Everyone is familiar with a jackfruit, a yummy
yummy fruit. It has the honor of being one of the ‘muk-kanni’ in Tamil. They
are the three most famous and well known fruits namely – ‘Maa (mango), Pala (jackfruit)
and Vazhai (banana)’. With all that said, it is pretty much obvious that jackfruit
is one of the favorites of people here. A huge fruit that hands from a tiny
stalk with a prickly outer and a soft sweet flesh inside, the fruit is an irony
in itself – big body but a small stalk; prickly outer and a yummy flesh.
Each time I look at the tree, I think it
speaks to me. It says ‘Never judge a person on how fragile they seem to be, you
never know what they can hold/holding. My stem supports the fruit, huge fruit.’
The jackfruit says, ‘everyone has a very sweet and adorable character. It just
needs the right hands and technique and time to notice’ It made me smile,
indeed everyone is a gem.
