Lalbagh Mango Festival
There is a mango festival in Lalbagh. Its a welcome exhibition. We got to see a variety of mangoes. But the vendors could have passed on some price discount to the visitors. Also, some explicitly declared "carbide free". Does that mean other mangoes are ripened through carbide and other artificial way? Except for the shop banners, most of the places were in Kannada. The welcome arch, the mangoes title board in the glass house were in Kannada. The organizers should not think that only Kannadas will visit the show. There are visitors from other states and other countries. Overall, I felt the 'grandness' was missing, while the intent of the show is really appreciable.
