Expensive simple delights

They say coconuts are not coming into Mumbai -- but I still manage to get them at Rs 18 each, so the position is not so bad this summer. But what is happening to beloved and seasonal jamun. Seems this summer may pass without me staining my tongue purple. It is costing Rs 50 a kg, that too at limited spots, like the vegetable market outside Khar station. Can u imagine... I felt looted, but I bought them any case, half kg for Rs 100, before the recession does me in... the jamuns look raw to me. I have put them away in the fridge foolishly and now have to eat half-raw jamuns costing the earth and not even get my tongue purple:(
