Tales from Sikkim: oranges.

I was in third grade when I discovered the existence of sugar cane. I always thought sugar was made out of oranges. The tiny super sweet ones that grow in my aunt’s field. I was highly disappointed when I learnt that it was not so, and there are plants called sugarcanes for that. Living in the hills come with its own set of beliefs brought about by rugged terrains and winter landscapes and their byproducts thereof.

      1. Thanks for the follow and the likes. It’s quite a coincidence that I was reading a book by Anuradha Roy and came across the word Muntazir, I liked it immensely I think it means hills.

      2. The pleasure was mine and thank you for the same. Wow, that’s a nice coincidence. ‘Muntazir’ means ‘one who is waiting’
