Every year after the summer break, Balagokulams resume across the twin cities with Mango Festival. This year children of Balagokulam made this festival wonderful yet again!
Children brought different Mango recipes from their own hometowns and were delighted to share them with all their friends. Thanks to all the Balagokulam parents, who cooked different varieties such as Mango Dal dokli, Mango jelly, Mamidi tandra, Mango pachadi, Mango pulihora, Mango lassi, Mango panna , Aam ki lunjee. Children were indeed surprised to see the number of dishes that could be made out of Mango.
Children also got the oppurtunity to taste different varieties of Mangoes including Rasalu, Banginapalli,Kesari Alphansos etc; Healthily, some of them were brought from their own grandfather’s farms and thoroughly enjoyed mango festival!
In a few Balagokulams, even the games were planned such that they were all themed ‘Mango’!
Children learnt a lot regarding their own hometown delicacies, and learnt even more about the importance and joy of sharing!
