Missing in action..

is what I am. I want to be in action but there is no way I can. The have so much work piling up at office, that I am seriously thinking of outsourcing?Anyone interested? I promise to pay you with truckloads of gratitude. As a poor social worker, thats all I can afford. 😛

I am aiming at having my presence felt here sometime by the coming weekend. Work should ease up by then and blogging will be back in full force. 🙂 But the weekend is still three whole days away and before it arrives, may be we should play a guessing game…just so that this space doesnt die altogether. You see that picture down below? Can you tell me what that is? No, not the jug. Its the stuff lying next to the jug that you need to put a name to.

Want a  closer look?Here it is..

Its really not that hard.Even if you think it is, give it a  try, just for kicks. 🙂 i will see you guys on the weekend…thats assuming I wont melt away and perish in this heat.

  1. plums !! if not that… maybe tomatoes of some weird imported variety… !!!

    surely not apples !!!! 😛
    no ya!! those arent tomatoes… u are a gujju, HC…and even u cant guess wat this is!!???? haaaw!!!

  2. crab apples or are they plums. They do not have the rich dark purplish tint plums have so my guess is they are some kind of crab apples. Most crab apples are usually white/yellowish and the red kind of throws me off.
    pooh, wat are crab apples!!!?? i know apples and crabs.. but crab apples i hvnt ever heard of!!!this is a very indian fruit, so im sure it isnt crab apples…

  3. Ohh, those red round stuffs? They are nature’s creation to ful

    1. Yeah.. there were two kokum trees at my grandmom’s. And we used to stone them to eat them. They rarely fall off when good, they rot so easily na.
