Where have all the Litchies Gone?

The one thing I was looking forward to while taking charge in Muzaffarpur were the litchis. The day I left Cal to my everyday visits to the markets in Muzaffarpur, everyone spoke about the litchis and their tastes. Even TOI carried an article on the Shahi Litchies of Muzaffarpur. However, the rains keep playing spoilsport. Every day I think about the Litchies, some well wisher would come and ask me to wait till the first drops of rain fall on them. Today there was a ray of hope as a Nor’wester began to blow across the town. But the rains were no where to be seen and my wait for the litchis continue.

PS: Incidentally I’ve had the litchis today :-)
