If you are still haggling with your fruit vendor about the price of Mango, you are probably not aware of the special treatment this fruit is getting in another part of the world. In Dubai, mangoes are being delivered in Lamborghini!
As can be seen in a video report by Gulf News, a Supermarket in Dubai is delivering the king of fruits to the doorsteps of its customers in a green coloured Lamborghini to give it the type of treatment it deserves. “The king should travel like a king,” says the managing director of the store, Mohammad Jehanzeb who delivers the fruit himself and also takes the customers for a short ride in the luxury car.
To be eligible for this special kind of delivery, customers are required to make a minimum order of Dh100, reports the Gulf News. “The idea is to put a smile on people’s faces and make them feel special,” says Jehanzeb.
The news has gone viral with videos of delighted mango lovers taking a joy ride in the supercar doing rounds on the internet.
“The joy ride was essentially meant for kids who have been confined at homes because of the coronavirus but adults are equally thrilled at the prospect of getting behind the wheels of my Lamborghini Huracan. I am happy to oblige them too,” says Jehanzeb.
“Each order takes about an hour. We do about 7-8 home deliveries a day but are hoping to ramp up the numbers to 12,” he adds.Arshad Khan who hails from the Indian city of nawabs – Lucknow- ordered the ‘nawabi’ varieties – Sindhri and Anwar Ratol – and said that his children were exhilarated after hearing the roar of the Lamborghini outside their Falcon City villa.
“For someone who hails from Lucknow — the land of the famous dussheri and landga mangoes — I was a bit skeptical about the taste of Pakistani mangoes. I ordered them for the sheer experience of seeing them come to my place in a luxury supercar,” Gulf News quoted Khan as saying. “It was quite exhilarating and I must confess that the mangoes were as delicious as the ones back home,” he added.
The love for mango is not just confined to India but extends to the entire subcontinent. With around 1500 varieties available in India alone. It has rightly been described by the Indo-Persian poet Amir Khusrow as “Naghza Tarin Mewa Hindustan” – “the fairest fruit of Hindustan”.
