 All phrases in Hindi with a local flavour, translation might not be so much fun. However, shall give literal translations. These signs are in a local pub in Bandra east.

Next to the Beer Solution poster - Your brother will take care. Next - Son, you won't be able to do it.

Bottom left - Your brother doesn't get high. On the beer mug - Vitamin P (drink in Hindi).

Bottom right - Where can I find a friend like you?

Jamun


Bought some Jamuns yesterday. It is the season for Jamuns now. It is fleshy and has a seed like berries. It is slightly sweet and sour, and colours your tongue purple. 😀

Syzygium cumini, commonly known as Malabar plum, Java plum, black plum, jamun or jambolan, is an evergreen tropical tree in the flowering plant family Myrtaceae, and favored for its fruit, timber, and ornamental value. It is native to the Indian Subcontinent, adjoining regions of Southeast Asia, including Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and the Andaman Islands. It can reach heights of up to 30 metres and can live more than 100 years. A rapidly growing plant, it is considered an invasive species in many world regions. The Jamun fruit is not only known for its nutritional value but also it is a powerhouse of several health benefits.
