The mango season may be on its last leg in India but in Pakistan the fruit is still sweet enough to temper the bitterness in ties between India and Pakistan.
After the recent acrimony over Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit's meeting with separatists, which forced India to cancel the foreign secretary-level dialogue, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has made an attempt to reach out to his counterpart Narendra Modi. He has sent the choicest mangoes, mostly Sindhri and Chausa, to Modi, reported the Indian media.
It is learnt that the mangoes, all personal favourites of Sharif, were delivered to Modi through "official channels" on Wednesday evening.
This gesture is viewed as being a softener ahead of Sharif-Modi talks to be held later this month in New York on the sidelines of UNGA.
