The smell on ladies fingers.

Hey, I mean the vegetables!

In our part of India, ladies finger is the best green vegetable and almost every one loves them. There is even a legend that says ladies finger increases your mathematics ability. I suppose it was a method to make the children eat it.

Last week, I bought nearly one kg of ladies finger from the local shop. After cooking, it let out a bad smell that my husband identified it as a chemical smell though he was not sure whether it was a pesticide or a fertilizer.

Organic farming is yet to catch on in India.
