Dussheri, or Chosa now,
Langra too is good somehow,
Some say Neelam wins the test,
But Vadra is the very best.
Lucknowi is not much liked,
Neelam too is somewhat yikes,
Rumani, Pairi and the rest,
But Vadra really stays the best.
Gulabkhas does hold its own,
And Fazli is to the manner born,
That Kishenbhog is full of zest,
But Vadra still remains the best.
Dare I root for Zawahiri,
Or would that be like Harakiri?
Himsagar or Kejri,
Would they beat Vadra majorly?
Beneshan or Badami,
(Nothing, though, like Beymani),
I say Husnaara, Himsagar,
So what goes it of your father?
The Vadra of Haryana though,
Is stuff that gourmands do extol,
The soil it needs is DLF,
And a bit of Robert’s own sweet self
So grow a mango worth your lolly,
And beat upstarts like Banganpolly !
