Fruited plains

Bazaar fruit. Not bizarre fruit.

Papaya, from the crowded bazaar lanes in Fatehpur Sikri, once the headquarters of the Mughal Empire on the hot Uttar Pradesh plains. The word bazaar, comes from Persian and subsequently Hindi, by the way.

The smoke in the photo is from the incense that many wallahs burn near their stalls.
