Global love for four South American gentlemenIt was in 15th century. Portuguese starring pouring into the New World. Incan plateaus attracted their attention. Four sombre gentlemen of Andes caught their eye.
Each one of these gentlemen possessed a uniqueness.
Potato, the gentleman from underground. This gentleman will soon be the most loved person in the world. Because he was so versatile. He went with everything perfectly.
Tapioca is the second gentleman. He was rich. Super rich. In starch. In graininess.
Pineapple, the third gentleman, will one day overthrow the king of the fruits. This gentleman was born to rule with a crown upon his head.
Tomato, a gentleman loved as much as potato, he made everything better.
Such were the South American Gentlemen. Potato, a leader from all perspectives, a fine specimen who was well adapted to his surroundings. His versatility, richness in fat, protein, carbohydrates and nutrients earned him an unerasable fame.
Tapioca/ Sabudana , though was welcomed by Europeans, is widely used in India.
It's so rich in starch and protein but it is called as Poor man's rice here.
Pineapple. An irresistible beauty. Adorned itself in a regal fashion, it had already declared it's immortality because world is addicted to it's sweetness. Probably the sweetest of the four gentlemen.
Tomato. The most caring gentleman. He enhances the qualities of other gentlemen.
Such is the tale of the four sombre gentlemen from South America who hold the world under their feet today.
