Aam Naama, an ode to mangos, is a podcast series in Urdu, comprising 10 episodes, celebrating the national fruit of India. Ghalib to Gulzar, poets fell in love with mangos. South Asian literature and music thrive on the metaphor of Aam. The series ‘Aam Naama’ goes beyond the metaphor, discussing various varieties of mangos, their cultivation and the love of Muslim rulers for one and only the Aam.
The series Aam Naama contains interviews with the scholars who have spent their life working in the mango orchards, musicians singing Aam songs, poets and authors paying tributes to the king of fruits. The series is presented by Pervaiz Alam and Meher-e-Alam Khan.
