Bangladesh (Mangifera indica L.) belongs to the family Anacardiaceae, is an important and popular fruit of Bangladesh. It has a unique position in respect of nutritional quality, taste, consumer’s preference etc., among the fifty kinds of fruits grown in Bangladesh (Ahmad, 1985). The fruit is believed to have originated in the Eastern India, Asam, Burma or in the Malayan region (Mukherjee, 1997).
Mango is now recognized as one of the choicest fruits in the world market for its excellent flavour, attractive color and delicious taste. It has medium calorific and high nutritional values. Carbohydrate content in ripe mango pulp is 16.9% (Salunkhe and Desai, 1984). Besides, mango contains appreciable quantity of provitamin A, vitamin C and soluble sugar (Samad et al., 1975). The unripe fruits contain nearly 50% more vitamin C than the ripe ones and in mineral content, mango holds an average position among fruits and in containing iron, unripe mango is the first and ripe fruit, about the 16th position among all major fruits (Hossain, 1989). The fruit has really of immense value in respect of money and prosperity. In Bangladesh it is called as “King of the fruit”.
Due to certain limitations of soil and climate conditions, the mango grows better in some selective areas of Bangladesh. The leading mango growing districts are Nawabgonj, Rajshahi, Rangpur, Dinajpur and Kushtia. It is grown over wide geographical areas particularly in India, Pakistan, Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, Malayasia, Indonesia, Thailand, Burma and Srilanka. It has gained popularity in Egypt, South – East Africa, Hawaii and Northwest Australia.

House on Mango Street

...Simon Adelle UCOR 102 Paper 3 Professor Marcum Making It in A Man’s World April 29, 2013 “The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros exposes the life of the main character, Esperanza, for one year as she struggles with trying to find her place in America as a Chicana young girl while also coming of age. The novel starts the day Esperanza and her family of six move into a house on Mango Street, and immediately she expresses her antipathy for not only the house, but also for the area in which they move into and the people around who judge them because of their ethnicity. The story is not told in the traditional format of a continuous story divided into chapters, but rather Cisneros uses forty-four vignettes to allow for the reader to fully understand why Esperanza has the struggles that she has. Along with Cisneros’ illustrating Esperanza’s looking for her identity through images of Esperanza’s thoughts and female obedience, symbolism of violence, legs, the Statue for Liberty, and Nenny, and diction of Spanish words, not using quotation marks, and a maturing tone, she also uses these them to permeate Esperanza’s desperation to leave Mango Street throughout the whole novel. Cisneros’ use of vignettes highlights important moments in Esperanza’s life that emphasize how she develops over the course of a year. Cisneros uses the brevity of the vignettes to enhance the imagery to give the most vivid image through her limited amount of words...

Comparative Commentary - Mango St and Annie John

...Comparative Essay: gender roles in The House on Mango Street and Annie John Question 3: To what extent do male and female literary characters accurately reflect the role of men and women in society? In this essay I will analyse to what extent the characters in the novels The House on Mango Street (text A), by Sandra Cisneros, and Annie John (text B), by Jamaica Kincaid, reflect the role of men and women in society. These two novels criticise patriarchal societies, where “women are taught to think as men, identify with a male point of view and to accept as normal and legitimate a male system of values…” . In both of them, there are clear examples of chauvinism, which conditions the lives of Esperanza Cordero, a “Chicana” who lives in a Latin neighbourhood in the USA called Mango Street; and Annie John, who passes her childhood and part of her adolescence in Antigua, an island in the Caribbean which until 1981 was a British colony. In the following paragraphs, I will describe and analyse diverse illustrations of patriarchal society seen in both novels. These examples will be used to explain male and female roles in this kind of society. Firstly, both societies are more permissive with men than with women. In this way, males are allowed to act freely, while women are constantly being judged for their actions. In text A, we can notice Rosa Vargas’s situation. As the text says, “she is the only one against so many […] [and] cries everyday for the man who left without...

Mango Fashion Retailer - Case

...Mango is one of the most well-known clothes retailers in the world and the most successful one from Spain. Although I was aware of the international awareness and presence of Mango, I was surprised about the large success that Mango had all around the world. Considering that they are now operating in more than 90 countries all around the world, it is very impressive how fast they have grown and how well their strategy that is based on internationalization has worked well for Mango. One of the facts that surprised me was how fast they were able to grow within Spain, considering that within the first 8 years they opened 100 shops all around Spain. When considering the growing importance of Internet today, it is crucial for a multinational company such as Mango to have a well working IT sector. When looking at the general development of online shops for clothes retailers, Mango was definitely one of the pioneers in that area as they already started their Internet department back in 1995 and have since constantly been building up and adapting to new trends. Mango has decided to keep all their IT department within the company and is employing more than 100 people in their IT department that are responsible for the e-commerce sector of the company. Advantages are definitely that all the control over the company’s actions is based within the company. This improves the speed of communication within the company and also makes sure that they have everything under control and are...

The House on Mango Street

...HE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET BY SANDRA CISNEROS SHORT PLOT / CHAPTER SUMMARY (Synopsis) The story is told by Esperanza, and begins when she first moves to Mango Street, a poor, Hispanic neighborhood in Chicago. Esperanza says that she has lived in many different places. She implies that she is close to her family, and describes their interactions and even their hair. She tells us she does not like her name, because it is too long and because it was her grandmother’s name. Her grandmother did not want to get married, but was forced to by Esperanza’s grandfather. Slowly, Esperanza begins to meet people in the neighborhood. She meets Cathy, a stuck-up girl, and Lucy and Rachel, who live across the street. Sisters, these two will become Esperanza’s best friends on Mango Street. They are loud and sassy, just the opposite of Esperanza, but this is what she likes about them. Esperanza talks about her younger sister, Nenny, to whom she feels close in a strange way, even though sometimes they annoy each other. For example, when they visit a used furniture store and the owner plays a music box with music so beautiful Esperanza begins to cry, Nenny naively tries to buy the box. The man says it is not for sale, and Esperanza is embarrassed by her sister. Esperanza describes other people from the neighborhood. Meme Ortiz has a dog that is big and clumsy, just like him. Louie’s cousin got arrested for stealing a car. Marin is waiting for some rich man to find her and take her away...

House on Mango St Essay

...English 102 3rd November 2014 How Far the Fruit Will Fall The Novel “The House on Mango Street,” takes the one on a journey through the eyes of a young girl named Esperanza. Initially, Esperanza appears to be an unreliable narrator because of the characters oblivious actions and the authors writing style and use of vignettes. However, the concise and brief approach gives the story more depth and allows one to become immersed in the story. The novel becomes animated with Cisneros less is more approach; the imagination springs alive with the minimal details. Cisneros emphasis is the fact that Esperanza’s perception changes throughout the story. Esperanza is on a pursuit to find herself and her true identity as she becomes a woman.

MIRAVALLES DONITA S. ESTRELLA KREANNE IRISH J. MILLANO ANGELA LEONOR M. MUTUC Researchers CLUSTER 1: APPLIED SCIENCE TEAM CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Economic crisis runs throughout different places in the world. The Global Economic Crisis pulled countries down from around the globe to a recession. Wide-ranging declines in many aspects of growth characterize the overall impact it had on the global scale. This is the main reason why people tend to lessen the spend of money. To reduce spending, households had to buy cheaper goods, for example, instead of buying branded clothes; people tend to buy more affordable clothes. People also tend to lessen the electricity and water consumption. Another way is using charcoals instead of Liquefied Petroleum Gas or LPG in preparing or cooking their food. Almost all of us are aware of Global warming. It is the unusual increase in the Earth's surface temperature since describe the beginning of the 20th century. Scientists believe that this is caused by some human activities like illegal logging, deforestation, burning of garbage, fumes of factories, and smoke from vehicles, improper deposal of garbage and regular using of insecticides.

House on Mango Street

...Tiffany Scott English 1020 Dr. Hall 5/10/2015 The House on Mango Street The house on Mango Street was based on the life of a little girl named Sandra Cisneros. She wrote the book based on her life growing up. She was born in Chicago in 1954 where she had six brothers and was the only daughter. Growing up, her mother and father moved Cisneros and her brother around a lot. “Because we moved so much, and always in neighborhoods that appeared like France after World War II, empty lots and burned out buildings, I retreated inside myself” Cisneros said when explaining all her moves as painful experiences. She found a way to deal with her life by writing. This led her to writing the book, The House on Mango Street. As the story began the writer explained why she had her name. That girl’s name was Esperanza. She was named after her great-grandma. She never knew her great-grandma but she would have really like to have known her. She never liked her named but it did have some meaning to it. Other than it being the name of her great-grandma it also means hope in English and sadness in Spanish. She then explained how they didn’t always live on Mango Street. Before that they lived on Loomis and before that they lived on Keeler Street. But even before that they lived on Paulina Street and that’s all she can remember. This book is written in a very different manner, it seems a lot like a personal diary. The technique of the book is according to a story told from a girl's point of...

The House on Mango Street

...The House on Mango Street The House on Mango Street portrays a young Latina, Esperanza Cordero, dreams, hopes, and plans for the future. This coming-of-age novel has her growing up in Chicago with other Chicanos. But she is determined to do better for herself and her family. At the beginning of the book Esperanza is ashamed of the house she has. When people look at it she feels embarrassed that it is the place that she calls home. She wishes that she could live in a "real" house, one that she would be proud of. The house that her parents promised her with a green yard, real stairs, and running water with pipes that worked. She dislikes the house on Mango Street because of its sad appearance and cramped quarters are completely contrary to the idealistic home she always wanted. "I knew then I had to have a house. A real house. One I could point to. But this isn't it. The house on Mango Street isn't it. For the time being, Mama says. Temporary, says Papa. But I know how those things go."I totally understand her feelings. I was embarrassed by my neighborhood. I would tell people I lived in the “ghetto”. My mother would get mad because it wasn’t true. We lived in a very nice two-bedroom apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Nowadays, people would kill to live in that location. At the end of the story, Esperanza knows she is going to leave The House on Mango Street, but she also realizes that she is going to come back because it did play a huge role in her childhood...

The House on Mango Street

...In all aspects of life, women are pressured to be someone that they are not. They are put in situations that force them to chose a path of life. In The House on Mango Street, Esperanza is forced to think and hope about the future, and leaving Mango Street, because she is surrounded by women like her who are pushing her to become an adult. The first example in the book is Cathy. By Cathy leaving the neighborhood, she makes Esperanza realize how much the neighborhood is changing. And, being fortunate enough that her and her family can leave, in a sense makes Esperanza want to leave even more. The second claim is Marin. Marin came to Mango Street to live with her aunt and uncle, but she really wants to go back to Puerto Rico to marry her boyfriend. Another example of someone wanting to leave Mango Street. She wants to leave, get married, and get a job – she is another role model for Esperanza showing her that she needs to start living like an adult. Alicia, a girl just like Esperanza, already has to take care of her own children. When Esperanza sees this, she wants to leave Mango Street more than ever. Although there are plenty reasons and examples to show Esperanza why she needs to leave Mango Street and have a better life, when Esperanza goes to Elenita to read her future, she tells her that home is in her heart and that she will probably never leave Mango Street for the rest of her life, but Esperanza does not want to hear that, she wants to hear that she will leave...

Mango Street

...Reading Response: The House on Mango Street The various allusions to children’s stories and popular culture in Sandra Cisnero’s The House on Mango Street portray a shift in the feminist paradigm toward publicly rejecting the societal conformations to gender roles, specifically those of women, and also function well in providing a connection between the characters of the stories and the readers. Esperanza, the main character, seems to be invested in a fantastical view of the world that she alludes to in describing her experiences and telling her stories. In the course of the development of Esperanza’s character, it can be seen that while she first admires and aspires to be the Cinderella that she feels like when the shoes given to her fit, she grows into a person that uses stories as a means of escape—her recital of “The Walrus and the Carpenter” to Ruthie—and finally, in her allusion to Rapunzel when she describes Rafaela’s marriage, it seems that Esperanza comprehends the clichéd gender roles and realizes women accept their lives as helpless objects in need of rescue. Besides these instances, various other women, such as Marin, “Waiting for a car to stop, a start to fall, someone to change her life” (27). Also, any reader who has experienced Western culture in her upbringing would either relate to and be affected by Esperanza’s changing attitude toward fairy-tales and children’s stories. Although Esperanza’s connection to such tales might be naïve and not a transformation...
