A Case of Exploding Mangoes
- By: Mohammed Hanif
- Narrated by: Paul Bhattacharjee
- Length: 10 hrs and 16 mins
There is a saying that when lovers fall out, a plane goes down. A Case of Exploding Mangoes is the story of one such plane. Why did a Hercules C130, the world's sturdiest aircraft, carrying Pakistan's military dictator General Zia ul Haq, go down on 17 August, 1988?
Was it because of: mechanical failure; human error; the CIA's impatience; a blind woman's curse; generals not happy with their pension plans; the mango season? Or could it be your narrator, Ali Shigri?
whatever happened to blind Zenab?

The story is amazing
Bhattacharjee's voice is amazing and makes the story even more spellbinding. The words and description hit many heart strings and even though the ending is known the suspense lingers .
