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?
