A HOUSE in Thirupattur, Tamil Nadu in India, has been attracting crowds because of a tree bearing pigeon-shaped mangoes, reported Tamil Nesan and Malaysia Nanban

The owner, Indian Railways employee Ibrahim Shariff, was reported to have said that pigeon-shaped mangoes appeared on a tree branch after he rescued a pigeon from a snake.  

The incident purportedly occurred several months ago when Ibrahim saw a snake trying to swallow a pigeon near the tree and quickly used a stick to prevent it. 

When the mango season came, he noticed pigeon-shaped fruits on the branch where the snake and pigeon were earlier found. 

  • National Union of Teaching Profession (NUTP) secretary-general Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam was reported as urging Tamil schools to get more computers to meet the needs of their students, according to Tamil Nesan.  

    The daily quoted him as saying that the move was to ensure Tamil school students were on par with students from national and Chinese schools.
