From cafes perched in the sky to gourmet eateries only accessible by boat, these places are sure to satisfy more than just your stomach.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf.
