A Guava Fruit A Day

An apple a day
keeps the doctor away
is a proverb;

Alas! the cost of an apple
is more than twenty rupee;

It does not suit everybody's pocket,
So go to another alternative fruit,
Cost effective to all purse
and competitive in price;

Take it as a policy,
A Guava fruit a day
keeps diabetes away,
It is a new saying to follow from today.

Amala ghoosberry exacts apple in vitamin C and dead cheap
A guava fruit a day keeps the doctor away, is a right kind of prescription for a diabetic patient. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful advice.
So true! Besides, many different fruit have similar benefits! A very nice poem!
A powerful truth that teaches us the need to use what is accessible to us. Well done my friend!
The problem I face is that quava fruits cost much more than apples in my country! Neither is cheap so I am sticking to bananas, .Thanks for sharing
