The mysterious blue behind the bright and red water melons an empirical study with special reference to Tamil Nadu; considering the awarness level of the general public

Everyone is tempted towards red and juicy watermelons being sold in markets by roadside vendors. But beware of extra redness you see in these watermelons. According to health experts, there is indeed something suspicious behind the sheen. Melons are a popular fruit of summers though its demand decreases after the arrival of mangoes. Yet this fruit tempts every passer-by because of its attractive shape and colour. But before you buy this red goodie, think twice as this redness may not be good for heath. "Most of the watermelons being sold in the market are very red and juicy. But one must remember that watermelons become sweeter only after 'loo' starts hitting the region. As loo is still not blowing over the state how these melons have turned so red and juicy," said an official of food and drug department. The question of whether people are aware about this adulteration is to be analysed and a general suggestion has to be given, thus the paper intends to cope with the study objectives.
