In 500 BC, an English tourist reached India through Silk Route and passed through a forest. He lied down after being exhausted from thirst and hunger where an old man took him to his shack and offered him a vegetable to eat. He was told while inquiring that the vegetable was ‘bhindi’. The old man gave him the seeds of the vegetable which he sowed when he returned back to his country. He named it ‘okra’.
