Gulmohar trees in Delhi
In this city of dust,smoke and pollution there is some relief
Flowers are blooming on Gulmohar trees
So many of them its like.......... every where but a cool one
But....This big Gulmohar tree has no flowers
And this one has only a few

    I know how bad delhi used to be.. I used to take out my motor bike to go to work in the morning wearing a clean crisp shirt and by the time I used to get to the office, my shirt would look as if i'm wearing it for past one week.

    I love the smell that you get in night when a particular tree's flower (dont rememebr the name) blossoms, and the smell that you get when it rains for the first time in summer... No such thing over here...

    OMG....I experienced it when I stepped out of the airport before hitting the highway to reach Ludhiana...that didn't feel like Delhi. Darn, I can't remember the name of that plant either, but it has white flowers... was wonderful.

    Lovely pics!

    I remember what it's called: "Raat ki Rani", literal translation - The Queen of the night..hehe. I need to find the real name of that tree :)
