The greens of monsoon

DSC_4222-min

Having spent over a decade at Delhi and shuttling between Delhi and Gurgaon for years, I usually associate Delhi Monsoon to flooded roads and nerve-racking traffic jams. The scene is not that different when I rewind my memories to childhood as well, except for the traffic jams. We witnessed floods every year, and the National Highway that ran very close to my home would be filled with relief camps. Schools were shut down and people lost their homes and cattle and of course the vegetation was ruined. It took months to get back in shape and restore the lost assets.

Bad things aside, monsoon is also a blessing for the dying plants after the severe heat wave of the summers, especially in this part of India. Once the rain starts pouring, the buds start showing and slowly, the beautiful flowers start blooming all around. The dust layer is also washed away, revealing the beautiful shade of green. These are the little luxuries of life and I sure relish them.

It rained heavily today and once it started sprinkling, I took the opportunity to take a quick walk and click a few pictures of the flowers and leaves. I thought of sharing them with you all. Enjoy J
