Flavour of the season

March 20, 2023

One cannot miss the fragments of beauty strewn around Krishnaraja Boulevard in Mysuru city even during the rush to carry on the business of life. Come April, the city’s streets, roadsides and grounds of parks are strewn with yellow flowers. These flowers not only cover the tree with a colourful halo but are strewn on the ground beneath the trees to form a radiant carpet of bright gold. The tree (Peltophorum pterocarpum) also called the Yellow Poinciana or copper pod tree, is found in large numbers with a spectacular display of brilliant yellow blossoms. The flowering season commences at the end of February and reaches its peak in the middle of April. [Pic. by M.N. Lakshminarayana Yadav]

    Just read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krishnaraja_Boulevard
    In there read under this title: “Diminishing Glamour ” where it says this: “Recently the glamour road has been neglected by the civic authorities and people have started using it as a parking space for vehicles”
    Similar boulevards exist here in New Delhi, and given the car culture of Indians , all boulevards every where in the cities of India are congested to the limit of choking the area.
    This was a good road in 1950s, where , one could stroll peacefully unhindered by vehicles and stray dogs.
