The Heaven most People Miss… 

The Tulip Gardens in Srinagar are open to public from the 1st to 15th of April.

After longing to be there for years I finally found myself smack in the middle of them!! They took my breath away to say the least. 


The setting of the gardens, in a Valley, overlooked by lofty mountains and fluffy clouds is supremely beautiful. Row upon row of the most glorious colors compliment each other and the eyes soak it all in and the heart releases a sigh of gratitude at such beauty!

Plant and let Bloom! 

I know homes by the flowers that peep out of boundary walls during spring! 

Sometimes I tell the driver, Bhaiya, uss gali me lena… And I am seldom disappointed. There, peeping through the concrete, would be the most startling creeper celebrating spring! 

At other times, it is trees. I know which home would be surrounded by a blaze of orange Palaash or stunning yellow Laburnum or the cool of mauve Jacaranda. 


There are strangers whose personality I try and discern through the wilderness they choose to have in front of their home or disciplined beds of color-coordinated flowers. It’s interesting. 

So plant and let bloom, in you garden or in your balcony, these miracles of nature…For you never know who will change their path to include a view of them, on their way home and send a silent blessing your way!
