Let us continue with our Amaltas love, sharing a pic from last year again. I have always loved trees, more so flowering trees. Growing up I was torn between the Ruby Red flowers of Gulmohur and the Golden showers of Amaltas. Two things clinched the deal in favor of Amaltas. The shallow rooted Gulmohur or Delonix regia is an import from Madagascar while #Amaltas aka Cassia fistula is 100 % desi just like me jee. But more than the desi / pardesi connection it was the Ghost scaring properties of the Amaltas fruit that clinched the deal. You see the dark tubular almost foot long Amaltas fruit pod when kept under the pillow scares the ghosts away, and that my dear reader was a very big deal for the budding Ghost Buster cum Vampire Slayer that yours truly aspired to be while growing up. Besides ghost busting properties Amaltas also has many medicinal uses that I learned during college #botany lectures. Anyways I have seen Amaltas blooming all the way from Kerala where it is the state flower to the serpentine hill roads of Kangra where this picture was clicked on the way to Indias' first Heritage Village #Pragpur in Himachal Pradesh.⠀ >⠀ Just below a steep incline on side of the road, this young Amaltas bloomed in full glory with cotton candy clouds protecting it from harsh June Sun. With hardly any traffic on this unnamed village road, I just squatted in front of the tree and waited. And Waited. And Waited to enjoy the #Goldenshower. First one bike passed by, then another, then a mini truck with timber and then came this biker and I instinctively pressed the shutter.⠀ >⠀ >>⠀ ⠀ >⠀ >>⠀ >>⠀ . ⠀ #Treemagic#TravelBlogger⠀ #naturewalk#MyIndiaCNN⠀ #motorcycle#LPMI#ISBTraveler⠀ #InstaHimachal#IndiaGram#incredibleIndia⠀ #Himalayas⠀ #Himachal⠀ #LPMI⠀ #floweringTrees#EverydayIndia#discover_India#desi_diaries#CountryRoad#biking#_soi #jj_forum_2254 . . . .

. . Follow your soul. It will always take you to the correct way. Because it knows the correct way 😃 . . Its was our last day at Udaipur and I really wanted to utilise our rented bike to the fullest. So here I was roaming around in an unknown city at 6:30 in the morning searching for frames. 😃 . . #rajasthan #udaipur #padharo_mahare_desh #India #regamindia #india_pixelz #ind#indiapictures #jaisalmerfort #photographersofinstagram #incredible #incredibleindia #wanderlust #storiesofindia #indiapictures #indianshutterbugs #photographers_of_india #indiaclicks #ind#india_gram #indianphotography #myindiacnn #culturvation #ig_namaste #indiacaptures #_indiadiaries #india_gram #SidTheWanderer #wahhindia
