Bright and Beautiful in the City of Joy


A quiet afternoon in the Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden in Kolkata didn’t seem like a good idea at first , but there I was in front of the garden.With no plan for the day, I decided to take a quick walk. The auto driver did mention ‘the great banyan tree’ , supposedly one of the largest in the world , with a circumference of about 350 metres! What was intended to be a hurried visit, turned out to be a leisurely amble and an afternoon of all things bright and beautiful ! Not on the regular tourism circuit , but definitely worth a visit for nature lovers.

      This comment means sooooo much to me . This has been a tough year , taking a break from work and channeling my energies some place else , nature seems to be the best place for some repose whenever I have needed it . Thanks a ton and more for making my day and making me feel more confident ! Love and hugs ☺
