aaah… Rajanigandha
a very romantic song by Hemant Kumar… talks of how he just gave a bunch of tubroses to his girlfriend and said goodbye… and Uttam Kumar was for always bringing Rajanigandha to Suchitr Sen, his heroine in those BW Movies in the 160s… such memories…
But in the west for many decades the white fragrant flowers were/are symbol of mourning used primarily by Funeral homes at memorial services…
same flower, same scent, same spiritual energy .. yet two different cultures use them differently…
