While we were preparing to welcome New Year 2015………the Shishir ritu, the gentle thief of colors, came silently, in the nights and took away all the colors around us……..leaving a blanket of winter chill, engulfed one & all.

But not for long……..as the Sun moves to change and realign its position on celestial path nudging the earth to show some colors…….the mood of the Gods are changing too………..they sends Rituraj Vasant to fill the earth with vibrant colorful flowers………it is said that color of every species of flowers have a meaningful message hidden in it and the flowers themselves have a language of their own………. the white fragrant flowers of Rajnigandha may send a signal of pure, honest, thoughtful love but combined with red color roses it offer a promise of adventure & excitement wrapped in mystery. Yellow color flowers of Ramdhan Champa (Ochana kirki) offers a hand of friendship & compassion but later changes it’s shape into Mickey Mouse becoming a child like and promoting innocence.

Such is the scene in Heritage Garden in Hiranadani Powai…….we invite you all take a colorful Tree Apppreciation Walk in there on 18th January,15 at 7.30am.
