It is said “Where flowers blooms so does hopes”……..with this quote in our heart we went in search of such garden in Mumbai and we saw this fashion parade of flowers in Hanging Garden In Malabar Hills……Flowering of Sandalwood tree and tons of figs on Ficus pumila, the only Ficus which is a climber……..we discovered that not only each tree has a story to tell but there are people who have numerous stories to share…….a young boy of 30 selling peacock feathers from the age of ten, could speak some 8/10 languages including Spanish, French which he learned from the foreigner who come to visit the garden …..Another man has  been coming to this garden for last 45 years every day from Vile Parle, if he does not come for few days he falls sick that is his belief…….This ancient garden gives a sense of calmness and hope that all will be well and there will be good monsoon……….We invite you all to take a Walk among flowers with us on 8th may.
