We got whiff of something extra ordinary happening in Heritage Garden at Powai in Hiranadani Gardens……..and rushed to discover,…… the flushing of young leaves on all the trees, ready to greet rains..….scent of flowers of Palm trees carried all around by the gentle breeze…… profusely flowering of Champagne Palm (Hyophorbe lagenicaulis), the unique American Oil Palm (Attalea cohune), Thatch Palm (Thrinax parviflora) and the ever beautiful flowers of Rudraksha (Elaeocarpus sphaericus) and above all, the fruits of Badhal (Artocarpus lacoocha) adding to the aroma……companionship and harmony among all gently growing things, native and non – native reminded me a verse by Rumi
“ There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth”
