Saroj Kasaju: Best floral photograph:

Primula primulina (Spreng.) H. Hara

It was mid-monsoon and the dirt road leading to Kuri village was in a very bad state. We drove our jeep  with much difficulty and we had to give up the ride at 8000 ft. Now the climb to Kuri village at 11000 ft. has started. It was raining all the way and I had to carry all the loads by myself. I started clicking  all the way with much difficulty. Totally exhausted, I reached very close to Kuri village and I just missed the plant atop a cliff on the left side which I never saw before. Forgetting all my tiredness I tried to climb the cliff but could not get close enough to the flower. However, I could manage some shots from a distance and I was somewhat satisfied with the shots

Thanks a lot, Saroj ji.

That is true grit.
I can imagine the risks you take at this age, to bring so much new Flora to eFI.
I have not seen anyone like you before.
My salutes to your great work.
