25th February 2007 :: Strange Insect and the witch

This flower is called “chudail booti” (witch flower) in Punjabi and it is wild flower. In north nobody really cares about this flower and it usually grows in the hedges and it is never offered in the temples in north India. It may not be considered good but I have nice memories of it. As a child I used to visit my aunt in RK Puram in Delhi and this used to be on the hedges of all the houses. On my way to her home from the bus stop I used to pick these. I liked them because it is not just a flower but a bouquet of flowers, all these tiny flowers are a part of a single flower which is a little over an inch in diameter. These are usually found in yellow, orange and pink colors.
