Canopy of Gulmohar Trees

Known by a number of names across the world, in India we call it gulmohar. Come April – May and the brilliant hue covers the city announcing the arrival of spring. For me it the memories of my growing up years associated with this tree that makes it special to me.

In my growing up years, I have spent many a lunch breaks gobbling my tiffin, playing with my friends, spending hours in detention and studying for my tenth board exams under these trees.

Beneath these flamboyant trees lies my happy place.
