Rose garden – a tribute

A stone immortalizes the names of the two men most instrumental in planning and executing the Rose garden in Chandigarh. MS Randhawa and MN Sharma not only dreamed up the concept of the rose garden but were also responsible for the panning of every tree-lined avenue in the city. A lot of the natural beauty of this urban complex came from their fertile minds and tireless efforts.



About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

    • A sweet memorial to a couple of the founders of the city who have been all but forgotten, sadly. This rock is in one corner of the large garden, even most morning walkers would not know of its existence. Thanks for the sweet words. 🙂
