Rose Festival – Feb 2016

At the fag end of February, Chandigarh celebrates Rose festival. The Rose garden is the oldest theme garden in the city that boasts of a ‘garden of the five senses’, a chrysanthemum garden and many more. Roses are in bloom in February and the rose festival has been a presence on the city calendar since I was a child. Of course it has grown into a lot more than it used to be, but at its heart it is still an occasion to enjoy the balmy, end-winter sun in a beautiful garden surrounded by flowers and have a little fun.

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.

  1. *sigh* You are heading towards summer and I am heading towards winter. I’ll enjoy your photos of summer while I stare at white cold snow. Deal? 🙂 ❤
