Bougainvillea

14 Dec 2019, Mumbai

Kagaz-ke-phool in hindi language.

Here and there, everywhere in our city I had noticed this flower. It blooms and expands in the same way like the thoughts in the human mind.

I had been taught that flowers are known for special qualities like its beauty, sweet odour, attractive colours. But this one did not meet the benchmark.

The flower is odourless, appears artifical and the most important part is its availablity all around.

We do not respect much of what is available in a lot of quantity and that also free of cost.

Bougainvillea, the name in English; boosts its appearance. The name Bougainvillea makes you wonder of something special, unique and rare.

Then one day you learn its english name and then the wondering-blooming thoughts in your curious mind burst like a ballon.
