As I enter this holiday home the first thing to catch my attention is this huge ‘Madhu Malti-Bel’ which covers the back entrance of the house. It’s like a dream come true!
And as I discover in a walk around the lovely garden I realise it has all possible fragrant plants and trees around. OMG. This tall parijat😳 with the equally tall yellow desi SonChampa trees around it. The Ananta bush, the mogras, the Plumeria-Champa in every colour and variety! I discover that every corner has been filled with a fragrant bush. Bushes of Kamini fill the garden. Surely all year through must be filled with their seasonal aromas.
This MadhuMalti-bel is extraordinary! As it’s in full bloom.
I find myself on this rocking chair every morning taking a nap besides this aromatic creeper, till I am woken up by the nudge of a nose from this Indibreed dog who claims ownership of this verandah. Which then reminds me of the takeaway sentence from this trip, courtesy Amisha my daughter;
“You have to learn to co exist, it is the natural way to live”!
Well I am trying this new life lesson and it does make a lot of sense: Even when I learnt that I was actually on the pot with a frog under me 😩
As the sun rises and it’s rays hit the ground, this fragrance fills the surroundings. I have spent mornings and evenings, taking in this wonderful fragrance. It’s actually been a long standing desire to create this fragrant garden around me. Circumstances have not been conducive to it, I find myself living this dream here. The fulfilment of one more desire with kripa from my Thakurjee. (with help from my dear Tiki)
I found someone who has the same belief in transition of shrinathji back to Goverdhan at punchari ko lauta. As per my research and belief, by 2042 shrinathji will be back to Goverdhan.
Hope you read this🙂
