Morning at Lalbagh

Metroblogs deals with a lot of current issues, and the problems we face in this city every day…so I thought I would strike a note of calm with a mention of Lalbagh . It is a great place to go to…at any time, but especially in the morning, when a calm environment and the sight of the majestic trees, a variety of birds, and beautiful flowers sets one’s mood of serenity for the entire day.

Here’s a picture of lilies in the Lalbagh lake, with the leaves glinting in the morning sunlight, and the flowers glowing translucently…

Lilies, Lalbagh 7 mar 07

If only our authorities would stop thinking of land as only a place for people to build housing on, and decided to lay out more parks and public spaces like this…Bangalore would once again become, truly, a garden city.

    hmm.. unfortunately even where they build parks these days, they spend all the effort on making a lawn and forget about the trees! There are many park areas created in last 2-3 years in South Bangalore and most of them have large lawn areas and hardly any trees planted.
