A Walk Through The Mullick Ghat Flower Bazaar

No wordy post today. Just an early morning stroll through the hustle and bustle of the Kolkata wholesale flower market, overflowing with reams of brilliant marigolds strung into garlands.

While I love the vivid yellow and orange blooms and always have bowls of them lying around my house, the ones that grabbed my attention here, were these less showy lotus buds. Don’t you think there is something serene and calming about the lotus? No wonder it is associated with the Buddha.

Now lets take a walk…..

If you are into flower markets, do check out my earlier post on the scented colours of Pak Klong Talat in Bangkok

And happy travels…..no matter where life takes you.

  1. Beyond words. Such a different perspective on flowers. Oh how I wish I could click such concept pictures one day…..

    Kolkata my love, a city that has it all 🙂

    1. A rather belated thank you for your lovely comment Gitanjali. I am no photographer! I do believe that with determination and enough practice anyone can snap such images.

Let me know what you think
