Since I have been in this eastward land (2 months), the Gulmohar has been in flower. A member of the pea family; brought here to India from Madagascar.
There I saw my first proper fungi, some sort of Chicken of the Woods, I couldn't bear to touch the thing because of the beautiful colors it was producing.
I asked the equestrian gods for a blessing and powers they bore indeed. Here I landed. The great Himalayas.
