Pink Of Winter

Oblivious to the smoggy headlines all over the newspapers, these pink flowers smile and brighten our days…

Can anyone tell me the name of these flowers?

Highway Beauties

Somewhere on NH24, near Ghaziabad, a town in Uttar Pradesh, there are several Bougainvillea plants with flowers of different colors, magenta, orange, and white. They look glorious and their colors seem to get brighter when the morning sun light falls on them. Their presence on the highway adds a special touch and cheers you up. I noticed this recently on my way to work. May God bless the gardeners who planted these lovely shrubs…

I don’t know for how long these flowers are going to be around because soon the harsh summer would take over and destroy them completely till the next season.

Here are the pics.

Trendy Hair

Hair styles in India are no longer what they were like a few years ago. Gone are the days when Indian women yearned for thick, long, jet-black hair because that was considered a benchmark.

In a way, this is good because you no longer pine for something you don’t have and may not ever get. The trend these days is to make the most of whatever assets you’ve got through innovation, experimentation, and makeovers.

Even hair colors are getting wilder and funkier and their use is no longer restricted to the older age groups. The coloring agent most commonly used earlier was mehndi, which left behind a brownish-orange color. The chemical dyes, if at all they were used in the past, produced that much wanted dark black stain, but the effect looked a bit unnatural and didn’t quite go well with an aged face. But things have changed now and almost everyone seems to have a tinge of some color or the other in their hair and it’s not always from mehndi…

Just open your eyes wide and look around you. You will find lots of women with colored hair. Even men are not far behind in this race to look fashionable and trendy.

Another amusing thing I have observed is men and women with dark skin and black-brown eyes sporting blonde hair!

Take a look at these pics…
