Roses, Ritual, Happy Face

I was back at one of my all time favourite Delhi market, the Phool Mandi (flower market) in Connaught Place. This time I knew exactly what I wanted to buy: 108 red roses for a religious ritual. But with so many beautiful flowers all around, keeping focus is difficult. So here are some of my favourite photos from the trip.

This time I found these beautiful decorative items along with colored glass vases in the market as well. These sell at the early morning market for extremely cheap prices. The same vases at malls cost around INR 500 to 600 and here a good bargainer (I am proud to say I am one) can manage to buy one for just INR 50.

I came happy with my purchase. The 108 red roses were offered to the Shivling, in a temple located near my home.And a dozen I gave to one of my very good friends, who also happens to be my colleague. Aditi was happy with the flowers and the gesture increased my points. So everyone was happy.

P.S: Notice the Kinley bottle holding her flowers. Nice idea for a temporary vase, I'd say.

Roses are definitely great mood up-lifters... yellow roses are my favorite! I love tuberoses too :)
