The 'app' of all things....

Like any new romance, when the movement started, inexperience was viewed as freshness, tall claims were seen as romantic tales and like Sancho Panza blindly following Don Quixote, the peoples (the use of the word peoples here, is deliberate) of Delhi followed Arvind Kejriwal and his merry men. But the harsh morning light of reality has exposed the flaws that the romance of the night kept hidden, that talking and doing are two different things...
It is a sad awakening.... One hoped that this new movement would instill a sense of decency into a system that was degenerating into pettiness, little realising that juvenile behavior is no alternative...

Bougainvillea....

_MG_0370

One of the most hardy and beautiful flowers are the Bougainvillea. These flowers are called paper flowers. The actual flower of the plant is small and generally white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colours associated with the plant, including pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white, or yellow. Bougainvillea glabra is sometimes referred to as "paper flower" because the bracts are thin and papery.
