The Botanical Gardens of Srinagar

White veiled girls and gelled up boys giggle and snap photos striking poses with contorted faces. Pruned greenery and manicured lawns can be see in the backdrop. Flowers that are every shade of pink and purple compete for the ground with the dubious shrubs, hassling the ever-scurrying gardener. And off to the left lies liquid Tanzanite where boats splash alongside 3 meter high jets. People come up a couple inches from my face and stare, when I vocalize a “Kaise hai” they shriek and run away. It’s 10 rupees but pretty priceless.
