Orchids Galore

A heart-felt salute to one and all; let me introduce myself as a die-hard flower-lover, and in many ways a botanist who specializes in the study of flowers. To tell you the truth, I’m highly biased towards orchids because I find them to be the most fascinating plants on earth. Be it the cultivation of orchids, study of its various species and hybrids, pictures or study of the scientific names of the various species and sub-species, I make use of this blogging space as a medium to pen down all that I want to communicate and express.

My Hobbies and Interests….

While my first-love might be in the zone of flowers (especially orchids), my second love is in the field of fine arts. I take pride in my particularly artistic senses (sorry, but I like to brag sometimes). Despite being a Westerner, I have largely found solace in Oriental Healing, and like to explore various alternative therapies such as Yunani Medicine, Homeopathy, Reiki, Hydropathy, Herbalism, Aromatherapy, Acupressure, Acupuncture, Yoga and Meditative Healing.

Travel Stories

I know what you’re about to comment- that every Tom, Dick and Harry who visits a couple of places in or around his country and maybe takes one trip in say, two to three years, likes to call himself a ‘globe-trotter’. It might come across as a surprise to you, but I agree! The fact is that I do not consider myself as a globe trotter. Given my multiple professional pursuits and diverse interests, I can only travel once a year, but I really try to make the best of it. And I always try to pick understated, non-commercial and non-touristy locations, because that’s where you can truly experience the bounty of nature in all its pristine glory. In most of my pictures and travelogues, you will find a sort of solemnity and inner repressed euphoria, which is characteristic of my inner self.
