Innocence is bliss!

 Incredible India! Photo courtesy:  welcomenri      Today, you won't recognize the place. It has developed into a  busy town.   But during 80's this place was happier, cooler and pleasant. Each plant ,weed or trees seemed happy with their own unique flowers  and fruits. People were innocently happy. Festivals had a special charm as people  open heartedly  indulged in merrymaking.                   How a child looses his/her innocence? I think when he is  exposed to rough and complicated experiences.  My childhood was confined to my school, cousins and my friends  at the neighborhood.  That Asoka tree with big branches at my neighborhood, I remember , always had flowers......  and why not? They say that Asoka blossoms  at the touch of "Kanya" (virgin).  Sounds funny right? But it's an old belief  better not to question it!  It is an important tree  in the cultural  traditions of the Indian  subcontinent and adjacent areas
