ಬ್ರಹ್ಮ ಕಮಲ್, Brahma Kamal (Saussurea obvallata)



I recently had the opportunity to shoot the blooming of the Brahma Kamal flowers. It is told that they bloom only once in year, only during nights and they have/had a very pleasant smell..Enjoy maadi :)


Its told that they bring lot of Good Luck too...


In some places, its arrival is celebrated by distributing sweets!

There were quite a few flash bulbs glowing couple of days back due to this pleasant event!
