And Thousands Blooming Roses
I love to go for my morning walk in ‘Ban Bitan’ (part of Central Park) of Salt Lake. With instrumental music on the public address system, it is apleasure to walk. Ban Bitan, as it appears, is equally popular for the people of all ages. Upto 7.30AM, it remains free for the morning walkers- generally elderly groups. Thereafter, one is to pay a small fee. And it becomes popular with the younger groups. The other day, I met an old gentle man who was very critical of the youths coming to the park. Perhaps it is a very typical complaint.
The walking track has been smoothened with bitumen layer. I wonder if it would last with the heavy rain in this place. The artificial water body is another attraction. Some professionals come regularly for fishing. I like to see them and observe their attention at work. But my main attraction is the garden of roses. It is large. The variety and size of the flowers are appealing. Many differently prepared flowers’ beds in different corners of the Park are also nice.
