My blogger, photographer,,travel-writer friend Nisha Jha, who blogs here and has travelled solo in various far eastern countries, also maintains a page , Le Monde -A poetic travail where she posts amazing photographs and writeups from her trips, amidst new places and peoples.
She posted this picture of a giant hibiscus variety that she saw in Malyasia, and the hand you see in the photograph is hers; held specifically, so that you can imagine the size of the hibiscus.
The first thought that came to mind on seeing this, was that of Ganpati (or Lord Ganeshji) , who loves these flowers, and is worshipped with the red variety of these flowers.
Am putting own here the first thoughts that came to mind (in Hindi).....and then possibly a completely inadequate translation in English....
