    Default The urban scholar

    One of the most common flowering tree along the Ghodbuner road, atleast in our area, this beautiful Scholar tree(Satveen/Alstonia scholaris) with its fragrant bloom, mostly blooming during the month of mid September to early October, brings in a completely unique ambience especially in the night with the wild smell of the mass bloom spreading all around due to the mild breeze, or especially along GB road, due to the ongoing heavy traffic.
    Here is one such frame(a composite), with the mild morning traffic bringing in some drama to the scenery

    Nice blossoms. Saatveen is a medicinal plant. Good to see these trees are surviving the road pollution in Mumbai . Is that a train passing in the background? Thanks for sharing.
