    Default The ghost bloom of the urban world

    ID: Alstonia scholaris

    One of the most fragrant annual bloomer, these seem to have taken a unique place in the urban biodiversity, especially due to its tendency to grow at a pretty fast pace. Seen along a long stretch of GB road, these trees, known for its fragrance and also for some ghost-ly stories, in the native places, tend to be very useful one from several point, be it for the general usage of its soft wood or the medicinal values it has. As per the traditional beliefs of certain communities of TuluNadu, the bark of these trees are pretty auspicious and a bitter concoction made out of it is consumed during certain time of the year, to keep away any form of ailments
    The fact that such precious life forms are nurturing amongst the harsh conditions of the urban scape is hard to believe, hoping that they continue to grow and flourish, bringing the much needed freshness and the annual fragrance bonanza to the urban dwellers
