Passiflora ("Panch Pandav" (referring to the five Pandavas in the Hindu epic, the Mahabharata). There are (apparently) a 100 of those blue petals - one for each of the Kauravas, and 5 of the green ones in the centre - one for each of the Pandavas. The green bulb in the centre symbolises the Pandava queen Draupadi, and the three filaments are for the holy trinity of Brahma-Vishnu-Shiv. AND the white radial in the centre is the Sudarshan chakra of Lord Krishna. The colour blue is moreover associated with Krishna as the colour of his aura.)

I'm merely a guy who enjoys capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. Perhaps, it's like a traveler hoping to record his memorable journey, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
If you could spare some time, please do give any comments, constructive criticism, tips and suggestions that will help me become a better photographer. (I understand only English and Hindi).
