Spring is here, there are beautiful flowers blooming on my bougainvillea and bougainvillea is the only plant that survive beautifully throughtout the hot days of Summer season In Rajasthan. I water my plants twice, also fill pots of water with chilled water on rooftop for birds and bowls of water for street dogs. Everyone is starving for some chilled air, water and food And on such warm days what I crave for most is something chilled drink all the time, there are mint, sugarcane, बेल का शरबत and lemonade juices served all the time in my home for guests and myself.
