Delhi

“Trees will be everywhere, in every garden however small it be, and along the sides of every roadway, and Imperial Delhi will be in the main a sea of foliage. It may be called a city, but it is going to be very different from any city that the world has known…”

The avenues, streets, and gardens of Delhi can be seen carpeted with 'harsingar' or 'shiuli' flowers, and the air filled with its mild fragrance in October mornings. A small deciduous tree with pale or dark grey bark – its dark green leaves are sandpapery in texture and it can be recognised through its flowers small white in colour with 5-8 petals and a bright orange tube at the end. The blooming of these night-flowering jasmine suggests the city bidding farewell to the scorching summers of Delhi and the beginning of the wondrous Autumn.

Delhi landscape; often indulging in tree climbing, and tree spotting activities in our neighbourhood, streets and parks which included 'shesham' or north-Indian rosewood, 'jamun', 'neem' or Indian lilac, 'shehtoot' or mulberry trees, 'semal' also known as silk cotton tree.

While passing through the roads and avenues of Delhi, especially during summers, one can witness rows of different trees in their splendour.

“Most city trees are cultivated ornamentals, found in street, in parks and gardens, and have to a large extent supplanted the original, native flora of Delhi”.
