Bougainvillea. A flowering plant made for Mumbai.
Braving the soot and dust from the traffic, heat from above and from the surrounding concrete, and the non-stop noise, this plant on the highway divider outside the Octroi Naka is not just tough, it can add colour to the most oppressive environment. Made in South America but at home in Mumbai.
You can't miss them right now. They are in full bloom, and can be seen all over town at the moment.
