Yeh Kahan aa gaye hum, yun hi saath chalte chalte……
Last spring I went to Kashmir to stay with one of my dearest school friends. When she mentioned the Tulip Garden was in bloom, I couldn’t wait to head there. She did warn me not to get my hopes high as it had been raining and the tulips in all likelihood would be damaged.
I still remember the moment I walked into the garden; the song “Yeh Kahan aa gayen hum” from Silsila started playing in the background – I swear it did.
I was absolutely mesmerised by the colour palette stretching in front of me; the blooms were just perfect. I didn’t know which way to point my camera first as I just couldn’t get enough of shooting the flowers. I wanted to capture every hue and stopped dead still when I saw the black tulips – Oh my lord! They are so exquisitely exotic. And well they are not really black but a very intensely deep purple.
