Am in a swoon as the Monsoons Clouds carry a Heavenly Fragrance over the hills of Bhuleshwar Village near Pune, Maharashtra, India .

The Hills in the background form the basis of an earlier blog titled DIVINE SHADOWS.

Oh! The Heavenly Fragrance 

“Rajnigandha”  ( literally translated as Fragrance of the Night)  is a flower which belongs to the Agave family , Agavaceae and you must head to the nearest florist  (for Pune citizens head to Bhuleshwar instead )  to experience the magical aroma  exuded by them.

Alas, I wish I could share the Magical  fragrance of the  Pinkish – White Buds  ( close up in the Featured Image) with a mystical overpowering aroma.

Stalks of White Fragrance

The Fragarance of Rajnigandha ( Hindi), Mexican Tuberose ( English) and Polianthes tuberosa ( Scientific name) is etched in Indian Mythology and the Amazing Fragrance that emanates from the flowers is steeped in the Imaginative World of Magic.

Held aloft on Slender Stalks I was able to spot only Two Flowers in a vast field of White  Rajnigandha Buds.

Fragrant Blooms

Is it a surprise that the  Fragrant Rajnigandha  is the basis of many a Perfume across the Globe ?

Am drowsy with the Awesome and Enchanting Aroma that emanates from the Fragrant Fields near the Bhuleshwar Temple.
