I knew a great Friend on Webshots by means of this flower also pictured in India and paid him a visit in India, a very kind, erudite and important man governing an industrial empire! He just wrote me at a time to tell me the scientific name and common name in English that I said not to know!!! So little things can have such a great power! Thank You Evan!
