These flowers have their name – Gulmohur. But we as kids always gave it the name May flowers as they bloomed in the month of May the month when we had summer holidays.
Nuns used to organise summer camps and we would attend those summer camps covering the distance on foot and that is when we had time to admire these trees lined up on both sides of the road that led us to the school, laden with flowers.
We would pick those flowers strewn on the road and take them home. Many memories are associated with these flowers – May flowers.
