Along the roads, specially on our long-distance road journey, we always came across ponds and lakes filled with lotus lilies. We see none of them today,
There was one at the start of our journey and that road used to be called Lotus Street. The Lilies that bloomed there were bright red and large in size In its place we now see a high rise building And that is the story everywhere – lakes, ponds and rice fields are displaced and in their place we see buildings.
A sad story indeed.
Do you have lotus ponds where you live?
