Dwarka: If you visit Dwarka these days, you would be amazed to see the beautiful roads adorned with flowers. All across the sub-city, Amaltas, Gulmohar, Olenders, Ficus and Bougainvillea are defining the beauty of the surroundings.
Some of the lanes like in Sector 10 from Metro Station towards Sector 6/10 market and in Sector 22 near Vardhman Mall and its surrounding have become yellow due to full bloom of hundreds of Amalatas trees.
A nature lover and resident of Sector 10, SK Singh said, “This is our privilege that we live in a sector covered with full bloom AmaItas these days. Watching the flowers during evening and morning walk is a real pleasure for me. Usually I take a round in that stretch from Godrej Apartments, Sector 10 till the Jain Temple, Sector 10 and witness that not a single tree is of other species. All are of Amaltas, laden with flowers.”
The particular stretch of about a kilometer from Godrej Apartments till the Jain Temple in Sector 10 have hundreds of such trees. Due to the colour of the flowers, residents say that street as ‘Golden Street’. Across Dwarka, such Amaltas trees are seen in Sector 22, 23 and 12 while Gulmohar trees and other flower plants can be seen at many places along the roads.
An environment activist and a resident of Sector 16B, Ramesh Mumukshu planned and visited the area today and clicked some photographs.
He shared to CitySpidey, “The city must have such species of trees as they sustain in this soil. Seeing the growth and the beauty of such trees in Dwarka in summers, I feel that horticulture has done a great job here. Amaltas and Gulmohar trees are making the sub-city beautiful these days. In this period of Covid, such a wonderful natural scene in Dwarka gives a great feeling of positivity and freshness.”
