Monday Blues …. literally..!!

Aparajita

Again from the archives…. This particular flower is called “Aparajita/Shankhpushp” (Butterfly pea)Β and is a certain favourite of my mother. It is believed to be used as an offering to Lord Shiva and the name Shankhpushp is self-explanatory (Shankh=Conch , Pushp=Flower…. Shaped like a Conch). The one that I have posted is a hybrid of the actual flower and hence you’ll see the petals are more curled.
