Spring is nature’s way of saying, ”Lets’s party!”
– Robin Williams
A visit to the Mughal Gardens, at President’s Palace in Delhi, India was a feast for the eyes. I along with my three friends visited to feel the scenic beauty of nature under the blue sky. Before talking about my experience over there, I would like to tell you, what Mughal Gardens are all about, so you have a clear picture of it.
Mughal Gardens are basically, a group of gardens built by the Mughal emperors in India. It is styled in the Persian architecture. Some of its typical attractions are vibrant roses, crystal-clear pools and huge fountains, grabbing the attention of every passer-by. Shah Jahan, an important Mughal emperor marks the apex of Mughal Garden architecture and floral design. The chief attractions include the Herbal Garden, The Musical Garden, The Spiritual Garden and my most favorite The Bonsai Garden.
Walking along the garden, I could feel a sense of peace, I had never felt before. While my friends were busy getting snaps clicked for themselves, I got so busy capturing the mesmerising beauty in my phone. But I tell you its not even 10% of what one can experience there. I got tempted to the pool, that reflected the beauties of sky and garden; trees cut in a structured manner, some to provide shade merely, and others to produce fruits, flowers and leaves of vivid shapes. The melodious birds filled the garden with their rhythmic songs, the whole cooled by a pleasant breeze.
The complete layout of the Garden is structured to please any creature on Earth. I was particularly spellbound by the charm of red, vibrant,lively roses and their fragrance took me to the world of ecstasy. The symmetrical paved pathways and water channels follow the shapes of accurate squares with oblique or curved lines. This design is marvelous. I assure you fragrance of flowers, sight of fountains, shade of trees, water in the ponds and the beauty of nature here will take you to a journey towards the most soulful experiences.
Mughal Garden is one magnificent garden which will evoke in many a feeling of delight and contentment as they have experienced the ”Beauty at its Best”.
Trees, flowers, birds, sunshine, lakes, fountains, grass…..are just a few to name. But the expanse of beauty they spread have a fame.
We all are aware of the fact that nature surrounds all of us and it pleases all of us. However, what if you are left all alone in a huge garden, with lots of sky-touching trees, broken up yellowish-green leaves, a lake down the valley, and a melodious yet misterious chirping of birds ? How would you spend time for approx.3 hours waiting to see your friends. Well I am sure for many of us it might be boring, solitary and depressive because there would be nothing much to do. But I know for many it would become “A DAY IN THE HUB OF NATURE”.
So, here I am going to let you know of how this time was for me. I reached the well known Japanese Garden , also popularly known as Swarna jayanti Park, in Delhi, India. The garden is basically divided in 4 adorable sections which can fill any nature lover with the delight of contentment. I sat down on one of the benches under the Banyan tree as I needed a shady place amidst the sun-kissed park in the summers of Delhi. My first hour here was quite depressing since my friends were supposed to reach at 9 but due to delay of metro and an always getting-delayed friend of mine, I had to wait there. Honestly, I felt like I loner and I am the stupid person waiting here.
Then, suddenly a gentle wind blew and touched my face in a miraculous manner. I felt like I am not as ill fated as I am thinking. I realised that I was sitting at a place where the beauty of nature was surrounding me. I feet that god h blessed me with his best creations. I was amidst the beautiful lush green trees, vibrant colourful flowers, small brown birds, crystal clear water of the pond….everything there was too miraculous to be described in words. I decided to capture that beauty. The snaps define the beauty virtually, as the real beauty of nature can only be felt by heart. I wish to share a few with you. Gradually, time flew away in the hub of nature, listening to the music of birds, smelling the fragrance of flowers, feeling the gentle winds and watching the still water.
This was the best experience till now. I wish you all to feel the real beauty of nature and be blessed with its serenity. I wish you all to have a mesmerizing time and a calmness in soul that stays forever.
