These are the pictures of the flower bramhakamal captured in my gallery. The flower blooms at night and withers away the next morning itself. The flower has a very nice yet strong smell and the blooming season is during the rainy season which is normally June and July here. It is a potted plant and has only leaves which in turn give rise to more leaves from the nodes on the main leaf.
When I searched online for the same I got 2 results. One matched with mine and you can see a beautiful slideshow of the flower from bud to full bloom stage here. The other result was that bramha kamal is found in northern part of India in Himalayas and is purple in colour with greenish-yellow covering. I am not sure whether these are different species of the same flower or different flowers altogether so if anyone has any info on this please clarify. Meanwhile the ‘Flowers of India’ is a nice site to visit for people interested in information on flowers.
This line popped up in my head while going home from office. The handwriting is good and legible so if you can’t read get your eyes checked :p. Btw this doesn’t have any relation with one night stand ;).
