Kumbha Sankramana And Shankarapura Jasmine!

Winter has almost bid goodbye after the Kumbha Sankramana (12.02.2014), in the Southern Bharathavarsha (India). It is a wonder that they came to know about this phenomenon! Every twig on all the plants showed fresh and tender leaves the very next day, magically!! Have a look at the photographs of my Shankarapura Jasmine creeper… They are singing and dancing in joy!

ಕುಂಭ ಸಂಕ್ರಮಣ ಮೊನ್ನೆ ಫೆಬ್ರವರಿ ೧೨ಕ್ಕೆ ಕಳೆಯುತ್ತಿದ್ದಂತೆ ಅದೇನು ಸಂಭ್ರಮ ಸಸ್ಯಸಂಕುಲದಲ್ಲಿ!  ಛಳಿ-ಛಳಿ ಎಂದು ನಾವುಕಂಬಳಿ ಹೊದ್ದು ಮಲಗುತ್ತಿರುವಂತೆಯೆ; ಗಿಡ-ಗಿಡಗಳಲ್ಲೂ, ಮರ-ಮರಗಳಲ್ಲೂ ಭಗ್ಗನೆ ಎದ್ದ ಎಳೆ ಹಸುರಿನ ಹಬ್ಬ! ನನ್ನ ಪುಟ್ಟ ಮಲ್ಲಿಗೆಬಳ್ಳಿಯ ಪ್ರತಿ ವಲ್ಲಿಯಲ್ಲೂ ಹತ್ತಾರು ಚಿಗುರುಗಳು! ಅಬ್ಬ! ನಂಬಿಕೆಯಿಡುವುದು ಹೇಗೆಂದು ಈ ಅದ್ಭುತವನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ ಕಲಿಯಬೇಕು! ಹೇಗೆ ತಿಳಿಯಿತು ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ವಸಂತ ಬರುವನೆಂದು?
