Sankraman - Songkran

 Today, the 14th of April is a very special day to Hindus and Buddhists. Many Hindus celebrate it as the New Year's Day. It is special day in Thailand and Cambodia too, where they call it Songkran.

 This is the season for flowers. In Kerala, this day is celerated as Vishu , and in the state of Assam, it is the Bihu festival.
The Amaltas  Cassia is blooming profusely everywhere, adding to the air of festivities.

My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday.
