On Road To Silence In Company Of Towering Trees
That's the first scene which meets the eyes when we enter inside
Baghfrom Railway Junction side. The evening was apleasantone
when we landed at Khusru Bagh. The city had huge rainfall hours
ago and so the atmosphere was filled with the scent of rain
soaked earth. These towering tall trees added a new dimensionto
the glamour of the beautifulatmosphere.
Myself In the Company Of These Tall Cute Trees!
How can one avoid spending few moments in company of these tall
trees? The trees say so many things. Just try to talk with them
and they unfold so many secrets of the nature.
The Three Sandstone Mausoleums: Symbol Of Mughal Architecture
Khusro Bagh is basicallya more than 400 years old large walled
garden that contains the tomb of Mughal Emperor Jahangir's one of
the sons Prince Khusro. PrinceKhusrodared
to revolt against his father Jahangir. He faced defeat in the
battle of Bhairowal when his army failed to tackle the huge army
of his father Jahangir. He was imprisoned and later killed on the
directions of Shah Jahan then known as Prince Khurram. There are
two other tombs one. One belongs to Khusro's mother Shah Begum
and other one belongs to Khusro's sister Sultan Nithar Begum.
It's said that Shah Begum committed suicide by eatingpoisonbeing
upset with Khusro's ongoing conflicts with his father
Greenery Everywhere: The reason why I love rains!
The place is so green. It's because it has developed into a
center that produces best qualities of mangoes and guavas. Come
summer and you find trees laden with mangoes of variousqualities.
You will also notice various types of roses here as it holds one
of the best plant nurseries of the city. Anyway, if mangoes are
on trees how can you prevent children from hitting the green
mangoes with stone? I have also done that many times caring a
damn about the owners!
Jai Bajrangbali: He also loves greenery! Yes, how can Monkey Lord
Bajranbali Baba finds a resting place inside the Khsuro Bagh.
When he is there the bhaktas (devotees) also start arriving! In

In the presence of another ancient tree!
Usually the place is bustling with activities of all sorts. This
place is hot favourite of students appearing for various
competitiveexaminations. They arrive here during early morning
hours and stay until the sun goes down. However, I manged to find
some lonely corners for myself as this one. I am a loner and such
places mired in silence are close to my heart.
My Cousin Brother Who Clicked All These Fascinating Pictures!
A wonderful person who is always the man in hurry! Despite such
busy schedule he has time for everyone. No wonder he found enough
time to roam with me in the beautiful landscape. Though he tried
his best to make me smile, it's never an easy task to teach an
old dog new tricks and so I kept flirting with seriousness in
most of the images.
On A Road To Nothingness: Nothingness Is Essence Of Life!
The man chases glory but in the end all roads that once lead to
glory lead also to the graves. The empty roads suggest the same.
A reason why I am madly in love with empty roads. Such a lovely
road that passes through such a beautiful
