This morning I visited the colourful Flower market in Mehdipatnam in Hyderabad. It was such a busy place and I did not know that flowers are in big demand in India until I went there. There were garlands of many sizes, bouquets and loose flowers in bags. Apparently, the flower market is very busy before noon. This is so because most of the flowers are highly perishable and must be sold fast before they wilt.
