Couples can be seen flocked around everyday in the Garden of 5 senses. I am not against anyone’s love but it should be understood that there is a time and a place to show your love to your loved one. Every time I went their for a shoot, i couldn’t find a descent spot to set up my camera. I myself was so embarrassed to shoot amidst the public display of love. At times i wonder about the plight of the place and what would it say as any other mortal?
What would the garden say as a mortal to anyone?
The actual love: I hover among the speculations made on me about the couples that hang around me. But it’s not the only thing i should be known about! I am home to these innocents. Isn’t the love of a family, the bliss of togetherness and the joy of living together be the topic i should be talked about?
Hardwork that pays: I am the workplace of so many like him. The miniatures that they sell earns them a living. Isn’t providing them a platform should be a topic of my identity as well?
Fusion of colors: I am a display of too many colors. The flowers breed and become a center of attraction at many events. They add to the beauty of many homes and their fragrance rejuvenates many hearts. Shouldn’t this beauty be a part of my identity?
Memory spot: I witness some enthralling photographs. People come, capture and take back some colorful moments of their lives. Isn’t it less than any other topic to be talked about these days?
A play in dark: From sports to adventure, I provide experiences to everyone. Yet am known for the love making around me.
A request: I know, a dirty fish spoils the whole pond. I too feel helpless when I see all this around me. Even though I can’t do anything about it, all I can do is request everyone to know me for the good and not the bad!
