Oh My God! Palash flower is so dangerous!In my locality, Palash flower (Butea monosperma) can be seen in abundance. This flower is readily available near my office also. This beautiful red-coloured and orange-coloured flower declares the arrival of the spring. It causes a colour riot in our locality and also near my office.
However, I didn't know that Palash flower can be very dangerous also. It is almost as dangerous as banana peel. Let me explain. We have been experiencing light to medium drizzle in Delhi during last two days. As a result, many Palash flowers have fallen below. The rain and the Palash flowers on the earth have become a very dangerous combination. The places where Palash flowers fall have become very slippery.
Day before yesterday, I was late for office. I was in a hurry and was walking very fast. Suddenly my foot fell on the fallen Palash flowers and I slipped. I was fortunate that I was not hurt. I immediately remembered that in 1981, my father fell on a banana peel and his left knee was broken into nine pieces.
Who knew that Palash flowers would be dangerous like banana peels.
