As it was a Sunday when I visited so it was a bit crowded. It was a peaceful morning to spend time in this garden. Birds were chirping and blowing air makes it much pleasing. It’s a nice feeling to keep in touch with this natural fascination. There were many Black Plum (Jamun) trees so some kids were throwing pebbles to get some jamun. As its a widespread garden, some cricket players come here and play in the morning. the sound of those shouting players may captivate urge to play with them.
