Fallen yet beautiful


I have no idea wat this flower's called but love its fiery colour nonetheless. An attention 'receiving' flower I'd say! Its quite ubiquitous around Delhi. This one's taken from the Society where I live.

It's called Palash, I believe. I think its more commonly seen in the older parks n neighborhoods.

Yes, it seems like Palash flower as rightly noted by Lalit. esp. if you found it in Delhi. One flower can take me back in time. My Masi's place in Rajendra Nagar used to have these everywhere... :)
