Ayudha Pooja 2018 Special - 8 Plantations at the backside of Vidyapeetha Indira Canteen
The spot I chose today is the backside of Vidyapeetha Indira Canteen, by the time I was done with all 8 plantations and watering, it was quite a night, but no problem, the place is well lit, I was least worried about snakes in the weeds jungle, which I guess I myself will clear one day, leaving them to the BBMP folks to remove is a bit of risk, as they could pull of the plantations too as a weed.
As this place is well lit, and is visible on both the sides, from here and down below, when it flowers, the scene is going to be spectacular, not just during the day, but also in the night, thanks to generous lighting here.
It is possible that I can add another approx. 10 plantations in this area, let us see some other day when our jungle at home yields sufficient cuttings.

As I was done here, I went to the Indira Canteen taps for additional water. Caught up with my friends there, especially the lady out there who tends to the garden there, wanted to say hello to the plants planted there, they are all surviving, but have been bit slow in sprouting.
Here are their photos, and by one of the plants, their care taker is hugging them with all the love she has for them!
I believe in every day being a festival, yet this year I saw a need to have the ayudha pooja day to be special this way, glad it went well, a day well spent! Look forward to a bigger victory tomorrow, the day of victory towards light away from darkness, the day of Vijaya Dashami!
Wishing you great Vijay Dashami tomorrow,
