Shot at Kamat Lokaruchi, Mysore Road. 🙂
I fell in love with the bright red and the plait shape of this flower the moment I saw it for the first time, years ago, at someone’s place in Chennai. Our host told us the flower is called ‘Bride’s Plait’, which I think is an apt and very pretty name for it. I tried searching for the flower’s name on the internet, but didn’t find any mention anywhere. I have always referred to it as ‘the plait flower’ since.
If anyone knows what this plant/flower is called, please do enlighten me!
