Delhi is eagerly awaiting rains but in other parts of India, specially in the Sahyadri (Maharashtra's name for Western Ghats), the monsoon has already arrived. In the jungles of central India, in the Madhya Pradesh, the green movement has already started. And the entire nature has blossomed with joy at the bounty of raindrops.

This photo reminds me of the best of times I spent in the western ghats specially during the rainy season.

A common site at all hilly terrains in rains is the abundance of ferns. The small shapely leaves, almost following a neat pattern, and almost in a bunch. Possibly, the reason why they are attractive to a camera person too.
|What a pattern on a rock ...|
And if the plants and trees and shrubs are displaying the grandeur, how can the oldest form - the rocks be behind. Don't know why, but this kind of pattern, one can actually miss in stark summers or foggy winters. But washed clean, these are prominently visible in rains. Suspect this is some volcanic rock formation, or may be, some formation of immense geological importance.
And who can forget this small wonders. A berry, a mohua flower. All with their unique properties, contributing to the lively jungle ecology.
