Common Flowers Of India
Common Flowers Of India
Description
Preface

Our forests are very rich in plant wealth, many of which grow around human settlements. Among these a few are ornamental flowers with a diversity of form, size and colour. However, most people are unaware of their names, importance and growing practices.

The present book is written on a need-based request from the Director of Publications Division, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, New Delhi assigning this responsibility to the scientists of Botanical Survey of India.

The work highlights 150 common plants, both indigenous to India and exotics, which are popular and grown for their flowers,. These are dealt with under 51 titles giving their Indian and common names, scientific names, family, etymology, native home, habitat and a brief description of their interesting features, flowering and fruiting period, mode of propagation, their cultural aspects and brief economic uses besides ornamental importance. Photographs are given for their easy identification. List of scientific, common and Indian names and a glossary of technical terms used are appended at the end.

We hope the present book "Common Flowers of India" will serve the need of plant lovers, particularly children and teenagers who require a better understanding and knowledge of their surroundings. This will also be useful as a manual for their cultivation of flowers. Our present endeavour will be compensated if readers are benefited by this attempt.

The authors wish to record their thanks to Sarvasree Subash Chandra Ghosh, Sr. Photographer; Amar Mondal, Photographer; Giridhari Lal Saha, Sr. Artist; Arup Kumar Banerjee, Botanist (Horticulture); Aloke Bhattacharjee, Curator; Saibal Basu, Botanical Assistant; Liyaquat Ali Laskar, Sr. Head Mali; Anjan Ghosh, Garden Attendant and other colleagues of Botanial Survey of India for their various help.

On of us (DSP) is grateful to Dr. L. K. Banerjee and Shri. H. J. Chowdhery, Joint directors of Botanical Survey of India for rendering facilities.

Sri Dulal Chandra Chakravorty, Stenographer of BSI deserves our thanks for meticulously typing the manuscript.

We are grateful to the authorities of Agri-Horticultural Society, Alipore and Victoria Memorial Garden and a few local nurseries and amateurs of Kolkata/Howrah for their kind permission to photograph some plants.

Finally the authors record their gratefulness to the Director, Joint Director and all other officers and staff members of Publications Division of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, New Delhi for publication of this book.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
