The Mehrauli flower market or phoolon ki mandi was a city landmark. It is opposite the Qutub Minar metro station in front of the Mehrauli Archeological Park nurseries.
The three main flower marketsof Fatehpuri, Mehrauli, and Connaught Place, have now been shifted to a single unit in Ghazipur, near the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border.
However on eve of Diwali I found a few vendors here selling marigold and lotus.
Selling flowers is hard work
Though it looks it, selling flowers aint childs play
A streetcar full of desires
The auspicious lotus blooms
This beautiful bouquet with crepe paper.
Since it was diwali eve the leaves were prepared for hanging too
Wherever there are crowds, there are chat vendors too!
