Butterfly Days

Post-monsoon is the best time to see butterflies!


Here are some butterfly warriors.


Some scarred, with narrow escapes;

Others newly emerged, still in a daze–

All trying to get by in the city,

Splashing the air with their beauty.

“Just living is not enough. We also need sunshine, freedom, a little flower.”


To many more butterfly days!
