Trip to Botanic Paradise

Trip to Botanic Paradise

The Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanical Garden is one of the largest floral reserves in the world. It is the home to over a thousand species of trees and the Great Banyan tree. Our school had decided on an educational trip to the Botanical Garden for class IX. When the notice came in, we all were overjoyed. The main objective of this trip was a social science project. For this we had to take photographs of different species of trees and bind the pictures into an album. We were thus allowed to carry our cameras or mobile phones along with us.

It was a cold Monday morning. We all were very excited and ready to go to the Botanical Garden. We boarded the bus from school around10 a.m. The Botanical Garden is situated on the banks of the Ganges. It took us about an hour to reach there. It was only after our accompanying teacher collected our passes, we could see the glorious floral heritage left behind by the Englishmen, past the gate. The place was huge and had a great floral diversity. Everyone instantly took their cameras and mobiles out and started taking photographs. I myself had my grand time taking photographs of the diverse varieties of trees. The scenic greenery of the place was enough to amaze me. The pollution free environment made me relax and calm myself from the daily busy lives we lead in the cities. As we moved on, we saw and got to know about different species of trees. Our teachers also helped us recognizing different trees. It was amazing to see such a diverse variety of trees in one place and being maintained so well. Soon it was time to say adieu to the place and return back to our school. At around 12 p.m. we reached the main gate and boarded our bus.

During the time we were there, we had lots of fun and were happy to have visited the place. The place surely is a Botanic Paradise.
