I had written about this colossus last year. But these are its flowers & remember flowering happens only once in seven years !

Infact many years back when i used to work in the villages in Thane district, while filling up some forms for an old person, i had to ask him what is your age ?

He replied by saying: i do not remember my age but i’ve seen Kaarvi flowering eight times !!

I did not understand what he meant, then someone explained to me that he does not remember his age, but he remembers how many times he has seen Kaarvi flowering & kaarvi flowers only once in 7 years.

Oh ! so 7 times 8 = 56 !

‘Ole man’s age is 56 !

Is there anything about this number 7, it keeps following me !
