The Krishnachuras are here, and they are lovely

Red and orange are beckoning hearts at the streets at the eleventh hour of Baishakh as the Krishnachuras are starting to bloom with all its vigour.

It is nearing Jaishtha in Bangla calendar, the second month of summer; and it is now the bloom of spring chooses to unravel itself.

The bloom is still young now at Dhaka University, but has indeed touched all the Krishnachura trees at campus and missed not one.

Professor Abdul Aziz of Dhaka University’s Botany department said Krishnachuras are yet to take the flamboyant look due to heavy rain this year.

“It blooms well normally when the temperature is very high and the humidity is relatively low,’’ he said.

For the past few years, Krishnachuras in Dhaka have been showing a late bloom - after the first few swathes of rain in monsoon. But this time, they are here relatively early.

However, this April had already shown the highest amount of rainfall for a long time, which was unusual, according to Bangladesh Meteorological Department.
