Dear Anonymous,
Most of the Gulabs I found in Canada don't spread 'mehak'. It is so strange. I am not a botanist, may be these are different breeds. Or may be it is the environment/soil.. or even an outcome of a culture which relies on perfume industry rich in CFC' s.
Thanks for your visit and comments.

Sab toh sohna expression lagga mainu "rukhi rooh" wala. Rooh Honi ta "bhukhi" chahidi si but ho gayee "Rukhi". Nicely used imagery and well expressed.

Thanks for figuring out the right word and need. Unjh Bhukhhi hee hai rooh, however I thought it is important to introspect and as a poet make myself a patar/center piece of this conversation!
Regards

Well said regarding roses..........I remember the big rose plant we had in our house in India at one time, having more than 50 roses at a time and was spreading the fragrance all around and you know that also had a history as it was an offspring of the plant planted my dad and how it moved from place to place .........I can still feel the texture of those roses and enjoy its fragrance……….now I have 6 bog rose bushes (as we call them here in Canada) with bigger beautiful roses in different colors but no fragrance ..............I am never attracted to them just pass by them everyday to make sure they stay alive and not look ugly so……..I hope to be able to grow the same rose here one day ……so far I failed………so are we......because my parents tell me i used to make everybody laugh.....
