For the Indian Weavers' cause

Kalpana Sharma has written so eloquently on the woes of India's weaver community. See Disappearing warp and weft.
It made me wonder - All our celebrities could easily take up this cause. For example - they could sport the decent sari, or a suitable Indian handloom garment, in international forums, instead of aping the West in the kind of clothes they choose to wear. (Yes, like Aishwarya Rai and her ilk at the Ocsars)

Delhi's Garden Tourism Festival

I have always felt that Delhi looks drab in winter, the leaves in the trees looking grey and blending with the lifeless concrete around. However you can discover pockets of plant life in Lutyen's Delhi and within parks and well-maintained campuses.
The Garden of Five Senses is a park that you can escape into, bang in the middle of the city, near the Qutub Minar.
We were lucky to catch glimpses of the Garden Tourism Festival (3rd weekend of Feb every year).
Any idea of the names of the flowers above?
