Floral Culture In India

In India, flowers are part and parcel of our lives from birth to death - as offerings, as blessings, as adornment, as medicine, as food and also as a sign of love and sharing. Over the years, with the critical readings of fragrances, we have found how aromas can evoke memory, how they are responded to by different genders and how floral perfumes also become mediators of desire and pleasure. At this online talk #FlowerPower, art historian Dr Alka Pande explores the floral essence and provides new perceptions and interpretations of flowers.
