New Delhi, ANI. The guidelines for corona infection have worked as a lifeline for Brahmakamal, which augurs well for this rare species. The effect of the lockdown is also seen on Brahma Kamal, who is called the King of the Himalayan flowers. This flower, which blooms only once a year, is now spreading its fragrance even in the month of October. August is the right time for the blooming of Brahma Lotus. Experts are also surprised to see this thing. It is believed that this may have happened due to less tourist penetration and less pollution. This flower blooming on the ground has a religious and medicinal feature.
Corona period became a life donation for Brahma Kamal
In the era of Corona epidemic, thousands of Brahmakamal bloomed in Uttarakhand’s Ghee Vinayak, Nandikund Pandavasera due to lack of movement of people. Tourists who went on trekking broke Brahmakamal before it matured, which prevented its seeds from spreading. This time the flower has fully ripened, and its seed is expected to increase the yield of Brahmakamal next year. Due to over-exploitation of pilgrims, it has reached the verge of extinction.
