flowers and Thorns

This is the first pic I took on my way to Badrinath.(somewhere near Kannauj)







This bush is called BICHHUGHAS and found in Uttranchal in abundance.Just a touch is enough to give you electric current and pain for hours.

You had been to Badrinath. Lucky enough. :D

Wow! Sunflowers. And a khatiya underneath of the tree. Great. :)

And the BICHHUGHAS !!!! I'm hearing this name the first time. But the bush seems to be "Sisnu" which is called Nettle. Is this so?

We heard that in old days teacher used to beat with it. And that's making it wet.

And in mountain people eat is as vegetables too. I heard it's very tasty but never ate so far. And you might surprise to know that there are many wearing items - shirts, skirts, tops, scarves, trousers etc made out of the fiber of nettle. And they are easily available in Nepal. :D. I've not tried but I was thinking to buy one since long. :)
