Hi, welcome to my blog, the Flowers of Indus Valley! I created this blog on 1st January, 2013. Thanks to Google for providing me such a wonderful platform. I have a variety of topics on my blog:

Indian History: You can learn some of the interesting events in Indian history here. I am mainly referring the book "The History of India, as Told by Its Own Historians. The Muhammadan Period" by H. M. Elliot, to write history posts. It is sad to say that there are not much historical records about the Hindu Rajputs.

Flower Pictures: Not just because I have a BSc in Botany, I am very much interested in gardening. Since my childhood I have always loved flowers and pets. We mainly have Coconut trees, Banana plants, Mango trees and Areca nut palms on our land. There are some garden plants too. I would like to share my garden's pictures with you. It could be useful for anyone interested in plants and wish to know their botanical names.

Blogger Tips: I have done a basic course in web designing. I have some tips for you to make your blog load faster as well as to beautify your Blogger blog.

This blog can be best viewed on Chrome. Hope you enjoy reading my blog! Have any suggestions or want to advertise here? Please feel free to contact me at anjanaparadise@gmail.com.
