I think I am too tired and so I will take some leave. Tomorrow some
friends (Aassistant Professors) from Texas are coming and with them I
would be leaving for field work to Gori Valley hence I may not be able
to contribute much to the community. I would be back on 24th but would
be too busy with work till 31st. Hence apologies for being absent.
For the time being you can enjoy some ornamental orchid pics which I
took at the National Orchid Conference held at Almora. These flowers
were from Mr. U.C.Pradhan's private nursery in Kalimpong. He had
always been a great help to me since 2003, infact tomorrow's visit of
friends and trip to Gori Valley is result of his efforts, and hence I
dedicate all these pictures to him although he is not a part of this
group, so he cant see these but he has already seen those on my
Hope you will enjoy.

To your surprise some of these hybrids are his own and his wife's
creations through hybridization. He also happens to be the author of
two volume book INDIAN ORCHIDS and is Chairperson of IUCN, SSC, Orchid
Specialist Group for South Asia and one of the most modest person I
have ever met in my life along with my boss Dr. Rawat.

Please dont mind if I choke up your inboxes!!!! that is not my intention.

Agreed with Garg ji.

In our great country universities give Doctorate to Amitabh and Shahrukh and also corrupt politicians twice or thrice but never think of honoring great people like Mr.Pradhan. What a shame---

We will wait for your early return Pankaj Ji.

No the Blue Vanda is not the one listed in Schedule VI, its a hybrid.
Blue vanda has long been used especially for its colour for
hybridization purpose.
