Enchanted Forests

The air was heady with the Fragrance of an Aromatic Spice which is used across most cuisines in the Indian Sub Continent.

Native to India , the use of which goes back to Ancient India , Cumin ( English), Zeera ( Hindi) , Cuminum cyminum ( Scientific name) is a Herbal Plant related to Parsley.

I was fortunate to photograph a handful of Plants which had been missed by the harvesters as they were hidden within a field of  Isabgol plants ( pls see the blog titled ISABGOL) .

One thought on “FRAGRANT CUMIN

  1. Greetings in the name of our dear Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
    I am Nehru Naik, I am native of small and backward village NVK THANDA,
    Peddavoora Manadal, Nalagonda District, telagana India. I am
    born in a very poor family, my parents were daily wage labours. I
    belong to Schedule Tribe community which is most neglected community
    in the society.

    Voice calling me ” I NEED YOU MY SON”, I looked here and there but no
    one was there. I opened the BIBLE, God spoke to me through the
    scriptures, Nahum :1:15. According the Scripture I decided to search
    the Gospel to the unreached areas of our society. And started
    preaching the gospel in the year 1992 till now preached 54 villages of
    our surroundings after taking Bible Training in collage and
    established achurch, where saints are worshiping regularly.

    One day while mediating the God’s word, God spoken with me by the
    Scripture James 1:27 to care of orphan children. Hence, we have
    started small orphanage with 13.orphans by providing food, shelter,
    education.

    We request you to kindly pray for these children as they need of
    school books, bags & fees. We love you to invite you to come to our
    children home whenever you visit India.

    With much love &
    pastor.nehrunaik
