Siliguri (West Bengal), Feb.10 ANI | 8 months ago

A flower show in Siliguri, West Bengal, left visitors spellbound over the weekend, both in terms of the range of colour as well as fragrance.

General Secretary of the Siliguri Horticulture Society, Sumit Sen, said the organisers are keen to provide marketing support to those who join this sector as employees.

"There is hardly any flower market in Siliguri, we are working hard towards it. If the horticultural department takes a strong grip in the market, we would request all unemployed persons to come and join the sector. We, along with the National Horticulture Commission would also help them address their problems if they face any, while in this sector. There is a lot of scope of earning money in this sector," said Sen.

There are atleast 90 stalls showcasing a vast variety of flowers from different parts of the province and also from the country's northeast region. They range from special orchids of Sikkim to the Cactii of Kalimpong,to name a few. Gerbera, seasonal flowers and different coloured roses also seemed to be attracting the visitors' attention.

An excited visitor, after witnessing the beauty and elegance of the flowers, shared her experience and summed up the thoughts of others at the show.

"It is wonderful here, there are big as well as small flowers. People of all age groups are swarming here like bumblebees upon the flowers," said Kiran.

The programme is in its 29th edition this year. It is being organised by the Siliguri Horticulture Society and the provincial government. This fair is held every year and attracts alarge number of visitors.
