I was in India in January but nowhere near you. We went to Delhi, Darjeeling, Gangtok, and then through Bhutan to Calcutta (I'm old fashioned with place names ).
We were trailblazing for Prince William and Kate
Calcutta is now Kolkata
How did it happen that your wife's birth certificate and passs port has this city's name?That's why I said I'm old fashioned with place names
We still call every place and country by their old name. Calcutta is what is printed on my wife's birth certificate and passport

Now about what you have uploaded here why should God be so unfair that you get all the flowers in the world and others get hardly any
Oh no!!! Flowers from India. I know we have flowers here but I thought they were all from your garden. I have not visited Mother Teresa's set up. You are truly blessed.Hi grouie,
Her father was working there when she was born. She also went to school there and had to learn the local language as well as English, and got her 'O' Levels in Bengali. She can not only speak but read and write Bengali. This certainly surprises the Indian restaurants when we go for a meal(they're mainly Bangladeshi) here in England .
I took that photo above in January in the flower market in Calcutta
Another use of flowers. In Mother Theresa's House
