Why This Book? This book is about idea, visualization, concept, plan, execution, maintenance and public benefits. There existed a barren land adjacent to the main administration building, which had been used as a disposing yard for anything imaginable. A very few people wondered on this and it occurred to them that something to be done as it is a prime plot at the entrance to an institution of national importance. There born the idea of a garden of roses. It was not about this idea are how much it would cost to execute it or the availability of resources at disposal. It is about its relevance to the field of operation in which the institution was in. Here comes the statesmanship of the leader managers in making this into a reality. A dedicated and passionate team did execute this project to the dot and sustained it. This garden of roses with 307 rose plants with 61 varieties of roses are being maintained in top condition for since its creation for more than a decade. As an avid observer and a person who is involved in gardening and landscaping, I can vouch for this rose garden as one of the best in this part of India, if not in India as a whole. The work of maintenance is to be one as a clock work, sticking to meticulous seasonal schedules to optimize the annual results, scrupulously. As a partner in this whole project since its inception, I was at loss to know the names of the rose variety which is blooming. It was not of much use talking to the well experienced gardeners available nearby are those with whom I was in contact. I was not able to identify, even a single rose flower. Taking recourse to innumerable books and internet sources put me into much discomfort than resulting in any revelation. This predicament remains so till date. It was a tedious work of not researching but searching for the names of roses as roses comes from different cultivars, geographies and through varieties of development stages from innumerable developers. Also, it was astonishing to find that there were thousands of rose names and indeed thousands of varieties of roses.


In fact, what I have attempted to do is to identify the roses in the garden with their name, which I had searched through books, gardeners, experts, onlookers and Internet. I believe, I have reasonably succeeded in my endeavour. I would like to state clearly that I had no intention nor the competency to write on, how to cultivate rose or how to take care individual rose varieties nor in developing new roses. This book is intended to be a guide to rose enthusiasts and visitors of this garden to know what they are looking at and give a visual treat of the roses one can see there. As a student of nature, I find roses impressionistic as they come in such varieties, developed innumerable varieties and the fascination of human kind in this king of flowers. Last but not the least, I take pride in being part of the team which made this garden possible, with gratitude to the number of individuals who had and has been contributing in making this sustain. The photographs are shown here in the sequence of their physical location as identified by the gardener to enable the visitor to walk through the garden. All the photographs were taken by the author using his OnePlus 6T (Model ONEPLUS A6010) mobile phone camera during the flowering season of 2019-2020 and the photograph of the author by K. Jayashree. Hope these photographs makes one interested in not only knowing the names of roses in the garden, but visiting the garden in person.
