India: Flower boards greet G20 delegates

Hundreds of NDMC workers began the process of installing floral boards at Lodhi Garden, Talkatora Garden, Purana Qila, and Safdarjung madrasa nurseries.

With the last leg of preparations underway in Lutyens' Delhi before the arrival of delegates for the G20 Summit, NDMC's horticulture staff is working meticulously to beautify the area. In all, 20 colorful flower boards will be placed at key intersections and prominent locations on the evening of September 8, according to officials. They will all display the G20 logo and slogan, 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam - One Earth, One Family, One Future.'

Moreover, 1,000 trees in areas to be visited by the guests will be decorated with flowers for the main G20 events, said NDMC vice-chairman Satish Upadhyay. Additionally, 25 flower fountains will be prepared at busy roundabouts and junctions.

"The staff printed the G20 logo and other messages on thermocol boards on September 7. The next morning, the process of putting flowers on these boards will start, so these will be fresh till Sunday, September 10. NDMC has ordered a variety of flowers in bulk. We will also use marigold strings for creating fountains and wrapping branches of 1,000 trees," Upadhyay said. Trees at Akbar Road, Sardar Patel Marg, C-Hexagon, Shantipath, near PM House, Mother Teresa Crescent, and Windsor Place will be decorated with flowers, such as marigolds, gomphrena, chrysanthemum, asparagus, daisy, green leaves of Ashoka trees, among others.
