It started 3years back to celebrate, but then I finally managed to attend the 3rd India International cherry blossom festival this year.

And looking at these photos, you'll agree - such beauty definitely deserves to be celebrated. 

The festival that first started in 2016 also hosts fashion shows and rock concerts, along with presenting stalls that exhibit the region's local food and craft. 

But the subject of the festival - the beautiful cherry blossoms - are what make for a breathtaking view indeed. 

No matter how hard we try, man can never recreate the beauty that exists in nature. 

This is definitely nature at its best. We humans don't deserve such wonders. 

And here I am, looking at the fake flowers on my desk, imagining about a vacation I always think I deserve.
