The Nimhans Road

Its a nice place to pass on your way to college everyday.
Wide, bright, full of trees and rustic somehow. I like.

Right now the pavements on the sides are carpetted with yellow flowers. It looks amazing. Really does.
Most of the trees on this road are flower-bearing ones. Purple, pink and yellow this road was a couple of weeks ago.

During the night however, things are slightly different. There are no street lights, or if there are, the trees prevent much of the light from making its way down to you. Its then that you remember that this road houses a mental hospital. Its gloomy, quiet and slightly scary.

During the day it feels like a research institute. A place of learning, of science.
At night it feels like a scene from a horror movie.
Context, is so important.
