Most Common Weeds and Wild Grasses in Karnataka, India

 Weeds are plants in the wrong place. They are unwanted in human-controlled settings, such as farm fields and gardens. Interestingly, a weed in one context is not a weed in another context. Many plants that people widely regard as weeds also are intentionally grown in gardens and other cultivated settings, in which case they are sometimes called beneficial weeds

Walking around in urban gardens and country roads, I am surprised by mainly by the beauty of many plants and flowers we call as weeds, secondly I am taken aback by the survival instinct and resilience of such plants. With nobody caring for they still grow in due session and flower and propagate. At times we find them growing even through cracks in the concrete and stones. The utilitarian humanity often do not care about plants and flowers that are not profitable. 

As I walked along I photographed them. In photographs they get an identity and show forth their real beauty. Knowing a plant by its name is like knowing a person by his/her name. Next time we see them we feel related and close. And, of course, we would think twice before destroying them purposelessly.
