Singapore Rhododendron - Melastoma malabathricum

Though named the Singapore Rhododendron, this flower also thrives in Madagascar and is present all the way to India and Australia. It is a flower that we see very often in our parks and nature reserves always with flowers, buds, fruits and insects buzzing round it or birds feeding on the fruit. When you see so much of the same thing you tend not to give it much attention but when you see it while walking around in the city, the appearance of these flowers became a wonderfully refreshing sight. It would be like seeing them for the first time in a long, long while.
