Flower & handicraft shops on Shahbagh - University road

wholesale market

Shahbagh road opposite to National Museum

Flower trade on road: About 35 traders have been plying their flower and handicraft trade on the footpath of Shahbagh, which is adorned with different kinds of home and foreign flowers like gladiolus, rose, chinabox, orchid, gipsy, marigold and tuberose. Some florists are also doing their business, encroaching on government land at the Shahbagh crossing in collusion with come city corporation officials, ward commissioners and student leaders.

The Dhaka City Corporation plans a drive to clear the footpath in front of the National Museum at Shahbagh, said a high official of the corporation’s estate department on Tuesday. When the occupiers come to know of such drives, they remove their goods and leave, and then return after the drive ends. The florists have teamed up as Shahbagh Flower Traders’ Association and seek a stay order from the court whenever the corporation initiates a drive, the official said. The vendors say that roadside shops had been mushrooming, through paying extortion money to linemen, police and local goons.

The Hindu's sacred books and traditions mention names of certain flowers associated with particular deity for offerings in ‘pujas’, such as, Laxmi, Saraswati, Ganesh, Durga, Kali, Shib, Krishna etc. without which worship remain incomplete. Some flowers are never used due to curse. Rose is not native of India as such not used in Puja. Flowers that fall to the ground are not to be offered. Selected flowers used in pujas are Tulsi (holy basel), Lotus, Bel, Joba (hibiscus), Parijat, Mallika (jesmin), Siuli, Dhatura, Kolkey, Kadamb, Polash (flame of the forest) Champa and Marigold, etc. most of which are pale yellow to red in colour. Common Marigold color ranges from lemon, yellow, bright yellow, golden to orange grow abundantly in most areas of India and very much used in making garlands, temple decoration and Pujas. It remains fresh for several days.
