Mogra, also known as Arabian jasmine, is a prized flower for its sweet fragrance and shelf-life. The flowers are not only offered in religious abodes in India but also adorned by the ladies in their hair for their long-lasting aroma. Due to its high demand, mogra is planted in large farms in Jawhar villages. Lots of workers wake up in the dawn to pick the flower buds. Their pickings are then weighed and they are paid accordingly. The flowers are then carefully packaged and transported from the remote villages by motorbikes, buses, trains and finally to the huge Dadar flower market, in Mumbai.
