CHANDIGARH, Punjab & Haryana: Chandigarh, the capital of the northern Indian states of Punjab and Haryana, was designed by the Swiss-French modernist architect, Le Corbusier. His buildings include the Capitol Complex with its High Court, Secretariat and Legislative Assembly, as well as the giant Open Hand Monument. The nearby Rock Garden is a park featuring sculptures made of stones, recycled ceramics and industrial relics. The Open Hand Monument is a symbolic structure designed by the architect Le Corbusier and located in the Capitol Complex of the Indian city and union territory of Chandigarh. It is the emblem or symbol of the Government of Chandigarh and symbolizes "the hand to give and the hand to take; peace and prosperity, and the unity of mankind". The largest example of Le Corbusier's many Open Hand sculptures, it stands 26 metres (85 ft) high.The metal structure with vanes is 14 metres (46 ft) high, weighs 50 short tons (100,000 lb), and was designed to rotate in the wind.

Air plants! I've kept indoor plants these past four years. Before that I killed every plant I ever tried to grow. I do still maintain my black thumb for growing food... but I'm doing alright with house plants and native plants outside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Air plants are fascinating. You soak them in water every few weeks, spritz them once in a while with a mist of water, and they just live. I haven't researched about them beyond that... they are probably tropical? I don't know. But they are pretty. I've seen people mount cage sort of things on walls and then perch their air plants in them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My indoor plants make me happy. I look at them and feel calmer. I water them and they don't complain about the food (as opposed to the little people I created... they always complain about the food). I find a take a deep breath whenever I look at them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you find your plants help your mental health? What interesting plants do you have? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
