Fume-and-filth Ranchi will soon bare its rosy heart in front of its residents.
The lawns of Raj Bhavan — home to the First Citizen of Jharkhand Governor Syed Ahmed — will host a two-day rose show from January 12 at Birsa Mandap.
The rose show, the first of its kind being hosted by Raj Bhavan, will be organised in association with the Birsa Agriculture University, National Horticulture Mission, Horticulture Mission, Horticulture and Agro-Forestry Project, Palamdu and the Rose Society of Ranchi.
According to details released, the show will invite entries in two categories — individual and institutional — with each entry being judged on a total of 100 marks.
Aditya Swarup, the principal secretary to the Governor, has already sent out advertisements in various local dailies in this regard besides uploading details of the competition on the Raj Bhavan website.
Each category will have 19 sub-sections with the roses being judged on six qualities — size, colour, form, substance, foliage and stem.
The show will be open for public viewing from 10am to 7pm, with January 12 being set as the last day for receiving entries.
