|I had never before looked Tulsi this much close. With the macro photography I was simply amazed to see the beauty of the tiny flowers of Tulsi. There is two types of Tulsi, the photo is perhaps of hybrid Tulsi.|
More about Tulsi From Wikipedia :
“Known as Tulasi (alternate spelling Tulsi) in India it is an important symbol in many Hindu religious traditions which link the plant with the Goddess figure described in the Puranas. The name “Tulasi” in Sanskrit means “the incomparable one”. The Tulasi plant is known in India in two forms - dark or Shyama (Krishna) Tulasi and light or Rama Tulasi. The former possesses greater medicinal value and is commonly used for worship.
Tulasi has also been used for thousands of years as a prime herb in Ayurvedic treatment, for its diverse healing properties. It is mentioned by Charaka in the Charaka Samhita, the central teaching of Ayurvedic medicine, and in the Rigveda. Tulasi is considered to be an adaptogen, balancing different processes in the body, and helpful for adapting to stress.  Marked by its strong aroma and astringent taste, it is regarded as a kind of “elixir of life” and believed to promote longevity.”

Beside I like the picture (it's all purple and oh I love purple!) but I also like your comments. They are simple and useful.

a very interesting and exciting shot of the basil. Beautiful purple against the blrry background make you shot lively and briliant.
The diagonal composition is also very pleasant.
