We all have some level of craziness in us; some are crazy for roads, others for prosperity, but with the growing intellect in the young generation, one more thing is finding a fill in the crazy zone. It’s the craziness of green.
Just as there are pet parents obsessed with their four-legged babies, now we find countless individuals smitten with their leafy, green babies. It’s a delightful shift, where the love for plants takes center stage, emphasizing the beauty of living green.
One such proud plant mom is Dr. Aditi R. Khandelwal, who has a pile of degrees but whose true calling was found among the greens of her garden. Aditi’s story is one such success story filled with passion, obsession, hard work, and determination.
Meet the incredible Green Lady, a professor by profession with dual post-graduate degrees, a prestigious doctorate, and a diploma holder in various fields. A published book writer and more degrees are in the making.
But wait, there’s more! She’s also a devoted mother of two and a daughter-in-law managing a bustling Indian joint family.
On top of that, she’s a social media influencer. And if that weren’t enough, she has now embarked on her latest endeavor: Flora Frenzy, her very own boutique garden. Take a moment to catch your breath and marvel at this awe-inspiring, multitasking woman entrepreneur we have before us.
Flora Frenzy and The Lover
Aditi is an engaging YouTuber, but not your usual YouTuber who is all about just giving information about plantations and gardening. She is a lady full of fields and a smile, and she shows the joys of gardening through her vibrant personality.
It is hard to describe in words how she is different from others. She has a down-to-earth nature, an easy-on-the-eye demeanor, a broad natural smile, a warm nature, and creativity that oozes with confidence.
And yes, she is a little eccentric. She loves plants as if she were a lover—obsessed and too involved.
I would say, “I have a passion for gardening; I simply love it. I believe that plants are like our close ones, and you should spend time with them. You should sit together, have tea with them, talk to them and understand their emotions. Only then do they grow.”
From An Extraordinary Scholar To An Exceptional Entrepreneur
Dr. Aditi is the epitome of the new India vibe! She comes from a family of bureaucrats with deep roots in traditional village life. She used to visit her hometown as a child, where she would observe how her parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles tried their hands at farming, kitchen gardening, and terrace gardening.
She credits her childhood experiences with the soil and sun as the driving force behind her love and interest in gardening and starting a unique venture called Flora Frenzy.
Gardening Is Her Meditation, So Can Be For All Of Us
Even with so many things already going on in her life, she often found relief sitting in her garden. Even when life was a list of “to-dos,” she would still find some time here and there to plant a sapling or till the soil of her garden as a form of meditation.
It was during the monstrous Corona lockdown that she had enough time to spend on her hobby of gardening. She started planting and experimenting with her gardening skills by growing seasonal vegetables, flowers, decorative plants, and a kitchen garden in her house.
“I loved it so much ki maine apne ghar par jo jagah mili waha plants grow kr diye the, and I started spending an abundance of time with them. In fact, there was a point when my whole family was just tired of watching me get a new plant every now and then.
But it was this deewangi of Aditi that led her to become an entrepreneur and give birth to Flora Frenzy. As there is a dialogue in Shahrukh Khan’s movie called “Om Shanti Om, “Agar kisi cheez ko sacche dil se chaaho to puri kayanat usey tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai.”
In a fascinating turn of events, the renowned newspaper “Rajasthan Patrika” approached Dr. Khandelwal to feature her in a video showcasing her profound love for plants and gardening. It was a defining moment for her.
Inspired and driven, she decided to embark on a new journey, giving flight to her hobbies and launching her very own YouTube channel. Aptly named “Flora Frenzy,’ meaning crazy for flowers or plants, it perfectly captures her unwavering enthusiasm and sheer devotion to the world of plants.
Flora Frenzy is an online platform with a YouTube channel and an e-commerce platform where she sells handcrafted miniatures, plants, seeds, house and garden decorative plants, and much more.
No Excuses Are Enough Excuses
How many hats do you wear? Ask this lady this question, and her reply, with a heartwarming smile, will inspire you. Despite having a full-time job and a family to take care of, she is an emerging woman entrepreneur, but all these burdens don’t tire her down but rather make her more energetic.
Just like the enchanting fragrance of a flower, Aditi’s dedicated efforts have sparked a wave of green babies among her family members, inspiring them to join in her endeavor. Aditi revealed that despite her well-planned schedule, she can’t possibly dedicate enough time to all the exhibitions Flora Frenzy participates in.
That’s where her amazing in-laws, mother, father, uncles, and numerous other family members step in, tirelessly supporting her to fulfill the dream of making Flora Frenzy a success. Together, they make the journey even more beautiful.
Dr. Aditi R. Khandelwal has set her sights on a noble mission: to empower people to create their own green havens, no matter how small their living spaces may be.
With her vast knowledge of plant species that thrive in even the tiniest nooks, like kitchen windows, interiors of rooms, or sun-deprived spots, she aims to cater to a specific audience: Individuals aged 20 to 45 and beyond who yearn to reconnect with nature.
Aditi recognises their time and space constraints and thus dedicates her efforts, expertise, by sharing tips on how to make gardening easy and accessible for all by sharing gardening tips on Flora Frenzy.
Aditi is on a mission to establish a distinctive market for plants as gifts. She firmly believes that plants are equally incredible as presents, as they possess longevity and carry a special message on behalf of the giver.
