I guess the fascination started when I used to travel from Guwahati to Dibrugarh & back alone by those day service buses. I had nothing else to do besides counting the tress I crossed by. What started as a means to “time pass” has become a fascination. Now whenever I travel somewhere by bus , train or car rather than talking to the co passengers I prefer watching the trees . Different shapes and different sizes. Some trees full of green leaves some without a single leaf.
One tree which caught my eyes was in
There was another one . A big neem tree right in the middle of a paddy field. That was a warm afternoon . Somewhere along the road from Ajanta caves till Manmad railway station the big neem tree was standing as if it was announcing “ I am the monarch of all I survey….!!’” Surprisingly there was not a single tree which can match the grandeur of the Neem tree in the paddy field. It was indeed the Monarch.!
Then there was a big Gulmohor tree right across the road in front of the rented house in
& now there are trees around when I look out of my office window. Trees of different shapes and sizes. & of course different colours. Some have leaves which are dark & some which have leaves which are one shade lighter.
Trees continue to fascinate me.
