Trees are for life

I have taken this photo from Head Shidnai, it is one and a half hour distance from Multan. Its a road side scene and when I was taking this image, beggars were all around me, asking me for money and therefore, in a very difficult situation I took this photo.

A Sacred Tree Near A Grave

It is the traditional practice of planting a tree near a grave in Pakistan. By planting a tree, it is believed that the positive energy of the loved ones lies in the trees. In my opinion, this is the only way of connecting yourself with the dead ones and with nature.

Now most of people have neglected this traditional practice and started using brick and stone for the tombs/ graves but still we can find trees near every tombs/ graves.These trees are thought as sacred and will never be cut down.

This photo has been taken by me from Sahiwal. I was just passing by this graveyard and this view fascinates me so much that I can't stop myself from taking this image. I don't know anything about this grave.

Way Of Life

This is the way of life in rural areas of Pakistan and it is beautiful in its own ways. This photo has been taken on my way to Faisalabad which is formerly known to us as Lyallpur.

This view enlighten my soul and here in this place I realized that there is always something marvelous in all things of nature. Its a daily routine of these people to sit under the shade of this mighty tree and to do their daily task under its shade.

Listen to trees, they do whisper

Trees are spiritual and it is true that they do converse with us and do tell us the tales of the ancient times. Sharing a quote that I have recently read somewhere.
"Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach.....the ancient law of life."

Writing on a tree

This tree is just near my house and we call it "Jaman ka Darakht". Its quite fascinating to see the writing on it. "Nam" or "Naam" means name in Urdu Language but I don't know what "Nams" means but I like this writing on a tree.
