Tree Trunk

Life is weird... you see,
when love for something grows stronger and deeper, its a time to quit. Its hard to explain but it is a fact.

I can't imagine, why these leaves are doing here, why they prefer this place, why not the other branches of the tree?

May be to give it a natural look.

On road - Shisham trees.

Shisham or tally trees along the roadsides near Burewalla. As the road continues, they also move on but still are vanishing in large number from the country due to die back disease of Sisso. Mostly it occurred in those trees planted near the cultivated fields or along the roadsides or highways where soil is frequently dug up for repairing of the roads. Shisham trees almost vanished from the cities. Much less efforts have been done to save them.

But hope lives on after seeing these wonderful trees growing perfectly.

Photos of grand old banyan tree

I am sharing these photos of bohr tree after receiving permission from the Lahore Chitrkar's fan site in facebook. This grand Borh tree is in Abal Mori, Kot momin close to Sargodha.

The culture of respecting and worshiping trees goes back to the earliest Indus valley civilization. That custom lives on and even today,trees like the peepal, neem and banyan tree for instance, are considered sacred and worshipped. Cutting of trees is considered a sin even today. The practice of planting a tree near a grave have helped save these trees from vanishing. By planting they believed in the continuity of the positive energy of the loved ones in the trees and sharing this energy with all living beings. This has been one of the ways of connecting oneself with the dead ones and with nature.

The myth related to the tree stops people from taking wood from the vicinity as bad omen, so the tree stands grand.
