The Great Banyan Story
I was away from my blog for long four months and I finally did break the silence on 27th April! Each day I was postponing to write and even if I wrote I was reluctant to post. I was fully occupied by thoughts and missed sharing my stories. And finally I am here and need to be hooked here for the coming days. I don't want to be anymore away from blogging!
Yesterday when I saw a banyan tree, I thought of sharing this post.
Unlike my past New Year celebrations which was normally celebrated with my family or colleagues, this New Year started from near a banyan tree in Kochi, far away from my home town, with some new acquaintances. I can't say it was great but as I said it was way too different; the people, the attitude, the mystery, the odd feeling, the sea, the crowd and everything. Though I was trying to create smile on my face, I was going through pain and dilemma. I didn't know what to do but I was not ready to lose. I fought not only with my emotions but with others emotions too.
What I loved the most was the banyan tree which looked at me as if it has a treasury of tales to be told. Would you believe if I say I have found stories from the laps of trees? But this banyan didn't tell me any tale. May be because it could sense my mood which humans couldn't.
And so I revisited the place again few days after. This time the tree greeted with a smile! Trees watch us, greet us and listen to us! Why don't we do it back? - I wonder!
Sharing here the pictures. Look at those long strong roots similar to that shown in Bahubali! Some children from our group even tried swinging holding on the hanging roots!
