Description

This book is about the abiding bond that exists between trees and everyday life in India: especially between sacred trees and everyday life. The bond has always been there. As it subsists today, it may not be so easily visible, for one’s attention is diverted by other things, and the air in any case is filled with too much noise, a surfeit of human greed. But the bond is there: this book is an attempt to draw attention to its embedded existence.

In the photographs in this book, and the epigraphs that accompany them, the reader will discover, behind seemingly simple sights and words, thoughts that move and ideas that invite us to reflect.

REVIEW

Perceiving that the trees served as umbrellas by spreading their shade in the scorching heat of the summer sun, Krishna addressed to his cowherd friends, the residents of Vraja:

Have a look at these great blessed souls who live only for the welfare of others, and themselves undergo (for others) the severity of stormy winds, heavy showers, summer heat and snow, and save them off from us.
-Bhagavata Purana
