Mumbai On A High

The Public Views of a Private Life

When the Tall Tree Speaks #ThursdayTreeLove

People who reach the top of the tree are only those who haven’t got the qualifications to detain them at the bottom.

This afternoon while visiting my tax consultant I saw this beautiful Rain Tree outside his window. It was truly a grand specimen of the Great Indian Rain Tree that rose up to the third floor of this old stone clad building in Mumbai’s original business district inside the once walled area of city known as ‘Fort’.

It brought a strange calm among the hustle and bustle in the street below

Linking this up with Parul’s photo initiative #ThursdayTreeLove where other bloggers share pictures of the trees they love.

  1. That’s a lovely capture, Sunita. I love the rain trees for the way they spread out like a giant canopy! Thankfully Bangalore abounds in these.

    1. Yes South Mumbai too . Unfortunately many of them are now really old and in danger of being trimmed following the death of a passerby who was killed by a coconut tree that fell down!
