When the tree grows taller than a skyscraper #ThursdayTreeLove

Once upon a time the trees used to dwarf the bungalows that dotted this area. Alas today the skyscrapers not only outnumber the trees but also tower over them .

But life is all about perspective and it's strange how this tree seems to be of the same height as the newest skyscraper coming up on the skyline .

Linking this post with Parul's #ThursdayTreeLove .

Hope your weekend is happy!


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!

    I like the new look of the blog. That header picture looks totally Mumbai. Love it.
    I wish we have more trees .. atleast as much as the skyscrapers.

      Thanks Lata. You’ve made me so happy with this compliment. I’ve been trying to nail the look of the blog for a long while now. And yes I do wish we had more trees. Right now I find this concrete jungle quite tiresome

    True, perspectives can often change our reality! Love the way you took this shot, Sunita. Amazing how we can often change things as they exist simply by changing our paradigms.

    A concrete jungle only has place for artificial trees… Hope we can preserve whatever few trees that have remained.. and yes, Great shot!

    Your blog looks perfect, Sunita! I like the changes, esp, the header picture. Did you click it?

    The tree, the skyscraper and our life…it is, indeed, all about perspectives. And, god knows I am working on changing mine these days! 🙂
