43: Neem Trees

12 Feb

There’s something about neem trees that I associate with north India. They’re everywhere, just like how bougainvillea plants are everywhere in Bangalore. Or gulmohar trees. Or those ones bursting with yellow flowers that announce the arrival of spring.

I always find myself drawn to these trees, their coolness, their stories; for I believe they have stories to share. They’re almost always found near places of historical, political, social, and cultural significance. I cannot explain this connection, this fascination, this love. I don’t feel capable enough to give them and their stories due justice.


Perhaps one day. :)
