Bombay, Mumbai, India.


Mahim Tryst

Hero meets zeno at Mahim Pipal tree.

Pipal tree (Ficus religiosa), a native tree of India,
held sacred by the Buddhists,
who believe that Gautama Buddha received
enlightenment under a Bo tree at Bodh Gaya.

The Bo tree attains great size and age;
the leaves, which hang from long,
flexible petioles, rustle in the
slightest breeze. A single tree
houses a hundred crows in Mumbai.
