Common Name: Baobab
I sit here a little sleep deprived talking to you about the baobab tree. Why? you ask am I talking about a tropical tree with an elphantine trunk found mostly in the southern hemisphere. I don't know, I found one here in Pune. It's like finding zebra on the road instead of a cow. I'm being made to understand Baobobs grow in the Kalahari, Madagascar and Central Australia and not in the Pune urban wilderness.
Here's the squib on how I found my Baobab tree.
During the day, I try and study in locations other than my room as a refreshing alternative to my room, which I see enough of in the night. I'm sorry if the post sounds like gibberis- just dismiss it asrealism. Anyways, my room is no place to study duringthe day because its plagued with povercuts, darkness and the heat. Need I mention it's a bloodymess. It's all got something to do with the circles of life.
I usually study at Pune University . The campus is a lush, tropical green something out of a gaughin painting. Pune University was formerly a botanical gardens which was latter converted into a university hundred or so years ago. That's where I found my baobab tree.
No I did get some studying done -- in between the pictures.
