Defying all the calculations monsoon arrived on time and swept The Mumbai off its feet.
With its rains it brought an explosion of life everywhere… ….life blossoming on forest floor……..ephemerals pushing the earth aside, striving, climbing, clambering for a space for itself towards Sun……noises of being born can be heard if one put an ear to the ground. Tall trees silently grinning at all the happening down below on the forest floor and among their branches where birds & bees happily creating many monsoon love stories…..
We invite you all for a Tree Appreciation Walk on Bamboo Trail on 19th July at 7.30 am.
