The monsoon has left Mumbai in a great hurry…….grasses have stopped growing…..shedding and burying its seeds for the future…..greens of yesterday slowly blending in to golden hue……there is a silence and stillness in the forest……Its time for us to sit quietly and listen to the falling leaves …..we take you through, near Kanheri Caves, on Peacock trail….. a very secluded winding path, crowded both the side with the tall trees of Amti, Kante Savar, Alu, Dhaman, Hasoli, Haldu, Sarpandi……. opening on a small hillock where on Thor (Euphorbia nerifolia), one can see the networking of Social Spiders everywhere…. and finally the dazzling display of clear blue sky and green canopy of the trees…
