My father-in-law loves to be with his plants and trees. He is 90 now and all his life, he has been with them. Going with him, I love to ‘catch him unaware‘. He is so interested in Life.
Plucking wild fruit, to make rasam
Looking at the mango tree
bringing in areca nuts from the garden
Trying to pluck coconut from the roof
Contemplating from his favourite chair
Seeing how to make a ring from the holy grass called Darbe
Spreading ripe areca nut on the ground for drying
