As I started growing up bigger and bigger, the temple authorities put a two feet wall like boundary around my trunk.This was done to protect me from being destroyed by crowds who thronged to me.When I was hungry as a kitten, I used to mew softly with a melancholy look.
This is why there is so much hype about me and my kin.
As I stand here, near a temple, I never ever feel lonely I get all sorts of company throughout the day, so, where is the scope of feeling lonely.
They come to me also and broom the area around me, wash the platform and I am trim and neat to welcome my guests for the day.
After the temple is cleaned there is a pooja, and from 7 a.m.
Here on the platform people sit and say their prayers and relax.
At times they also consume their temple prasad while sitting on this platform.I understand that, I am a peepal tree which just grows anywhere and everywhere.Ever since I was young, I remember several people coming to my root and worshipping me.They would light an earthenware lamp, and put it near my root, say their prayers and go away.This was a daily ritual which scores of people followed at my root ever since I can remember.My power steering and automatic transmission make for enjoyable driving. For safety, I have airbags fitted in me,and for comfort I provide soft seats and a lot of foot space. But above all, what makes me most desirable is my looks and style. I am a tree, tall and imposing, standing all alone near the campus of a temple.My life is ever so interesting as, I see a huge spectrum of society, funny gestures of people, and hear all kinds of conversation of the devotees who pass by me. As is true of all living beings I was also a long time back, a young sapling with this huge tree within me.But I was brought into the world , or as you call it,manufactured in an Indian company.Indians are known for their love and affection, so you can imagine the care and attention I got while I was being made in the factory.
