Due to the Covid19 lockdown, stores were open only for a couple of hours in Pune. 10am to Noon. People had to stand in a queue in designated spots to buy their needs.
|Every shop had such circles marked out where customers had to queue up..
April is a pretty hot time of the year for us. Which means, this wait would have been really hot and trying if it were not for these wonderful trees by the roadside.
It did not matter if the trees were exotic, indigenous, flowering, fruiting, … they gave a welcome cooling shade for the folks below waiting patiently for their turn.
Thanks to the folks who planted these trees maybe two or three decades ago and we can now reap the benefits!
“One generation plants the trees, another gets the shade”- Chinese Proverb
I am sure all of you must have noticed and enjoyed the trees in your lane or your society in the lockdown period!
I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove bloghop. Do head over to see some fantastic trees from around the world. Better still, join in!
Stay home folks and stay safe!
