Giving Tree

Dear Loco,

I remember reading a story about The Giving Tree, and it comes back to me now when I think of you. You were my giving tree.

We started the day watching Gandhadha Gudi. It was mesmerizing. I feel like I’ve been living under a rock. I didn’t know there were so many fascinating species of birds in the Western Ghats.

Did you know Langurs signal to the forest the coming of predators?

And, since we’re all obsessed with wild cats, I saw a bunch of your cousins on the big screen too.

There was even a slide in the theatre. I know that’s so random!

After the movie, we bought Chutney some clothes to say “Thank you”. He said he was touched. 🙂

I met mum. I told her about the gifts we’d like to give her. She was excited about new dresses.

Being the giving tree is not easy. I don’t know how you did it – a stormy entrance, a ton of love, and a dramatic exit. And, also, the many lessons.

Goodnight, my darling.
