Tree Uproots Itself at Gol Dak Khana

Another Victim…

Tree felled at Gol Dak Khana

…at Gol Dak Khana, New Delhi

The strong winds and rains in the last few days have damaged many a branches and felled several trees. Notable among those, are the ones like above; that have been concretized from all sides, leaving no space for support, damaging anchorage and facilitating a slow-death, hastened only by freak weather events, that the city has been experiencing since the last few days. Such trees have no choice but to uproot themselves at the slightest possible opportunity. Suicide or organised murder – one can only wonder?
