The Hugging Trees #ThursdayTreeLove

We found these trees in Lucknow’s Lohia Park while we were there this summer. Can you see there are two of them? I loved the way they seemed to be hugging each other, so close that one can barely make out which is which.

The trees capture the essence of my hometown which is a perfect blend of religions and cultures and languages, merging them all inextricably in its famed ganga-jamuni tehzeeb.

The park is absolutely delightful and I wish it were closer to where we live but we do make it point to go there at least once during our visit.

That’s all from me for now. I’ve been unable to write anything at all this past fortnight. I seem to be suffering from some kind of blog-existential-angst. However, I do know I’ll get around it sooner rather than later.

Till then, you guys have a good weekend.

  1. Mera Lucknow! 🙂 You’ve said it so beautifully, these hugging trees truly capture the essence of our home town. Lovely capture!

  2. Ganga-jamuna wali tahzeeb – masha-allah! Love the thought and the picture and more so that you played along this week. Super happy to see you around. <3

    1. I was glad to join in. As for that phrase – its quite popular in Lucknow – something every true Lakhnawi will know and talk about with pride.

  3. It’s such a sweet sight, mushy would be the right word for these two trees, hugging as if lovers from a past life!
    I hope you get over this ‘phase’ soon, Tulika! Waiting to read your posts!

    Love and hugs! <3

  4. Different but together. I think that’s the takeaway of this capture from you, Tulika. You also made me reminisce about Lucknow. Having done my B.Tech in MMMEC Gorakhpur, Lucknow is where we spent some wonderful moments. Ah memories! Thanks Tulika:)

  5. I had to really look closely and then i realized the top part of the first tree is literally wrapped around the other one… Its the kind of thing which usually has some old legend associated with it, right?

  6. You really do have to look closely to see the smooth barked tree and the roughed bark tree, so different but so supportive.

  7. This is quite amazing and your caption for these trees go so well. They do seem to be hugging each other. I wouldn’t have recognised that there were 2 trees if you hadn’t mentioned.
    I hope you get around your angst soon and return to blogging because I have been coming around every day to visit your blog ki koi naya post aa to nahin gaya ❤

After much deliberation, I decided to read Anxious People. It had been on my TBR for the longest time but I kept putting it off because I couldn’t bear to be disappointed. There has been so much hype about Backman, and more specifically, about the book that I was almost afraid to pick it up.
