Wisdom is like a boabab tree; no one person can embrace it – African Proverb.
It bears lovely white flowers, which on drying out have a golden tinge. The flower has five petals. This tree blossoms very occasionally, with very few flower, but when it does, it spreads its fragrance far and wide.
I visited this baobab tree a long time ago with my father. Recently, I visited it with my son. It was trip down the memory lane.
There are not many baobab trees in north India. This is called a Parijat tree. It is considered sacred and many legends are associated with it as it is considered to be wish-bearing-tree (kalpvriksha from heaven). This is located in Kintur, about 38 kms east of the district headquarters, Barabanki in UP, India.
It has certainly been very benevolent to me.
