Jenna | #ThursdayTreeLove - 10

Bangalore - January 2020

Every year in January, just before my father-in-law leaves to Sabarimala, our family organizes a puja and donates lunch for the underprivileged. This year it was at an orphanage for the deaf and dumb. I don't want to get into the specifics of it, because this is something very personal to us.

Right outside the main eating hall, is this mango tree. Right next to it is the hand wash area. The tree provides ample shade and I noticed that the children liked to sit under it and chat with each other via actions. It felt like a safe haven to them, I guess.

**Jenna: Heaven.


Thursday Tree Love is a photo feature on the fabulous Parul's blog hosted on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. The next edition will be live on February 13th, 2020. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her post.


  1. I've not seen a mango tree here in the UK, I didn't realise they grow so big. I believe you can grow them here in the right conditions.

  2. That's a lovely scene. As a kid, I have spent summer vacation reading under a Mango tree and chatting with my cousins. Lovely memories those were. That name, Jenna is so beautiful too, Soumya. Thanks for joining. I hope to see you back on the 13th.

  3. Trees almost always form the focal point of a place - especially a large, shady one.

  4. This tree does seem to be very much part of the community like a loving grandparent watching over the family.

  5. That's a lovely click of tree which has been providing place to sit, chit chat, play under its shade.
