Every tree is holy in India

This is Chennai. My daughter pointed it out to me, otherwise I would have missed it. And since then I have been seeing these everywhere. A tree, anoited with turmeric and kumkum, and worshipped with flowers and a lamp. Divinity acknowleged.
India, village or city, is a land rooted in a sense of divinity, as every non-overeducated person of this country will assent.
This I learnt first in my village, where the anthill, the well, the tank, the plough, the neem tree, the amla tree, the peepul tree, the chigara tree, all are deemed worthy of worship, and are worshipped.
