I recently had the good fortune (aided by a friend’s consent!) to visit the Botanical Gardens of Kolkata.. Check out the pics here! …. The place was a nice little drive from the heart of Kolkata city where I live.

The place was extremely beautiful (thanks to the weather!) and truely, it was nature as good as it can get in a place as close as this to Kolkata.

I was amazed to see the famed “Great Banyan Tree.” It branches out and then sends 2880 (phew!) aerial roots DOWN to the ground. These then flesh out to support and sustain the branches.

The central trunk has long been removed (1925) , so every part of this tree that remains has grown down to the ground from the air.

  2. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
    violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate
