From Earth To Firmament #ThursdayTreeLove

A majestic tree spotted at FRI, Dehradun

The scene looks so serene, so foreign that it's hard to believe it is in India. FRI - A beautiful place to be. Want to visit the place again, for yet another evening walk.

Linking the post with Parul for #ThursdayTreeLove


  1. Wow! What an amazingly GREEN photo . . . says she from drought-stricken Port Elizabeth in S.Africa! Thankful Thursdays returns

  2. Serene atmosphere.. Such a beautiful tree it is.

  3. Beautiful. It's the kind of place I'd love to read in the whole day long!

  4. What a lovely one. I can live here. Thank you so much for joining!

  5. Such a beautiful, majestic tree. Just thinking of all the shade that tree produces, and how appreciated it is!

  6. FRI is on the top of my places-to-visit-list... I hope I can make it there sooner than later. Your photograph has just reinforced this wish! :-)

  7. This does seem like a peaceful place..... like you said quite rare in India. And this tree is magnificent. Even without the people below, I'm sure it is imposing and grand

  8. I have been to FRI and there are many towering trees in the complex. I have to say these are impressive.

  9. Lovely place. So neatly maintained!! Your post made me to understand more on FRI.

  10. Calm and relaxing , feel like lying down on the grass:)

  11. Such a serene photo. Never visited Dehradun.If i see such a beautiful big green tree,i will go and hug that tree tightly.

Queeristan by Parmesh Sahani

  Queeristan (Amazon Link) Thanks to Audible Free Trial I listened to this amazing non-fiction on LGBTQ inclusion in Indian workplaces. Author Parmesh Sahani identifies as gay Indian, working closely with Godrej higher management and employees for years to create an inclusive workplace, both legally and in spirit. This book is a result of those years of experience, research, collaboration with individuals from difference spectrum of the society and organizations who has successfully transitioned into a queer friendly one.   Indian history is inclusive. From the Khajuraho temple architectures, to Konark to the Rig Veda, there is existing proofs even 2000 years ago of Indian inclusiveness of queer. It’s the draconian British law that criminalised it, which was scraped in 2009, came into effect once again following a sad judgement in 2013 and eventually was scraped off for good in 2018. I am in awe of the lawyers who fought this legal battle- colleagues and partners – Arundhati Katju
