Photographer's Note

The Tulasi tree is a most important plant. It is a holy plant for the Hindu Religious people. Almost every Hindu home and temple have a Tulasi tree.

The Tulasi plant also possesses curative properties and is said to be an antidote to snake-venom. It destroys mosquitoes and other pests and purifies the air. All the parts of holy basil plant such as leaves, sprout, stem, soil underneath the plant have great medicinal properties.

During Diwali we also light the Tulasi tree so that the greatness of Tulshi comes in front of the world. And the human respect on nature grows gradually.
