My Original Poem : "Under the banyan tree"

An old banyan tree beside my  sweet home, everyday I see.  I take rest in peace  under its cold shadow. sometimes I only sit silently  but, do not feel lonely.  when I touch I feel its affection  I weep for a while remembering my mother’s face. when I was a child thinking and thinking  about my mom I lost her forever.  a cold breeze blows around me  under the banyan tree.

Pond is the only source of drinking water in this village. Do you believe ?

It is unbelievable that a pond (locally called Dighi) is the only source of drinking water for the entire village. But, it’s true. West Bengal is a state of India where I live in. Last year when I visited rural area of the southern part of Bengal I found this pond. There are only two arsenic polluted tube-well situated in the village. Around 300 families crowd an open water pond, locally called Dighi, throughout the day. lot of lotus in water [filth on the bank] [a perfect view] [bank of the pond] Tags :   India, Nature, Photography, Travel, Flowers, Flowers & Plants photography, Landscape photography This Post Was Published On My Steemit Blog .  Earned : $09.61 SBD Converted to USD @0.9951$ Rate = $9.5629 USD .  First Time heard about Steemit ?
