Lighter side of India trip: Phylum and Species be danged
Found this sign near the entrance of a restaurant in Kalyani where I had gone with my siblings and their families for dinner.
It says “Don’t pluck any flower, fruit or leaf”.
It is a pine tree!!
Would like to see somebody picking the flowers and fruits… 🙂
Is it a pine tree?
What is the English for “jhau” gaachh? Is it not a kind of pine tree?
They put the sign up AFTER all the pine flowers and leaves were picked, otherwise I am sure it would be full. I guess one could mistake a pine cone for a flower.
Wouldn’t Pine cones qualify as flowers and fruit?
Yes rajib how can you be wrong. Yes it a species of pine
It’s easier to hang a board on pine … those are leaves spiky and rough. They do have fruits or is it flower that resemble a cone
