05 Jul After a week or more after the tree fall on a school bus that killed seve or so kids, the forest dept babus and royalty has not yet issued permission to cut and remove the trees around the school compound menacingly. I was a student in the class of 1963 in the univ college trivandrum. Those days we had a line of of six or seven managing trees inside college along the west side of the modern mg road. Yesterday Eve I parked my car in my road, on the west side and mahagony lined road. One difference I noticed is that the trees are morbid if I may use the word. They are in a state of ill health. Not that the tree will be uprooted in gust of wind tomoro or next month, there is a possibility there is a life science dept in the college and no specialist teacher in the dept has never made any public statement on the life cycle of mahagony tree or the extent of the life cycle. There are dozens of institutes closely looking at the trees and vegetation I’m the state. Yet they are not mentally ready to make facts known. The stock answer on their part is that I was never asked about it. So I am not commenting.
