Am unable to comment on Tulika's latest post or should I say teaser. Hence this post. I am sure a lot of people would have guessed.
The book is Out of the way, Out of the way by Uma and Uma.
An Indian village is where the story opens.
The cycle rickshaw stands for a rural non motorised existance where we still have some time to stand and stare
A young boy plants a seedling in front of his house The tree grows, the village " grows" into a city as well
The tree makes shade and takes people under its care literally A city emerges in place of the village. The tree is still making way and waves!!
