Trees and Roads

As usual when last evening went for walking I happened to see huge tamarind trees being cut down that are more than 70 or 80 years old and cutting down them with modern gadgetry is easy , but the roots being taken out seems to be a hard task , since the trees even after digging up below the earth to the tune of 15 feet and below seemed impossible to pluck it ; so the cutters using different techniques ; one using bulldozers and cutting machines with human endeavour . One thing immediately struck me was how humans are easily disposable compared to the immensity and life of trees and its strength and service to the humanity.
Although these trees are felled down to lay the six lane roads for the convenience of traffic and future infrastructure development, something melting inside us while witnessing these trees being cut down.
