(Mango tree and corner of my 🏠)

Beautiful name,
Malcorado (Mankurad)
Worldwide fame
and high demand.

Sparrows build nests,
snakes release their skins on branches.
Every day in the shade I rest,
attend webinars, workshops
and online classes.

Branches sway on the house,
to provide a shady roof,
children follow the signs
by hiding the treasure at the base.

For the ceremony,
a pylon of your leaves
is hung on the door.

For weddings,
a coconut is placed on a small kalash
and decorated with your leaves.
Exchanged and followed as tradition.

We get Juicy fruits,
purplish pink wild orchid flowers,
furniture, showpiece and firewood.
from you.

You are useful from root to leaf,
Is this the reason, you are called Kalpavriksha for ages?
