The material for this post was shared by my dad during a family trip to India 10 years ago 🙂
Banyan trees have special significance in Asian countries.
Vines drop down from branches and join and grow into the trunk, thereby enlarging the tree.
This results in a sturdy tree with thick roots.
This tree is significant because of the importance of family in Eastern cultures.
As children grow up, marry, and have children, they’re not just starting new homes, but enlarging the family. Staying connected.
