The Bougainvillaea Tree
My sister Usha has a Bougainvillaea tree
People come from far to see her Bougainvillaea tree
It is the envy of her neighbours
Friends sing her praises and call her ‘Green fingers’
It is 50 years old fed and watered like her baby
She has written a book on its history and care
Grafted to three different plants it’s her
Pride and joy with a history kept in a photo album.
Even famous people visit her
The chief minister of her state
Amitabh Bacchan and his wife
She has photos and autographs
To add to her accolades
The Bougainvillaea has made her famous!
Me too as I am her sister!!!
