I have a thing for both women and trees. You probably wonder why…but I think both are somehow related. I am still working on my experiments…hence will take time to prove it.
The first hint that encouraged pursuing this study was when I realized both women and trees have strong barks.
Even as I pursue this, I understand that there are many differences between the two. The foremost being…a man can walk up to any tree and give it a big hug. When it comes to women, this is scarcely possible. Even if the lady is your wife…believe me, for I am married. If my history (and biology) is right, this is the reason why Sunderlal Bahuguna tried his Chipko Andolan only on the trees.
There is a school of thought that believes women and trees are not related. Their contention is…when a man barks up a tree; he is bound to get heard. But that doesn`t work on women. They hear when they want to. These people also argue that when prevailing conditions are not favorable to them, the trees shed leaves…while the ladies shed something totally different – tears.
My experiments on the relationship between trees and women are still on. And it is getting hectic in the lab…which is why I am looking for a lady secretary. Somebody, who won`t get upset when I give her a big hug – of course…for experimental reasons!
