We Welcome you

Devi (Chennai, India) on 24 May 2019 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

In most of our festivals, the venue sports banana trees on either side of the entrance ..teeming with big bunches of bananas and flowers...
Why Banana trees They are symbolic. Every part of the tree is useful to the humans,.. Now even textiles are coming up in the market...shirts and sarees woven with banana fibres. Banana trees grow in clusters. The also represent fertility.

Banana is also a good-tasting fruit. It contains a lot of substances useful for humans. It's great to have textile fiber in its leaves.

Hi Devi:)
Nice pic and really impressed by your creativity in photography. In Telugu we say " Kaadedi Kavithaku Anarham" it means if we have poetic heart, we can write poetry on anything. Just like that you are

@Sree: Thank you Sree :) For that poem too.. Everything can be made to look beautiful with photography and the way a human mind sees it !! I am still seeing that beautiful photograph of yours with that solitary bird watching the surging water !!

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

Not only being symbolic, it makes a beautiful decoration. I also love the flowers. I remember having banana trees in our back yard in Hawaii. The bananas were so sweet and delicious.

25 May 2019 1:30am

@Elaine Hancock: Thank you Elaine..I am happy you are able to relate to this plant. We make dishes with the banana flowers and cook the tender stems too. The juice extract from the stem ( and the curry prepared ) has the power to digest the stones in the gall bladder :)

Sam from Chennai, India

A fine capture of this beautiful decoration with banana trees and flowers. I like this Welcome picture. Thank you Devi. :)
