The tree in the photo has withered and dried out slowly yet completely after a gradual impact of the poisonous pollution emitted by diesel engines of the passenger buses taking shelter under it. It symbolizes the slow death nature is going through along with human development and accentuates the need for ecologically sustainable development.
