Creativity and Aging: Tap into your Potential!Creativity is part of everyone, not just “geniuses,” and we don’t have to be born with any inherent qualities or raised in special circumstances to be creative.

കാരണം മഞ്ഞിലും മഴയത്തും,

ഞാൻ വേദനയോടെ തിരിച്ചറിഞ്ഞു,
എന്റെ ആശ്വാസം നിന്നിൽ അല്ല,
എഴുത്തിൽ ആയിരുന്നു.
എഴുത്തായിരുന്നു എന്റെ പ്രണയം.

The tree since has thick coat of leaves,is nesting location for sparrows.It also hosts a kind of fruit  fly.The seeds cannot always sprout so they are usually grown through saplings from roots.
