It was a rainy day of Sunday. Tanu's father brought four saplings of Jamun and Jascaranda from the Greenfinger Nursery which is near to his house. With a spade, he dug four pits in the garden. Tanu planted the saplings in these pits. Mother levelled the soil around with a hoe. Then she sprayed some water from a watering can.

 "How will they grow without food?" Tanu asked her father. Father said that plants make their own food by a process named photosynthesis. 

"But how?" Tanu sounded curious. 

"These roots collect water from soil. The leaves catch sunshine during the day. They use these to make food in the leaf factory," explained his Father. 

"And why do we plant trees?" Asked Tanu.

What did these words mean? How can trees be best friends? And how can the world die without trees?

Soon the stranger began working on his tree. He brought many small pieces of coloured glass. With great care, he shaped the roots and a tall trunk. The branches came next. For the leaves and flowers, he used green and white glass. Two years went by. The tree glittered in the Sun. The colours of sunrise and sunset filtered through the leaves. People came from far and near to see his tree. The tree was beautiful but its flowers had no fragrance. Its glittering, glossy nests had no birds. No squirrel ever came near it. No children climbed its branches. There was no honey in the beehive. Tamal was a sad, sad man. 

As grandmother's story came to an end, Tanu clapped her hands.
