On the ridgeline of Udaigiri caves, this tree dramatically overlooks the farmfields below.
At the first of the Udaigiri meditation caves near Sanchi, this neem tree introduces you to the archeological site.
When I asked a passing youngster what this tree was, he said Barasan. Maybe thats a local version of Baragad- Banyan?
At the famous Sanchi stupa, I wondered at the complicated, familiar looking Ravirani tree with such a strange name. After a while I realized I was misreading the Devnagri writing for Khirni.
