Dear Mani ji: congratulations, its like your baby, and its wonderful
to see it "blossom"...
its a veritable storehouse of medicinal properties.... esp the black
pulp around the small seeds in the seedpod...in bengal the black stick
like pod is called Bandor-lathi......lathi for a monkey... as you say
liked by the monkeys, though Calcutta hardly has any free roaming
I call these types of trees Value added trees for street or Urban
My parents planted many such in our neighborhood in Calcutta, many of
whom survive, yet many have been cut down by our city pragmatists to
widen roads... etc... in recent times it has become somewhat
popular in Calcutta streets..
loved to see your tree...
