Is it possible for a boy to make friends with an old mango tree?

Oh! Yes, it is possible! Read this book.

You will be thrilled to find Amal, who is in his early teens, become the close friend of an old mango tree called Major. They live in the same campus. They interact mentally. 

This blue-sky story explores the vast world of living plants and trees and their defining characteristics, similar to those of us. It is not just the product of imagination; it is based on scientific research, the latest technological innovations, authenticated facts, and so on. The book discusses the contribution of 'extra' ordinary simple folks and also, it lucidly discusses the supreme importance given to trees in all major religions. 

The story ends with a message that trees can live jolly well without us, but we cannot live without trees. Therefore, we should not neglect, ignore, or harm them — we must take care of them and love them as our fellow beings. Even otherwise, trees are beautiful -- we should love and befriend them. This will give us relaxation and peace of mind.
