Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

When the Kesharwanis decided to branch out and expand their family home, they came up with a novel way of dealing with an ancient giant fig tree in their garden -- they built the house around it. Now the thick trunk of the 150-year-old tree is the central feature of their residence, growing through the middle of the building.

The family also wanted to send the message that people can put down roots in the middle of nature without destroying anything.

The four-storey building is a local landmark because of its unique facade. Leafy branches jut out from the windows, dwarfing the building and prompting curious looks from passersby.

The tree has never caused any practical problems to the family, insisted Kesharwani.

"We don't even realise that the tree exists because it doesn't come in our way. It just stands there silently."

In shame

Feeling shame for the shameless is phoolish.

Besides, Pakistan has never defeated India in a World Cup match. Everyone knew history would repeat itself.
