We realize value of something only after we have lost it. In this unforgiving desert heat, where there is not a shade anywhere nearby, the only respite, for camel and humans alike, is this tree. It was scary to imagine this place without this briefest of comfort.
We know the facts about deforestation, rapidly depleting greenery leading to global warming. But do we realize the effect in our day to day life? Who cares about the eco system far far away in antarctica when ice melts!! We wouldn't know or care, until we are one day soon enough desperately looking for a tree like this!!
