The shesham, the sal, the pipal and the nim are vivid with fresh foliage.
This was a nest in course of construction, which the vulture was lining with pipal branches.
He was sitting under a pipal tree in a little village named Buddh-gaya, southeast of Benares, when light dawned upon his soul.
Heavy cracks in the roof let in shafts of the fading daylight, and roots of weeds and pipal trees had penetrated and hung below.
No trees, perhaps, are held in greater veneration in India, than the Ficus Religiosa or pipal tree.
Scarcely had I lost sight of him when there was a considerable commotion in the pipal tree near by.
I discovered that the bird making the commotion near the summit of the pipal tree was a vulture.
Hornbills feed largely on fruit and are fond of that of the pipal and the banian trees.
Something like it is the peepul, or pipal, though its branches do not take root in the ground like the other.
