The Royal bird and The flame of the forest
Indian vulture and Kesuda(palash tree)
The flowers are of the tree Butea monosperma or ‘Kesudo’ in Gujarati, also known as Flame of the forest. They are soaked in water to make a deep yellow colour used for playing ‘Dhuleti. ‘ “We get the flowers mainly from south and central Gujarat, which have forests teeming with Kesudo trees.
Vultures are often overlooked and perceived as lowly scavengers, but they play a crucial role in the environments in which they live. … Vultures, also known as nature’s cleanup crew, do the dirty work of cleaning up after death, helping to keep ecosystems healthy as they act as natural carcass recyclers.
