This is a narkal gaach - Coconut tree - and not a taal gaach. We get coconuts (brown ones) and daab (fresh green ones) from it.
Its been there outside my window ... just out of my arm's reach for atleast 18 years and maybe even before we moved in here. And yet I just found out about it now. After my Sunday picnic post ... thru aghast phone call (from my friend and host of the picnic) and other blogger(s) via comment. Well its never too late to learn!
