It was heart-wrenching to watch *really* big trees being chain-sawed and uprooted for road expansion. These trees could easily be over 60 years old and they are so big that if two of us wrapped our arms around its trunk, we still wouldn’t be able to touch each other. I understand the need to decongest the burgeoning traffic on the Vadapalani Arcot Road, which kinda alleviates the pain a little bit. Yet, it hurts. And I can see the hurt on many others’ eyes as they pass thru those chopped carcass of uprooted trees.
