The Lone Survivor.

This tree which stands alone in a tiny hill is the lone survivor of the war between human and nature. Peepal tree (Ficus Religiosa) is considered by Nepalese as the incarnation of Lord Vishnu and is worshipped throughout the country. This is the sole reason why this tree still survives while a whole forest around it could not. The fear of God saved this one but what about the rest? Let us coexist with nature. It is the only way we can exist.
