'The Adventures in a Banyan Tree' is a beautiful short story. It is written by Ruskin Bond, an Indian author of British origin. In this story we see a single banyan tree creating much beauty and harmony. The author tells that we should preserve nature to make this world a beautiful place.

When the author was a boy, he used to enjoy his vacations at his grandfather's house in Dehradun. It was at the foot of the Himalayas. There was an old, magnificent banyan tree in the garden. He used to spend most of his leisure time in that tree. His Grandfather was very old. So he could not climb the tree. Thus the tree became the boy's domain.

In the tree, the boy befriended a young grey squirrel. He didn't harm it. So it became friendly with him. It used to take food from his hands. In the spring when the banyan tree was full of fruits, it was the noisiest place. Birds of all kinds would flock into it. Halfway up the tree, the boy had built a platform for sitting. There he used to read books and watch the surroundings.

On a sunny afternoon, he was sitting in the tree. He witnessed a deadly fight between a small mongoose and a huge cobra. Both of them were clever and skilful fighters. They were aggressive too. Besides the boy, a myna and a crow were also witnessing the fight. They interfered in the fight. The crow was killed by the snake. But the myna escaped. At the end of the fight, the mongoose won and the cobra was killed.

The banyan tree was also the setting for a strange affair between a grey squirrel and a white rat. The white rat was bought from the market by their grandfather. One day the boy discovered three white baby squirrels in a nest in the banyan tree. Grandfather told the boy that the white rat must be the father.
