Plucky Leaf

Taken in November 2009, Thrissur, Kerala, at my sister's place.

All the croton plants around seemed to be doing well, but this one had only one leaf and a bit of dried up stem that stood up like the mast of a sinking ship, it's flag yanked off by a fierce storm. It lay there on a bed of sharp edged stones fighting for dear life. I wonder how long it's courageous tryst with life would last but its pluck had me wanting to preserve that moment forever.
