A weird phenamenon of droplets of water falling like rain from the leaves of a tree in Vizag, has resulted in a number of people visiting and worshipping it. Struck with wonder at the queer dampness underneath the tree, from the past 15 days, people at first thought them to be rain drops. But on observing that the drops of water trickled out of the leaves even when the sun was high in the sky, they began worshipping the tree as some goddess. Experts said that such a phenamenon is not uncommon. Excess water from the roots is exuded from the leaf edges due to hydrostatic pressure, they said.
