A dusty path runs through a village where people and animals keep walking up and down, up and down. Others, on faster feet and wheels, shout ‘Out of the way, out of the way’. In a simple lyrical way, the author subverts commonly held views on environment and development by showing simultaneously the growth of a wide-spreading tree and a busy winding road, with each making room for the other. Pictures looking almost like embroidery charmingly blend styles to give this allegorical tale a timeless feel.
