‘No trees except the one which grows and seethes in one’s dreams’— why is the phrase ‘grows and seethes’ used?

Answer :

The poet narrates his experience of getting to spot another banyan tree after shifting to Baroda. The view of this banyan tree reminds him of the one which his father had removed before shifting to Baroda. The memory of that banyan tree haunts him, often in his dreams where it appears faded and blurred, signifying the blemishing of its existence. The memory of the tree grows and sustains in his dreams with every passing day. Thus, the poet uses the term “grows”. Also, the poet employs the term “seethes”, perhaps to signify that the severed tree grows and grows with rage and anguish in an attempt to avenge her death. The image of the dead tree bubbling with vigour and anger causes the poet to use the term “seethes”.
