Shio Gragiano est un jeune garçon timide, mis à l’écart en raison des stigmates qu’il porte. En proie à de terribles cauchemars mystiques, il cherche le réconfort dans des confessions nocturnes. Un soir, Won, lycéen chargé de surveiller le fils débauché de son maître, fait la rencontre du garçon. Dans un climat troublé par des accidents mystérieux, les deux élèves vont progressivement se rapprocher, mais si les voies du Seigneur sont impénétrables, celles de l’Amour paraissent tout aussi obscures…

Like other fig species, including the common edible fig Ficus carica, banyans bear multiple fruit in structures denominated « syncarps ». The syncarp of Ficus species supplies shelter and food for fig wasps and, in turn, the trees are totally dependent on the fig wasps for pollination. Frugivore birds disperse the seeds of banyans. The seeds are small, and because most banyans grow in woodlands, a seedling that germinates on the ground is unlikely to survive. However, many seeds fall on the branches and stems of other trees or on human edifices, and when they germinate they grow roots down toward the ground and consequently may envelop part of the host tree or edifice.
The leaves of the banyan tree are large, leathery, glossy, green, and elliptical. Like most figs, the leaf bud is covered by two large scales. As the leaf develops the scales abscise. Young leaves have an attractive reddish tinge. Older banyan trees are characterized by aerial prop roots that mature into thick, woody trunks, which can become indistinguishable from the primary trunk with age. Old trees can spread laterally by using these prop roots to grow over a wide area.
In some species, the prop roots develop over a considerable area that resembles a grove of trees, with every trunk connected directly or indirectly to the primary trunk. In a banyan that envelops its host tree, the mesh of roots growing around the latter eventually applies considerable pressure to and commonly kills it. Such an enveloped, dead tree eventually decomposes, so that the banyan becomes a « columnar tree » with a hollow, central core. In jungles, such hollows are very desirable shelters to many animals. Different parts of the tree are known to be helpful in treating diseases like dysentery, diarrhea, diabetes, leucorrhoea, menorrhagia and nervous disorders. Banyan trees have many different health benefits due to the many endophytes that they host in their aerial roots.
In an experiment, these endophytes from the aerial roots of a banyan tree were examined to see how well they would be able to fight off certain bacteria strains that highly affect different plants. An ICMS approach was used to test the virulence of the endophytes against the bacteria. The results indicate that there is a broad spectrum of anti-fungal activity present in the tree’s aerial roots that can be used as anti-fungal agents in other plants as well, after further development. The name was originally given to F. In the Gujarati language, banya means « grocer or merchant », not « tree ».
The Portuguese picked up the word to refer specifically to Hindu merchants, and passed it along to the English as early as 1599 with the same meaning. By 1634, English writers began to tell of the banyan tree, a tree under which Hindu merchants conducted their business. Over time, the name became generalized to all strangler figs of the Urostigma subgenus. Central America and northern South America, from southern Mexico south to Paraguay. Florida, the Caribbean Islands, Central America, and South America south to Paraguay. One theory is that the Portuguese name for F. Florida and the Caribbean Islands, and distinguished from the above by its coarser leaf venation.
Due to the complex structure of the roots and extensive branching, the banyan is used as a subject specimen in penjing and bonsai. The oldest, living bonsai in Taiwan is a 240-year-old banyan tree housed in Tainan. The banyan tree is the national tree of India. It is also called Indian or Bengal fig.
This tree is considered sacred in India and can be seen near a temple or religious center. It is a big tree and gives shade to travelers in very hot summer months. An old custom offers worship to this tree. In Hinduism, the leaf of the banyan tree is said to be the resting place for the god Krishna. In the Bhagavat Gita, Krishna said, « There is a banyan tree which has its roots upward and its branches down, and the Vedic hymns are its leaves. One who knows this tree is the knower of the Vedas. Here the material world is described as a tree whose roots are upwards and branches are below.
