In ancient Sanskrit literature there are many references to young maidens kicking the Ashoka tree to make it bloom.
Kicking trees that are over 9 metres tall to help them flower is a good thing. Water can get blocked inside the truck because of its great height and by hitting the tree shock waves are sent through which release the columns of water. The tree realises that is threatened with a poor water supply and this is just the stimulus that it needs to flower.
Kicks can be given by anyone-not only maidens!
