Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Principles of Life
Teak is a hard wood used in building and furniture making. It is produced mainly in Burma, but is also grown in India, Thailand, Indonesia and Sri Lanka. In India, it has been in use for more than two thousand years.
The most important property of teak is its extraordinary durability. In ancient times, boats and bridges were built of this wood and in buildings as old as a thousand years, teak beams are still found to be in excellent condition.
