My tree dream...

I have helped, in a very small way, to enable the Wildlife Conservation Group (WCG) with Nagesh, Ashwath, Hari and team, to rejuvenate a small lake in Kaleswari, a village on the road to Ragihalli.

We are now nearly at the stage of planting trees along its banks.

I have bought a banyan sapling which I want planted on the banks of the lake. My dream is that, one day in the future, several decades hence, people will sit under its cooling shade, birds chirp from its foliage, squirrels run all over its trunk,children swing from its branches, and mendicants sleep under it.. Good future planning, don't you think?
