While Anna and I were driving out one evening last week we saw a group of students working on this stretch of land to convert this into a garden. They are active in the Social service club of the MOSC Medical College.
When we stopped to chat with them, they invited us to join them which we did for a short while.
This enthusiasm to improve the environment is spontaneous. They recently planted several saplings on the campus and encouraged other colleges in the town to do the same.
One of them questioned me when we trimmed trees in the garden of the Early Learning Centre. How refreshing it was to hear such a plea to preserve the environment by respecting trees and planting new ones!
