One of the reasons I love travelling and walking or cycling is because I get to see the trees in different seasons planted by strangers and under whose shade I’ve had my most peaceful moments on our planet, in my little life 😊.
The horticulturists who decide on vegetation for entire cities, keeping every avenue, neighborhood and road in mind, don’t think of the ‘now’, they plan for generations ahead. Realizing full well that the fruits of these trees and the shade of them will belong to grateful strangers, decades later.
When the foundation for Chandigarh was being laid down by Le Corbusier, I read that he had planned the sectors colour-wise 🤗… He had planned that each section of the city will be in full-bloom at different times of year!
Planting trees is an art known to a chosen few professionals who devote their life learning about soil and water and seeds and nurturing… These are the souls who give our city their green lungs.
Should we not bow our heads in reverence, if not to them and their foresight, then at least to the majestic greenery around us?
No one should cut them with impunity, by getting some papers signed from an indifferent office bearer.
These are our treasures to be safe-guarded for the generations ahead. These are to be hugged whenever the opportunity presents itself 😊🙏❤️
