Mangaluru: ‘Me and my husband had planted trees on both sides of the four kilometers of road in my place. We did not waited for any one’s help or assistant. In the days of utter poverty we were self-motivated and wanted to fill the void of not having children. The trees have paid dividends to me in a different way. They, besides giving me satisfaction have providedthe whole of the environment there with fresh air and shade. I can also say that the trees are the best things to leave back when we move on said environmental activist of international fame Salu Marada Thimmakka today at Besant Women’s College.
