On JLB Road, Mysore

The company that has done up this bus shelter on JLB Rd. could sponsor roadside saplings to be planted close by and also on the road-divider. The lone plant that has survived on the road-divider tells the story of numerous others that were planted on this stretch, only to die for want of care. With community support, by way of nursing/watering at initial stages, from residents across the street the saplings would have survived to blossom on the JLB road divider. Another stretch of JLB Rd that could do with flowering plants in the middle.
A sprawling aged tree on JLB Rd., which has a story to tell that dates back, presumably, to the days when this road was laid by an erstwhile maharaja.
