A view of the park that could do with trees.
I haven’t discussed this, but my sense is the Ugadi tree-planting should be made an open-house affair. The ‘A’s of this fledging green company, I gather, plan to mark the company opening by inviting their guests to plant a sapling each (is this still on, Ashwin?). If it is, I have a suggestion. Why not open the tree-plant event to public park cricketers, residents in the neighborhood, and even interested passers-by who drop in to see what is going on?
I understand the event organizers may not have enough saplings to go round. But then residents around the park could be encouraged to bring their own saplings for planting. An enterprising nursery in the city can helpfully open a sales outlet (a discount counter) for the interested neighborhood residents. Sapgreen, the company, can bond with the neighborhood by providing a platform to green the park. And residents, on their part, would have a chance to say Happy Ugadi with saplings. How about that, for public participation, Ashwin?
A guidemap that gives a rough idea of where the park is. In case you lose your way, by following this map, don't curse the event organisers. This is their first time in the business. And they are doing their imaginative best.
