Plant a Tree – July 2019


“The best thing anyone can do for posterity is PLANT A TREE. The best time to do that was 20 years ago and the second best time is NOW”

Darpan Foundation flagged off the second phase of the Tree Planting initiative Kshetra Darpan on Sunday, 21 July 2019.

After planting hundreds of trees at the Darpan Ashram during the month of June 2019, it was now time to plant trees alongside Urigam roads, government clinics and local schools.

It was a day where children, village youth, women and MNREGA workers gathered, determined to make a difference to life on Earth. The Village Administrative Officer and Panchayat clerk were also present.

Guruji addressed the vibrant gathering wherein he emphasized the importance of happiness and cleanliness in each one’s lives. Guruji said that only when we are happy can we be of service to others.

650 native trees of flower, fruit, shade and medicine were carefully selected and procured by Darpan Foundation and planted by enthusiastic volunteers in Urigam.

It was a perfect day, filled with happiness and laughter, filled with toil and soil, filled with a feeling of “oneness” where people from different age groups and backgrounds connected for a common cause, that of restoring planet Earth.
