“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb
Our country achieved freedom from the clutches of the 200 year long British rule back in 1947. We celebrate it on 15th of August every year and today, 70 years later we merely change our profile pictures and hoist the Indian flag or listen to patriotic songs to commemorate the day. This Independence day, it is our golden chance to do a little bit more for our motherland. Time to start cycling, time to start planting, the message is loud and clear, it’s never too late to start doing the right thing!
Mother Earth has blessed us with almost everything in a decorated platter, be it air, water, food and of course a home. Over the years, we have left no stone unturned to destroy our own habitat. Even our lifestyle has left us completely disconnected with ourselves and the simpler things in life which used to make us happy.
This year on 15thAugust, i.e. on the “70th Independence Day”, Carvan Trips in collaboration with iKheti brings an opportunity for you to make a difference. Join us as we pedal away without a care in the world through the lush greenery of our very own Aarey Gardens, and lend us a hand as we go about planting as many seed bombs as we can.
Nothing beats the fulfilling feeling of a cycle ride and planting a tree. With a small seed, we pedal towards a brighter future. Due to the recently proposed Metro Station, we might witness the sacrifice of a lot of trees inside Aarey. So let us do our bit and plant more trees and make this Independence Day a happy one!!!
