In a village in India people plant 111 trees for every girl born there

One such village in southern Rajasthan’s Rajsamand district is quietly practicing its own, homegrown brand of Eco-feminism and achieving spectacular results. Here, villagers plant 111 trees every time a girl is born and the community ensures these trees survive, attaining fruition as the girls grow up. On an average 60 girls are born here every year, according to the village’s former sarpanch Shyam Sundar Paliwal, who was instrumental in starting this initiative in the memory of his daughter Kiran, who died a few years ago.

Such families are identified by a village committee comprising the village school principal along with panchayat and Anganwadi members.

But here’s the best part.

People also plant 11 trees whenever a family member dies.

Now these trees, especially the Aloevera, are a source of livelihood for several residents.

The village panchayat, which has a studio-recorded anthem and a website of its own, has completely banned alcohol, open grazing of animals and cutting of trees.

Mr. Paliwal recalls the visit of social activist Anna Hazare, who was very happy with the progress made by the village, he says.

The image that the mention of the word Mumbai conjures up is that of an upstart of a city that made it good due to its colonial past; a city whose existence is nothing more than a recent blip in the endless timeline of Indian history; a city which has no rich cultural past to be proud of, and a city which certainly has no spiritual tradition.

There are billions of galaxies in the Universe and each galaxy has billions of stars in it. Yet, even on the clearest night, we are not able to see more that 5000 stars with our unaided eyes. It is for the simple reason that most of the stars very very far away from us and each other.

“Is that high-pitched voice really mine?” “Do I actually speak in such a shrill voice?” OR “There must be some problem with the recording instrument. This is definitely not my voice.” The reaction varies from an embarrassed grin to utter dismay to complete disbelief to outright rejection when you hear your recorded voice for the first time. You refuse to believe that the shallow, ear piercing sound is your own voice, the one you have been hearing all our lives. Sorry. There is nothing wrong with the recording equipment or the speakers. The problem lies in your head. Literally.

Meet Abdul Kareem from Kasargod, Kerala…

Puffer, blowfish, swellfish, or, in Japanese, fugu – is perhaps the world’s most deadly fish. However, strangely in Japan, the fugu epitomises gourmet dining.
