One of the most extraordinary relationship in the world is the relationship between the mother and her child. Mother’s are the basic foundation of our very existence and first teacher of our life.
The unique relationship is priceless in terms of her unfathomable love, sacrifice and selfless dedication towards her child. Therefore Mother’s Day is celebrated today all over the world to acknowledge and honour all the Mothers. Mother as described by Rudyard Kipling is as follows
The term Mother, refers to nurture, care and support which is also very relatable to the trees growing the forest. The trees laden with fruits bear seeds which fall on the ground and get nourished by the nutrients.
The big speechless tree, stands at one place and silently supports the baby plants by transferring nutrients and water through underground mycorrhizal networks. Besides, these trees are home to multitude species birds, insects and animals where they carry forward their life cycles, maintaining gene pools.
So to commemorate Mother’s Day little children participated in a tree plantation activity along the hillslopes. These trees will not only help to conserve soil, but also will provide various ecosystem services in the coming future.
Just like how mothers make the world better in so many ways, trees are central to creating a healthy climate, clean air, clean water, and providing natural habitat to the biodiversity. Trees planted in the outdoors are ideal gifts not only for Mother’s but also for our Planet.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!
