No space for gardening?
Many of us shy away from growing plants with the excuse that we do not have a backyard/front yard, we live in small flats etc. But gardening is all about having the will to grow a plant and having the patience to watch the plant grow. This is the message which came to me strongly when I noticed the Public Art installation near the Chandni Chowk Metro station by Prayas Abhinav of Bangalore.
The installation is on top of a tea stall and shows plants like ghobi, tulsi, palak etc which can be grown on top of the stall to meet the daily needs of the stall owner. The volunteer at the site explained to us proudly " Ma'm this is how we can all contribute to reduce global warming". I was touched.
