Nagpur Metro retains citys green cover; saves 427 trees from being cut

Nagpur Metro trimmed and saved 427 trees from being cut

Trees along Metro Rail alignment were trimmed

While executing ambitious infrastructural project in Nagpur, Nagpur Metro has been equally cautious of conserving environment in Nagpur. And one of the greatest examples of its efforts in this direction is the fact that the organisation has saved 427 trees just by trimming those trees instead of cutting them.

The trees, which were saved by trimming, were located along Kamptee Road along the Reach-II alignment or Central Avenue (CA) along the Reach-IV alignment. While executing the project, Maha Metro officials conducted extensive and detail survey and studies of the two alignments. During the study it was felt that trees were located along the alignment.

The survey had indicated that 427 tress were needed to be acted upon. The trees belonged to Mungna (Drum Stick), Ashoka, Banyan and other such species and belonged to different age groups. It was essential to act on the trees, as work on the Metro project work could not have gone further.

However, Maha Metro officials decided to consult experts, working in the field of agriculture and horticulture including Srikant Deshpande, a city-based environmentalist. Deshpande and other experts had suggested Maha Metro officials that the project work could go ahead just by trimming the branches.

After getting expert opinion, Maha Metro decided to just trim or cut few branches of these 427 trees. Thus Maha Metro did not just gave these trees a new lease of life but also ensured that the citys green cover remains along the two major roads remains undisturbed.

Deshpande said that it was great initiative on part of Maha Metro officials to trim trees.

It was major decision on part of Maha Metro and this caution has manifested in a multitude of steps taken by the organisation. The trees, whose branches were cut, but yet saved, today stand tall and are testimony to the steps taken by Maha Metro in conserving the local environment.

Remembrance

When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years

Late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. She would also tie rakhi to the latter.

Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?

The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.

After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”

To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”

On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.

BJP National Secretary Pankaja Munde said even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wouldn’t be able to end her political career if she lived in people’s hearts and minds. Munde said the same on Tuesday while addressing a public rally — part of PM Modi’s birthday celebrations for a fortnight across Maharashtra — at Ambajogai in Maharashtra’s Beed district.

Munde said, “If I live in people’s mind and heart, even Modiji cannot end my political career… Dynasty politics has been prevailing in the Congress party. Modiji, however, wants to end the dynasty rule… I hail from a political family, but if I live in your mind and heart, nobody will be able to finish (end the career) me. If I live in people’s minds and hearts, even Modiji cannot finish my political career.”
