Long ago, near my house, there was a nice garden and park for everyone — children, elders and youngsters. Every evening, we used to play there and the elders would take their evening walk. We also conducted our association programmes there. It felt like we were in the midst of nature.

After a few years, I heard that the garden-park was going to be razed to construct an apartment. All of us were sad about this. Everyone showed their disapproval in many ways. The place was relaxing and refreshing for the elders and children. A few months later, the apartment came up in our garden-park. Now we have realised the importance of trees.

Plant more trees and save our planet from global warming.
