One day for green Belagavi
Belgaum /Belagavi, once the Mahabaleshwar of the poor was full of lush green patches with nature bestowing upon it it’s best climatic conditions, ample rain and plenty of messing sites for the birds. It was this plentiful place that several erstwhile dynasties chose as their home, including the British who stationed their army here.
But things were not to be so got ever, Belgaum today has grown by leaps and bounds , population explosion , rapid industrialization and unplanned urbanization has taken outs toll on the city. Today we are reeling under drought, in sufficient water, rampant diseases especially respiratory diseases like asthma and of course a visibly poor rainfall. The root cause for this is the rampant tree feeling add deforestation that has occurred as result of unplanned urbanization. The situation looks from.
But as always the people of Belgaum, people who were the first to fight for the freedom of India , people who have inherited the legacy of Shivaji and Kittur Channamma will not give up , it’s time to take a stand . It’s time to restore our city of its glory. It’s time to reclaim out lung spaces.
One such mobilization will be done on 9th July , where the entire city will come out and plant trees, not only plant them but to make a commitment to care for then and participate in their growth. This dear citizens of Belgaum is our “One day for Belagavi “.
The good news is that if you don’t have a place to plant a tree , we will give it to you , we will also give you the plant , all you need to do is adopt the plant as your own , plant it and take care of it like it is your own child. We are sure the tree will give you a lot in return when it grows up.
Just get out there with your family and friends and plant a tree , take care if it and watch the little oxygen factories grow Infront of your eyes.
What more you can even give your family name to the tree and when your kids grow up they can sit in the shade of the tree and remember the lobe with which you went together on the ninth of July and planted that contribution to the city of Belagavi. So what are you waiting for?. Let’s forget everything else in this day and join on for the first stand taken by the citizens of Belagavi , we are the creators of our own future.
