To mark her birthday, Jayanthi Sundar plants saplings in park

Alwarpet resident Jayanthi Sundar marked her birthday a little differently recently.

She and her husband Sundararaman bought a few saplings at a nursery in the Chitrakulam area of Mylapore, went down to the Chennai Corporation park at the end of Turnbulls Road and planted them there.

The duo said that they would have liked to plant the saplings in the neighbourhood of their residence but since they could not source water, they decided to opt for the park where the gardener helped them out.

Says Sundararaman, “If our example can inspire others to follow it will help our environment.”
