R. K. Nagar’s community has been slowly creating a green neighbourhood in one end of R A Puram.
Now, it is planning something different – setting up bonsais by the pavement side.
Ramkumar M. Krishnan, one of the residents here is the secretary of Bodhi – The Chennai Bonsai Association.
He has a large collection of bonsai on his terrace and is working with his colleagues in R A Puram to create lots of bonsais using species that are suitable to the Chennai climate.
Ramkumar says this art can be easily learnt.
Individuals interested to learn basic techniques of styling, trimming, shaping and potting can attend a beginner’s workshop being held on Dec 3 by Bodhi – The Chennai Bonsai Association. Ramkumar will be there.
