Plantation in Masoodpur, Vasant Kunj Park

This is Park of my village – Masoodpur in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. I’m retired from the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, M/o Industry, Udyog Bhawan in 2008. Since then I have been planting every rainy season.

Most of the plants have been taken from Delhi Parks & Gardens Society, ITO. Address and telephone number are already on the Mission Green Delhi platform. Some decent Companies have been kind enough to plant in this park. I will feel obliged if someone seeks my help. A big part of Vasant Kunj is on the land of my village. Prior to I worked with my father in the fields.

Bonsai Vs Trees, What Delhi Thinks

Delhi Citizen1: Bonsais are cute and small like a puppy but we need big trees. I just can’t understand why they are priced so high.

You care for them for years and all you get is a puppy size tree. That’s all. Waste of time and money. Plus if it would have been sown into the ground, many people could have enjoyed its luxury today.

Delhi Citizen2: Still, they are sold just for style and looks.
That’s good.
You should decorate your home.
But I hate them. That’s my personal opinion.

Delhi Citizen3: Bonsai trees require proper water, care, trimming, and fertilizing to be healthy. Constantly caring for your plant can help develop your patience. Working with nature, including bonsai trees, can help you become a more peaceful person

Delhi Citizen2: If you are planting a bonsai it may be giving you patience, but if the same bonsai is allowed to be free and be a tree, it can give shelter to live.

Watching a tree growing up also required patience. Though its needs decrease with time.

Doesn’t matter if you hate them whether it’s a bonsai or a puppy…Both are very precious for the person who cradle/feed them…Respect others to get respect from others be it any living being.

Delhi Citizen1: No hate intended for any certain individual. Not for the bonsais. But at that moment, I wasn’t able to keep my emotions inside. Sharing my views only, if you like or not like, I just don’t care.

Delhi Citizen2: So as others….Lord Rama appreciated even a tiny squirrel who contributed by adding little soil and small pebbles in building the bridge by rolling over in soil and dipping in the sea….So appreciate every creature who has contributed even a small part in nature and start caring for others…Don’t care attitude won’t work as nature can’t stop caring for everyone

Delhi Citizen1: Growing bonsai is against the natural growth of plants, its a kind of little torture to these plants which restricts their growths. 🙏🏻 It’s not natural

Delhi Citizen2: Yes… it has medicinal … in Assam, it used as pox prevention during ritu…. smoke of drumstick used as anti-biotic and

But still you can’t hate any living being…Hate the act and not the creature

Delhi Citizen1: Alright I hate the act. I just couldn’t put them in words earlier. Restricting someone to achieve greater heights just to maintain them as miniatures are what I am against to.

Delhi Citizen2: Bonsai is an innovation by itself…. it is not an abuse
