Gandhi Jayanthi: Saying it with a sapling

We planted a neem at Mantri Synergy to commemorate Gandhi Jayanti,2011. Residents, Propcare management and the maintenance staff joined hands to make an occasion of this,the first Gandhi Jayanti Day to be celebrated at Mantri's.
The Gandhi Jayanti neem was planted a day before the event (Oct.1), as part of our community tree-planting programme. It was the second community-planting programme we organized in Mantri, with the pious resolve to have a community planting day every month. Yesterday, we planted six saplings on two locations. The Gandhi Jayanti sapling can be found on the greens around the well near E block.
