Mantri Synergy's first resident, Mr Nambiar (G-001) who moved here in February last year.
The two teaks behind Nambiar's neem are sentenced to a slow death by Mantri project team, which has coffined the teaks in concrete.
Had Mantri managers on site been aware of Ms Snehal Mantri's commitment to save trees they wouldn't have done such thing. To refresh their memory we refer them to The Hindu dated Jan.12,2008 which published the write-up - The right move to save trees. The media reports quotes Ms Mantri as saying, When MDPL took over the land on OMR at Chennai, the entire area looked so green we had second thoughts about building Mantri Synergy there. We then thought of transplantation. There were a total of 165 coconut trees, 24 mango trees and around 140 teak wood trees spread there, and we managed to save 90% of the trees.
I don't suppose Ms Snehal Mantri would be pleased to see the plight of the teak near STP plant in our complex (see photo). The issue came up at Mantri's Memorial Service held last Sunday on site where Mantri project team had slaughtered three coconut trees.

The digging will be followed up with a 15 minute walk-around in the Mantri complex, to get an idea of the number of teaks and other trees Snehal Mantri has saved - out of a total of 140 teak,165 coconut, and 24 mango trees they found when Mantri developers took over this farmland.
(Would someone arrange for a pickaxe and shovel, please ?)
