Most Mantri residents missed out on Saturday's cozy family-like social gathering. The occasion was community tree-planting. Advik, barely six months, marked his presence on clubhouse poolside as his mother Anuja planted a mango tree named after Advik, the second child to be born at Mantri Synergy. His sister Aadya, experienced in tree-planting, was there to help her mom do the planting.
Sunday Santhai, a club for like-minded Mantri residents to trade ideas, info. and unvarnished gossip, thought of the tree-planting 'do' with a twin agenda - 1) to insure sympathy/support of the community for our crazy plans; and 2) to get some shade on the poolside lawns with tree-planting.
Mr K Santharam (left in the photo) citing a Balachander movie (which one, would you know ?) writes - It is not necessary that you should leave only your children after death. You can leave trees as well. They will live for several years like your children and the posterity will ever remember you.
Thank you, Mr Santharam (A-202) for giving a lofty edge to an idea by 'a crazy foursome' that met at our first Santhai.
