Isn’t widening of roads equally important as saving a Chinar is? Yes there’s definitely a need to conserve the Chinar. While everyone’s harping against the move for whatever reasons, few are coming up with alternatives.
And if there’s no alternative which is the way it’s how is saving a tree better than inconvenience of thousands on the road every day. Yes, it takes so many decades to grow. Why can’t we plant more chinars instead. While I’m delighted to see the good number of people standing up against the move, I hope a few turn up to plant Chinar saplings too.
PS: March 15 is observed as the Chinar Day.
