The Declaration of 17,066.49 Acres of KDH Area as Reserve Forest

The declaration of 17,066.49 acres of KDH area as reserve forest is the best thing that could have happened in Munnar. This was a long overdue process. We congratulate Forest Minister Benoy Viswom and the officers at the top echelons of the forest department for the ceaseless efforts that they have made to make this demand from environmentalists come true. It is actions like this that are the need of the hour.

Stale things like my tree, your tree, their tree are Ok to garner attention for some time. They pale in to insignificance in the long process. It should not be the number of seedlings that matter. What matters should be the seedlings that grow on to become trees. I am sure that if all the seedlings that were planted to date had grown to become trees we would have needed dredging the Arabian Sea to find the required land. So go for quality instead of harping on clich├ęd words and sentences. 

We wish you the very best in your endeavours.

Good one. The Kerala forest minister deserves kudos for saving the area. But his antics with my tree et al is a turn off. Desist from cheap things like my tree, your tee and concentrate on real beneficial work forest minister
