Speaking at this event Chief Guest Shri. Putta Swamy Gowdru, ex -taluk board president said "Let us all be responsible citizens and wisely utilize our natural resources for the present and ensure happiness of future generations .We are blessed to be a part of a culture where living in complete harmony with the environment is central to our ethos . Appreciating the wisdom of planting saplings in stages he further remarked " it is not sheer numbers of sapling planted that is important but ensuring that all survive and thrive as healthy trees is, hence planting smaller numbers in 4 -5 phases to ensure survival by Soham does make good sense" . Remarking about the projects and the need for green energy, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Soham group, Mr. Sanjith S. Shetty said "we believe in taking a positive action towards improving our environment by planting tree saplings in and around our project sites as restoration of the environment affected due to construction activity. Last year 100 saplings were planted at SMPPL Project at Moodabidri and this year we are doing here at Mahadevpura SHP. Developing awareness among employees and associating future generations is one of our company objectives of this symbolic operation. I feel students if educated and made aware of the importance of protecting their environment, can be empowered to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development.
