The youngsters who saved seeds of the mangoes that they ate this summer, have used them to grow around 180 mango saplings. Now, they are planning to distribute these saplings as part of State government’s Haritha Haram progamme.

The efforts of Dishita and Saharsh has won appreciation from various quarters. Their father, Rambabu Challa said the family regularly have been planning outings to places that are covered with greenery. “But due to the pandemic, we couldn’t move anywhere for the past year-and-half and my daughter came up with the idea of planting the seeds of the mangoes that they ate and grow greenery,” he said.

Dishita referred to YouTube for the germination process and started to sow the seeds which have sprouted into saplings. “I helped them in ordering vermicompost, cocopeat compost and manure online” Rambabu said.

Both the children were appreciated by MA&UD Minister KT Rama Rao for their green act and their awareness about green consciousness and he conveyed his wishes to them on Twitter.
