The Delhi Greens Effect


The Hindustan Times, a leading National daily has thought it appropriate to put the ‘labelling of trees and loss to Delhi Greens’ story on its cover page.

This is what HT has to say –

the delhi greens effect_news report about trees being mindlessly labelled in the campus

HT has investigated the mindless way of labelling the trees by the University Engineering Office without consulting either the School of Environmental Studies or the Botany Dept. both of which are just about 500 meters away from the site of tree labelling and not far from the Engineering Office itself.

  1. Great going!! You’re warriors!
    You’re a great inspiration – keep our spirits high, you keep us going 🙂
    Great job, Govind!

  2. It is strange that the authorities let this happen. back when i was in school, i was taught that one should not nail the trees. This is even more shocking and brutal. I think the univ staff which did this bunked a lot of school classes to not know the importance of the bark to the trees. This is actually shameful.

       A caterpillar spotted just outside the School of Environmental Studies, Delhi University. Apparently it belongs to the Common Jay species of butterfly. Butterflies are just another component of DelhiGreens that are supported by the lush greens of the (Delhi University) campus! FacebookTweetLinkedInEmail
