Shreya’s dad Munish Sharma, resident of the JP Nagar neighbourhood Brigade Gardenia Apartments, has "adopted" the saplings for a year. With careful nurturing, the saplings should have grown considerably by Shreya’s next birthday.

If everyone planted a sapling on her/ his birthday, we would have a billion trees in India every year!
