The Sapling Project

When I am asked, “Aarti, how do you pass your free time??” first I wonder do I have free time??!!! And then the thought of me having a blog, me blogging and and my co-bloggers occupies the space making it lively!! Thus, last night when I was passing some of my leisure time in a very constructive manner… I read about The Sapling Project.

...and thought it would be just great to do some good deed on the occasion of Republic Day. So, after making three phone calls… I got a company on the fourth call I made to Amol. I was glad to have a “C” company and I’m sure even Amol was more than pleased!!

We caught the ‘sapling’ van at Shivaji Park and had an amazing 1.5 hours of time meeting new and enthu people, distributing saplings: ashoka and neem, and convincing people to plant them. Just loved it! It was our first time and I’m sure the next time would be more fun!! Hope many of you join too…


More info on The Sapling Project here.

You can also find it on FaceBook and Twitter.

Sharing some pictures of the fun we had today morning...

I like what is written on the website: "We don’t want to change the world or end economic sanctions in Zimbabwe, we are working towards a simple mission, to plant and share plant saplings to one and all in different parts of our city."

Started from a few...

... gradually moved on to many and more...

When we Go Green!

Happy Republic Day!!

Intoxicating exemplar of Food Design

I always admire packaging... especially that of chocolates. And I simply loved the packaging of these liqueur chocolates my brother got. Such a smart and striking design! Isn't it?!

Smocked Cushions

Made of one piece of fabric, I love to play with these smocked cushions. The silken maroon adds to the festive look. Through my average photographic skills this time, I have managed to take some ordinary pictures which I guess succeed in giving a smocking experience.
