Green Record in India !
Just today morning, I was browsing through the latest December issue of the ‘Wisdom’, monthly digest, and one particular article caught my eye, which I would like to share with all of you.
The ‘Cold Desert’ of Leh entered the Guinness Book of World Records after
50, 300 saplings were planted at a village in an hour by 9000 volunteers on October 10, 2010.
The ‘Green Action’ was supported by Buddhist monks to mark the ‘green’ Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
The earlier record was held by Peru, where 40,000 saplings were planted in 60 minutes by 8,000 volunteers.
