There is this wonderful joy in leaving behind the noisy city’s  streets and walk out to a corner in the Aarey Milk Colony where the deep blue sky and the swaying shadow cast by the trees and plants are a feast to the eyes….where the dew drops tickle & tease you, sliding down the leaves and falling on your face….where plants say nothing but gentle winter breeze rustles your hair and whispers sweet nothing in your ears…….where the morning sun rays, tiptoeing through the trees, cajoling the butterflies to open their wings and dazzle your eyes with its bright colors…….where the tall grand old trees of Sita Ashok, Kailashpatti, Vad, Desi Badam, Tad, Imali, Kate Sawar, Asan have hundreds of secrets to share, stories to tell……where the flowers of Torenia, Barleria, Belparis and many more, blooming to their heart content, sending whiff of fragrance around………telling the ignorant…….let this grandeur & serenity be as it is……..allow us to speak…….allow us to be heard……..come & touch us to feel our heart……….look up at us and read in our eyes, our thoughts & your future……..because we are the future of you and your many generations on this earth……

Day by day it is becoming very difficult to save the forest of Aarey Milk colony…… the uniqueness of Aarey is in its plants…..(trees, shrubs, herbs)………and their flower tells the tale of this uniqueness…. so as a tribute to its beautiful forest, we invite you all to take a Tree Appreciation Walk with us in Aarey Milk Colony at the VIP Guest House on 20th Nov,16

Dear Friends,
Last few days have been hectic for most of us………आज के हालात कुछ ऐसे है…
पैसे के जुगाड़ मे,
लगा है सारा जग.
TV बंद है, पडाई बंद है,
बंद हैं सारे झगड़े.
खड़े है हम सब लाईन मे,
ATM sir के सामने.
२०००के नोट देखने,
तरस रही है अँखियाँ.
क्या ग़लत है क्या सही है,
ऊपर वाला जाने.
इस इतवार को Tree Walk है हमारी,
Aarey आना न भूलें!!!!
I have attached the list of the trees which we will be showing you all…….do come and enjoy the green space of Aarey with us……..some learning, some solace from ATM Sir😂
