Vanamosthava is a great concept, I have participated during my primary and secondary school days in 1970s and 1980s. If the programme is genuine and followed up, we should have forests all around DK and udupi districts, there should have been huge forests or green belt, which we don t see. When vanamosthava day comes, schools, religious leaders and politicians plant trees, no one looks at them until next years vanamosthava. In today s world, it is more for social media pics. Basically we are fooling ourselves. The deforestation is so rampant, I cannot imagine, on the other hand vanamanostava another exercise with out any changes on the ground for last 50 years, at least I know off.
