City : Pondicherry
Team : Chennai Trekking Club
Location : Krishna Nagar and Moola kulam
Planted Saplings : 50

Writeup by Anchana : To have a lush green nature and to help our future generations to have a pollution free environment we the volunteers along with CTC have made again an attempt in planting tree saplings at Pondicherry university. With  Kannan and Malan were the organizer about 14 members gathered in the venue ie. Thiruvalluvar stadium, Pondicherry University by 9AM, though we had plans to start the event by 7.30AM. Along with well known faces of the organization there were also new members who joined hands in this event and made it a successful one. Even though the event started a bit late with sun tanning our skin silently and trying to make us tired we didn’t feel so because of the jokes cracked in between and by the funny talks. As energy drink, the organizer arranged for lemon juice and butter milk for which we had friendly arguments as who drank almost all the drink. 

In middle of all this fun we planted about 40+ saplings and watered it, and the event came to end by 12.30PM. After this we had an interaction session where all the members introduced themselves in which a person from the NGO vazhai and another person who is a member of…… shared their views about the event. Also we had discussions about the future events. Finally we all went to juice shop and dispersed from there with a strong message imprinted in our minds to save our mother earth.
