Bangalore: In an endeavor to save nature, Saaket Ram Kavuri, a second grade student from Trio World Academy has planted around 34 saplings recently of myriad varieties in CV Raman Nagar, Ulsoor Lake and Rajarajeshwari Nagar. The Trio kid who is seven years old has a very clear life goal that he wants to be a gardener when he grows up.
Saaket embarked on his green mission when he was four years old, on his visit to his grandmother. Saaket spent hours in the garden watering plants, pulling out the weeds and plucking vegetables. Saaket thinks that lake beds would be an ideal place for the plantings with the gradual crunching of the city space and cut down on greenery to support accommodation.
Speaking on Saaket’s initiatives Mr. Naveen K M, Managing Director, TRIO World School said, “Trio always ensures its students to learn new skills, have fun, play and develop self-confidence. By spending time in the garden, tending plants and growing their own food, students will learn to respect and preserve nature. We in Trio encourage our students in activity based learning and we believe that it is everyone’s duty to preserve Mother Nature that supports life.
“After my studies, I want to become a gardener and take care of all the trees. I want to live in a place which is full of greenery. People are cutting trees and the city’s greenery is getting lost. This is why I want to plant saplings and take care of them”, adds Saaket.
Mr. Anant Kavuri father of Saaket says,” We leave Saaket on a free hand and support him on all his needs. We believe devoting children in gardens changes lives not only for the kids, but for the school, families and the community. ″
Saaket regularly visits the area to nurture the saplings. Whenever he goes, he waters the plants and ensures that the fencing is intact. He also engages in gardening at his apartment complex and invites his friends to join in. He wants to pursue his passion in his leisure or during vacations.
