While there are many things that we should be doing to save our planet (like planting trees, recycling, using public transport to cause less pollution etc) not many of us are ready to take an initiative.
However, one man in Telangana didn’t wait for others to do something and has single-handedly planted over 10 million trees. Meet Daripalli Ramaiah who is also known as Chetta Ramaiah.
He has made it a mission to bring back the green cover that has been lost due to urbanization. He calls seed as the solution for mankind to survive.
✔️In 2017, for this unhampered determination, he was awarded Padmashri — the third-highest civilian award
✔️awarded an honorary doctorate by the Academy of Universal Global Peace as well as receiving special recognition from the government of Andhra Pradesh. CM of Telangana also offered support through its green initiatives.
