Cycling Enthusiasm clubbed with the Love of Nature. The seeds of Nature-loving is in our everybody's hearts. The need is to give it right time, place, atmosphere, nurturing and company to result into a Beautiful Tree of Peace and Compassion.
Vadodara Cycling Club visited the residence of Aqaa Maulaa Saiyedna saheb (tus) at Vasna Road, Vadodara to have a close look at fruits-vegetables growing in a pesticide-free means i.e. organic method. Planting a single tree by everyone of us is enough to maintain the health of our only Mother, the Earth. This was the club’s 454th trip and was celebrated by distributing Sparrow House Boxes meant for its nesting. We know that our humble house sparrow is heading towards extinction and its existence is endangered due to the lack of habitat and to some extent the adverse effect of mobile towers. By mounting such boxes in our balconies we can help sparrows in nesting and breeding.
Also, Mukaasir Maulaa gifted a Barmasi plant to every cyclist with a hope that our connection with plants is inevitable and perpetual. Freshness of our Morning, Walking on the roads, Beauty of gardens, Taste of our food, Shadow against blazing sunlight, Fervor of our festivals, Fragrance of our Home, Strength of our furniture etc. is only because of Trees. Today the road of progress and development is built on the graveyard of Trees. The sense of respect is required towards Trees and this feel will become alive when we plant a sapling with our hands and see it growing and bestowing us with beautiful flowers. We should bear in mind that our survival is due to the survival of Trees.
VCC core members were honored with shawl and they humbly requested all the cyclists to help each other in saving and improving our environment. With natural atmosphere we could sure make our behaviour, health and habits robust and sturdy. Mukaasir Maulaa’s sons Kumail and Sudair welcomed VCC group by reciting a poetry and daughter Zahraa applied ‘Etr on the wrist of every mehmaan.
