“For every female child that’s born, the community gathers to plant 111 fruit trees in her honor in the village common. This unique tradition was first suggested by the village’s former leader, Shyam Sundar Paliwal, in honor of his daughter who had passed away at a young age.”

About D.Dinius

I am big on education, animals, and nature. So following that sentence I think it's important to be smart and animals and nature bring clarity and a calmness to things. I am new to actually paying attention and having opinions. This has been building well for about the last year. :)

  1. Truly an awesome idea. Good to celebrate females in yet another male-dominated society. That village is on it and so forward- thinking!
