      Dear Shashi !

      It is indeed very sad to know that people , because of their idiosy , stoop
      to such low levels and commit such heinous crimes . That too in a land where
      each and every plant is worshiped as a fellow living being !

      But don't feel let down !
      "Arise , Awake and Tire Not !!"
      Arise like a phoenix bird and start again.
      NF is akin to Mahatma Gandhi's Sathyagraha and be patient.
      Nature will come to your rescue.

      I too am a victim of such an act.

      In my village house , I planted a "Nandhyavattai " (Moonbeam flower) sapling
      which grew into a big tree and was giving bountiful of flowers daily . The
      tree was just in the front yard of my house and there was always people
      movement day and night. Still some miscreants managed to sneak in and and
      looted the front CFL bulb and smashed it into pieces and threw the residual
      poisonous mercury powder at the root of the tree . When I went to my village
      after a gap of a month I saw the tree dead with no leaves and greenery. I
      got so wild that simply I could not control my anger and scolded everybody
      in the vicinity .

      But still I had a hope and tended the tree , cleaned the root zone from the
      CFL debris and gave water just for two days where after I had to return to
      Chennai . But last week I went to my village and reached my house at about
      10.30 PM and my first action was to see the tree. The tree surprised me by
      showing its little and tender leaves . Since it was dark I could not see
      much and went to bed. The next morning the first thing I did was to see the
      tree and was greeted by the tender green leaves . Immediately with much joy
      I kissed the plant and for three days I watered it with much love and
      affection.

      So don't think that the trees are gone. The will spring back to life and I
      hope to get the good new from you.

      Good luck.

      Boovarahan S
