By Arundhati Venkatesh
Thirty kilometers from Mekhri circle, is 300 acres of pristine nature.
Just an hour’s drive from home – so near and yet… far from the madding crowd.
Farm fresh vegetables.
Riding into the wind, with a three year-old’s soft arms and face pressed against me.
The grasslands. Enjoying nature, relaxing and fooling around with the sheep and goats.
The last remaining grasslands in the region – let’s take a pledge to save it. Say NO to the proposal for a commercial theme park/film city.
