Bringing mango tree 'Payaswini' to plant in the yard of Govt UP School in Adukkath Bekal

Kasaragod: It's now time to wait for the tree to sprout, flower, and fruit with the sweetness of rebirth. Kasaragod on Wednesday witnessed a rare occasion. The mango tree planted by poet Sugathakumari 16 years ago got replanted 1.5kms away to Adukkath Vayal Govt UP school.

Hundreds of people witnessed the transplantation of 'Payaswini' tree, named by Sugathakumari. The process of uprooting the tree was successful after hours of work.

The tree was initially tried to lift after removing the soil and cutting off the branches but failed. Finally, the replantation was done to the new place using an excavator. The students, teachers, and parents welcomed 'Payaswini' at the Adukkath Vayal school entrance with flowers and cheers. The planting process was completed by 2 pm under normal weather conditions.

The Mathrubhumi Seed members of the Adukkath Vayal school were the first to raise voices to protect the tree after it was planned to be chopped down for the national highway development.

Seed members from different schools within the district, NSS volunteers from Govt college, Kasargod, Student police cadets from Govt higher secondary school, Kasargod and People's Forum accompanied the tree to the school.

The forest department employees, led by the social afforestation department, North region forest conservator R.Keerthi, Police officers led by DYSP P. Balakrishnan Nair, and labourers from the Uralungal Labour Contract Cooperative Society worked together to complete the process.
