'ARPAN' by AYUDH Pune was consecutively executed on the 5th year by AYUDHians at Pune on Amma’s Birthday. Amma once expressed a wish that everyone around the world should plant more trees and that it should be our foremost duty to lovingly care for all living things. It was Amma's dream that this could help imprint a deep bond with Nature in the coming generations.
AYUDHians planted 69 native tree saplings as part of converting a barren land to mini forest near Baner, Pune. ARPAN was launched in 2018 on Amma's Birthday and they continued the project every year in the same location. All AYUDHians said that, it has been wonderful to see the place full of greenery and the effort taken throughout the year is most cherished! They opined that, along with all other green initiatives undertaken by Pune chapter, this project is so close to their heart because this is their special offering to Amma on Her Birthday and they experience true JOY on this special day by doing this noble service!
