Mother of Trees, 2020
Saalumarada Thimmakka's inspiring work with banyan trees, is a testament to the human spirit's capacity for love and care. It's a reminder that even a single person can make a profound impact on the environment, and each tree planted is a legacy of life and shade for generations to come. Thimmakka's dedication teaches us that nurturing nature is not just a responsibility but a soulful connection to the Earth, a legacy of love that transcends time and leaves a greener, more vibrant world for all.
The 107 year-old environmentalist is often referred to as "Mother of Trees." For me, this is what an ideal ancestor looks like.
