“LET’S CELEBRATE PLANTATION AS A FESTIVAL, A GREEN CULTURE FOR THE HUMANITY – DURING EVERY RAINY SEASON – ACROSS THE GLOBE”
QUESTION: Can we adopt Colonies, Villages, Towns, Hills to Green under this Culture for Climate Change Initiative?!
Organizers: Shri Pawan K Kaushik, Scientist, Forest Research Centre for Livelihood Extension (FRC-LE) – Agartala with his team and Anil G, Lead – Volunteer from Plantation Festival Celebrations.
The Forest Research Centre for Livelihood Extension (FRC-LE) planned to introduce the concept of ‘Plantation Festival Initiative’ for Barkathal Village Cluster. The local community has also welcomed the idea and gave it a local name in Kokboroak language as “Bufang Kaimani Ter”.
Bufang Kaimani Ter (Plantation Festival) will be aimed to make a memorable plantation event for the village cluster so that they celebrate it during every rainy season and also demonstrate it to other villages every year. The whole event comprises of 4 phases: (i) Planting saplings, (ii) Eat a Meal together, (iii) Play Sports, (iv) Cultural Events.
Shri Kaushik said that, Bufang Kaimani Ter (Plantation Festival) will be an Ecologically Sensitive Cultural Intervention and will be led by the local community. Saplings will be arranged by FRC-LE; however entire event-coordination and post-plantation supervision will be taken care by the villagers. Next village level preparatory meeting is scheduled for June 30 to plan for the celebration of the Plantation Festival on July 5.

BACKGROUND: We see many people complaining about increasing temperature in hot summers but find least number of people, who make an effort for planting trees when rainy season arrives..! Why don’t we act, when nature gives us an opportunity to plant and survive? Shall we take the opportunity provided by the nature and also by our villagers in this rainy season to contribute to raise plantations?
QUESTIONS: Rainy seasons Come and Go but how many of us plant trees?! Are we crossing years as mile stones but forgot to go for planting trees as our responsibility?!! Ex: If we are 20 years old, we should have done plantation activities at least during every rainy season for the last 15 years!! Could we effectively used these rainy seasons to increase the green cover and ensure ecological security for our future generations?!
Plantation Festival is proposed to address this issue and celebrate planting trees as an act of ensuring “Ecological Security for the Future Generations”, besides establishing peace and uphold universal brotherhood in a joyful mood where entire village population is invited as a family to participate and contribute to the service of the mother nature for our sustainable future.
