Tree plantation drive on Hareli Teej
Chhattisgarh, which is also known as 'dhan ka katora' or 'bowl of paddy' has earned its title due to the deep relationship between farmers and nature. Here, agricultural festivals are celebrated with great enthusiasm. The occasion of Hareli Teej is one of the most important festivals for farmers throughout Chhattisgarh. Hareli is colloquially derived from a Hindi word haryali, meaning 'greenery'. This day is marked by farmers worshipping their tools and domestic livestock and exhibiting their gratitude for the greenery on earth. And this was the day we chose for our tree plantation drive.
