Dehradun, 21 Mar: World Forestry Day was celebrated today by Agape Society in the premises of RTO, Rishkesh.

People present at the programme expressed their views on the importance of forests in people’s lives.
Dr SN Mishra (Ped Baba) spoke about the importance of trees and expressed concern that a time would come when people would have to carry oxygen cylinders on their backs if serious steps are not taken to protect and preserve the forests. The message was clear that more trees need to be planted.

Director of Agape Society Vikrant Bhandari also highlighted the importance of trees in his message. He made everyone aware about the fast degradation of forests and described the situation as alarming. He appealed to everyone to wake up before it is too late.
