Thanks Dwarka Parichay : P.K. Datta, Naturalist

Dwarka Parichay Team

My moving away from Dwarka to Indirapuram this month end makes me nostalgic about the little I could contribute in the life of this beautiful sub-city which has been a focal point of our interaction some time or the other during my wonderful span of twelve years in the service of Mother Nature (2001 – 2012).

I am indebted to you for your personal support and the words of wisdom which lent guidance and culminated into my being able to summarily contribute to the well-being of the sub-city basically aimed at “Connecting People to Plants … for a sustainable living”.

I would request you to kindly appraise my performance on your own benchmarks by giving a glance to my activities listed overleaf by sparing a few moments of your precious time.

Certainly, all this would not have been possible without your active support always, be it, the Management of CGHS/RWAs, the Principals and Management of Schools, the Print & Electronic media, the Social Welfare Organisations, the Police, Horticulture and MCD and very specially the co-passengers and staff in different chartered buses who helped me in communicating my small handbills to the larger society as Ambassadors of Good Greenwill.

My love for this beautiful sub-city compels me to continue my work and affiliation here. I assure you of my availability at all times and be rest assured that I will be too pleased to be of any service to the cause of good-green-clean-environment of the sub-city. Let us continue to work harder and harder to make Dwarka, a city par-excellence!

Look forward to your continued support to my crusade “Dare to Dream …. Make Dwarka Green” and wishing you and your family Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Prosperous New Year and warm regards.

Dr. P K Datta
