Trees are the life-line for existence. Their contribution to the well being and sustenance of the world is unquestionable. Today our country’s forest cover is depleting at an escalating pace. Pollution is a fast-rising problem, water resources are vanishing and our flora and fauna are facing total annihilation.
Our ancient system of revering and respecting every creation on the universe as sacred wasthe most effective way of ensuring their protection. Each temple had Stala vrikshas that were planted andnurtured in these sacred spaces in accordance with the presiding Deity, the geography of the land and the scientific need of the place and its people. Each temple had a Nandana Vana that was a garden of trees, flowers, creepers and plants that were needed for temple worship. Nandana Vana’s hardly exist today.
The concept of Devara Kaadu / Sacred groves especially in Karnataka and Kerala have helped preserve bio-diversity to a great extent.
TSD Regularity Run Car Rally
.It is a motor sport that can be enjoyed by anyone with virtually any sort of motor vehicle. Not to be confused with PRO rallying, which is a form of racing, Regularity Run is a course-following event involving control of vehicle speed. Competitive teams comprise of a driver and navigator utilizing a set of instructions detailing the course they must follow and the speeds they must travel. Since public roads are used for those events, speeds are set at or below the posted legal speed limits. The goal is to follow the course correctly and arrive on time at checkpoints encountered along the way. Scoring is based on the difference between the competitor’s actual arrival time versus their calculated arrival time at the checkpoint.
These events provide rallying thrills as well as promote safe driving habits.
