It is a milestone!!!
Jhatkaa.org partnered with veteran fashion designer and activist Wendell Rodricks to save six 200-year-old mango trees in Colvale, Goa, that were to be felled as part of the NH66 highway expansion project. The campaign went viral and over 4,500 citizens added their voice to the movement. A few days later, transport minister Ramkrishna Dhavalikar spoke up for the preservation of these trees: "Some of these trees predate our grandparents. We will not permit anyone to touch those trees, neither engineers nor contractors nor consultants."
