....and most of the sign boards are on trees nailed to trees with huge nails that might damages the tree. We had to fought with several people to avoid nails on trees to use sign boards. Still, if you travel through the ghat road between Calicut to Kalpetta (Waynad, Kerala) one can see nailed sign boards by Forest department. One such sign board says "dont kill me"!

Giby

Ushadi and Giby ji, you are right. "dont kill me" is just perfid.
There should be some way of fixing the board to the tree instead of nailing it. Otherwise the board itself may disappear. Is it possible that a petition signed by several people / NGOs can be handed over to the forest dept.?

Ushadi,
it makes me sad too, but it is not only in India. Certainly it is not a solace. I visit the garden for Blind in Bremen from time to time. There is a board,"Please do not take away the plants."
