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.?
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."
