Dear members,

This is really great and one more feather in the crown of efloraofindia. Frankly speaking if we work at this pace (although my contribution has been too low these days), we will certainly achieve to record 10,000 more plants soon. Special regards to Garg sir and also to Gurcharan sir and each and every member who has contributed.

just saw this
well done

Journalists always garble up something
and create trouble in family  or office

even if they are one's own relative!!!

that's why some of my friends were talking about a reverse release form (like the one they make you sign)  a short sign up sheet for the journalist
and make them sign it and the accompanying  photographer..
that no facts will be garbled up for sake of sensational writing or abbreviating the story. If needed  they will cut short the write up entirely.
