Who are some great Indians that most people have not heard of? by Aashifa R

Answer by Aashifa R:

This 105 year old mother from karnataka … proudly exclaimed as mother of trees

1948 was the year she started planting trees – 300 trees in her village initially – and more than 1000 banyan trees in karnataka

When she was 40 years old, she tried to kill herself (as she doesn’t have any children), which she miraculously survived …. now after 65 years she stood strong, protecting the mother nature

SHE IS A REAL HERO ….. she is Saalumarada Thimmakka – an honorable recipient of National Citizen's Award of India, and her name means row of trees …

These are some of her awards

  • Nadoja Award By Hampi University- 2010
  • National Citizen's award – 1995
  • Veerachakra Prashasthi Award – 1997
  • Honour Certificate from the Women and Child Welfare Department, Government of karnataka
  • Certificate of Appreciation from the Indian Institute of Wood Science and Technology, Bangalore
  • Karnataka Kalpavalli Award – 2000
  • Godfrey Phillips Bravery Award – 2006.
  • Vishalakshi Award by Art of living Organisation
