Taimur Ali Khan Receives Forest Named After Him As A Gift

Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Taimur Ali Khan are having the time of their lives and celebrating Taimur’s birthday in the Pataudi Palace, which is in Bhopal. Karisma Kapoor, her children Samaira and Kiaan as well as Kareena and Karisma’s mother Babita Kapoor have flown to Bhopal to ring in the birthday.
Kareena Kapoor’s nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar posted this picture on Instagram, telling us that she gifted this tiny forest for Taimur to grow up and play around. Her caption reads,

“A little forest for Taimur

A little boy can never have enough of birds, bees and butterflies and so we have put together a small forest as a birthday gift for the little big boy, Taimur, in Sonave.

It’s a special forest, one that thrives on intercropping and i hope that as he grows he too will thrive in and celebrate a diverse society. A society where people live together through and due to their distinctions.

The forest has about 100 trees on a 1000 sq ft plot. The trees are as young as Taimur, even younger actually, and each one of them is a local, native, climate resilient specie. It will be a forest of the super foods of the future. There are 3 jamuns, 1 jackfruit, 1 amla, 40 Bananas, 14 Moringas, 1 Kokum, 1 Papaya, 5 Seetaphal, 2 Ramphals, 2 Nimbu trees. Besides these it grows 3 different types of native pulses and many Mirchi, Ginger, Turmeric and kari patta plants. Not to mention the green leafy veggies and the genda phools that grow in between.

The forest is inspired by Padma Shri Subhash Palekar’s zero budget natural farming where one tree grows symbiotically off another and thus is thrifty on one’s pocket. The forest will become a home for pollinating agents like the butterflies, bees, birds and earthworms. It will help nurture the soil, fix back the nitrogen and minerals in the soil that it grows on, preserve the water table and look elegant and beautiful while doing it all.
Here’s to living sustainably!

Happy Birthday.

Isn’t it just the sweetest gift?
Earlier, Taimur was spotted riding a tractor and even horseriding with his family which is such an adorable sight!
This is the first time Taimur has visited his ancestral home and his family is making sure that he’s enjoying his experience to the fullest.
