The nawabi celebrations continue...

Taimur Ali Khan's first birthday celebrations started with a horse ride and a tractor drive.

The Pataudi palace, Bhopal, saw Taimur's family party in style.

 

We saw Taimur's adorable pictures, now take a look at the adorable chottu nawab's celebrations:

Guess what Taimur got as a birthday gift from mommy's nutritionist? A forest in Sonave!

Rujuta goes on to give us a details of the forest:

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 1,000 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 sitaphal, 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 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 #taimuralikhan
