Mumbai: Taimur Ali Khan is a blessed child. He is born with the golden spoon, and we can easily say so because even before turning a year old, the little munchkin is already the owner of a car, and now a forest.

Yes, Taimur now owns a whole 100 square foot forest to himself. This time the thoughtful gift wasn’t from his immediate family, but mommy Kareena’s nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar.

 

Rutuja has already gifted him the plot and named it as Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi Forest. The forest is quite a sight with super foods of the future.

The forest is inspired by Padma Shri Subhash Palekar’s zero budget natural farming, mentioned the nutritionist in her Instagram post. Here it is:

 

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. #taimuralikhan
