103 year old lady, Saalumarada Thimmakka (Kannada: ಸಾಲುಮರದ ತಿಮ್ಮಕ್ಕ) who has planted 383 plants, and she was also recognized by PM Modi for her work is hospitalized. Ironically, government has no funds for her treatment. Saalumarada is an Indian environmentalist from Karnataka and she has been recognized for her work in planting 384 Banyan trees along a four kilometre stretch of highway between Hulikal and Kudur. Her work has been honoured with the National Citizen's Award of India. A U.S. environmental organisation based in Los Angeles and Oakland, California called Thimmakka's Resources for Environmental Education is named after her.
It's really sorry state so much projects named and so many things have been budgeted on environment in her name. Simple fact is No Government has kept fund for her health care . Presently his son Umesh Vanasiri is taking care of her has confirmed no help has been received from any government.
