I vividly remember that every city, town and village in my province Sindh was covered by amazing array of ancient trees and plants that added to the mystery and appeal of the province. Unfortunately, nowadays those trees have either been cut by the timber mafia, in connivance with the corrupt forest, revenue, irrigation, and police department officers, or have dried up. Water seems to be scarce in the province and most of the lakes, springs and streams have dried up thus there is no water to save these plants and trees anymore accentuating the importance of plants for humans and animals we need to replant. I would like to request everyone to grow plants as well as the concerned departments to take pragmatic steps, including proper water arrangement for plants and trees, to save plant, flora and fauna in the province. HASHIM ABRO,
