Sir,

I would like you to kindly let me ventilate my concern at the indiscriminate felling of trees in my locality through kind inclusion of this letter in the page of your daily.

I live at Barasat. Jessore Road connects us with Bangladesh. Alongside this historical road, there are numerous age-old precious trees like teak, mahogany, banyan, sirish and many others. Recently, for the expansion of the road, these trees are being cut thoughtlessly. Some three hundred such trees have already been felled. It is not only damaging to the environment but to our heritage as well. It seems to me to be as criminal as mass-killings in different parts of the world

I think, there are technologies to transplant even grown-up trees. Why shouldn't we take resort to that? Trees cannot speak. And is it not our duty to speak for them? 

                                                                                                                                             Thanking you,

                                                                                                                                            Yours faithfully,

                                                                                                                                                Krishna Das
