Baby Taimur gets a forest as a gift on his first birthday


Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, the royal baby of Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan gets a forest as a birthday gift from her mom Kareena Kapoor Khan’s nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar. It is probably the best gift that Taimur received on his first birthday. If dad Saif Ali Khan gifted his little munchkin a swanky car worth Rs 1.30 crore on Children’s Day then the baby boy gets a forest on his first birthday, which is quite unconventional.

The forest is in the Sonave, a village on the outskirts of Mumbai. 

Rujuta Diwekar gave us a glimpse of the forest which has a cute board written ‘Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi’ with a cock. Sharing the picture, the nutritionist wrote# 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. undefined">#taimuralikhan
