Balloons and red merchandise crowd shop windows, beckoning the viewer to a Valentine’s feast, we forward text messages, exchange gifts, plan elaborate and unforgettable dates. Amidst all this fanfare, we tend to forget Mother Nature; she who surrounds us, constantly giving us her love. ‘Nature our Valentine’ was the theme for the day at the Spice Yard at Ancestral Goa, Big Foot in Lotoulim where Valentine’s Day was celebrated with a twist. On display were different plants and trees along with their medicinal values. Guests were asked to tie ribbons around trees to establish their love for nature. The ribbons signified the symbiotic bond that humankind shares with nature. Jc. Ram Kumar Menon, Executive Vice President for Zone XI Comprising Goa and Part of Maharashtra, Mr. Mohan Sathe Zone President Zone XI and Mrs Patricia Mendonca Secretary of JCI Salcete Coastal and Members of JCI Salcete Coastal who visited Ancestral Goa also took part in the celebration, he said that this drive was an innovative and motivating way to promote such a noble cause.
