Selfless soul

He is an ordinary person with a mission extraordinary. A retired govt. official K R Gurukar has passion for planting saplings on city sidewalks. He has been doing it on a daily basis for the last decade or more. He plants honge, a species suited to Mysore. Goats and stray cows don't fancy honge leaves, he says.
