Turbaned Tornado please abdicate the throne. Samosapedia is giving the enthu cutlet lifetime achievement award to
Saalumarada Thimmakka who, over the course of her lifetime (she is over 70) planted 284 banyan trees along a four km stretch of highway in a small town in Karnataka.

Saalumarada means "row of trees” in Kannada— an honorific people have added to her name.

Usage

"For 25 years I could not conceive so we thought why not grow and nurture trees like our own children instead and thus started our campaign to grow trees. I used to work as a daily wage labourer and used the money from there to grow these trees. I would work in the morning and plant trees in the afternoon. Now they are all well grown,” says Thimakka
