<b>๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŠ</b><b> Embracing Mangrove Day 2023 ! </b><b>๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒฟ</b>

Early this morning, Mukut Biswas, executive director of Prameya Foundation texted us. Hereโ€™s what he said, โ€œOn the special occasion of Mangrove Day, we are excited to share a wonderful initiative taken by our Prameya Pathshala! ๐ŸŒฑ Each of our young learners has been gifted two Mangrove propagules, lovingly named and allocated in their care. ๐ŸŒฑ They will nurture these propagules daily, witnessing the remarkable journey from propagules to flourishing saplings.โ€

For those of us who arenโ€™t botanically trained, mangroves have truly unique reproductive strategies. They are viviparous which means they bear live young just like mammals. Instead of producing dormant seeds the way most flowering plants do, mangroves put out propagules through the water in various stages of development while the propagule is still attached to the parent tree. When it detaches, it remains in the water and continues to grow. If it โ€œlandsโ€ in a promising area, the primary roots and leaves begin to emerge.

On a frivolous note, the mangrove propagule turns up in Minecraft as well. In the game, it appears in Mangrove swamps with enormous canopies and aerial root systems. For quality-of-life-cool-factor, these propagules can be planted on both land and in water.ย 

Mukut explained how Mangrove Day works. โ€œThis endeavor serves a dual purpose- Not only our little environmentalists will develop a deep sense of purpose and motivation to safeguard our precious Mangroves, but they will also experience the magic of the germination process firsthand. ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ

โ€œAt Pathshala, we believe in holistic growth and development, and our kids' performance matrix isn't limited to academics alone. ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŒณ Their nurturing and dedication towards these saplings will also be evaluated, recognizing their efforts as responsible caretakers of nature.โ€

Mukut and all of Prameya invite Oceanbags and those who care about each other as well as our environment to stand together with these young change-makers who embark on this green journey. Clearly, they are the future guardians of our beautiful planet! ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒฑย 

We at Oceanbags applaud you, Prameya, and we join alongside in these beautiful efforts.
