What an idea!

How fruit trees in Indian village save girls' lives

What an amazing concept! Poverty, female foeticide and global warming all dealt with in a single blow!
Read this story about a village in Bihar where they have a tradition of planting 10 frut (mostly mango) trees when a girl child is born... by the time daughter's grown up, the family's rich!

Plus, they've written that this village stands out with its dense tree cover amidst an otherwise arid landscape - REFORESTATION!
Wow, what an idea!
