Meet Our Friends at Neralu

Bangaloreans - an exciting festival to celebrate trees is coming up! Neralu 2015 is back and we can spot a few familiar names on the schedule.
NERALU, meaning shade in Kannada, is a descriptive metaphor for our annual urban Tree festival and indicates what trees have meant to so many citizens of Bengaluru. Bangaloreans share historical, cultural and ecological stories and experiences because of trees that enrich our urban existence. NERALU is a way in which this can be celebrated, shared and reflected upon.
