“The whole idea of the Pushpotsav is to make people aware of the environment. The motive is to imbibe a sense of environment protection in them and make them feel how life is with the plants surrounding them. The event has been organised to spread awareness about nature protection and conservation. It is mandatory for the tree authority committee to organise such flower show to spread environment protection message to the world. The flower show in Nashik is one of the best in the country.”
