Pomegranate Tree, an ancient beloved plant and fruit which had been planted last year by the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) in the premises of Brazil Embassy has started flowering which is very enthusiastic and happy moment for the family of Brazil Embassy.

Tovar Da Silva Nune, Ambassador of Brazil while speaking after planting a sampling of Guava tree in the premises of Brazil Embassy on Saturday said, “The usage of Pomegranate tree is deeply embedded in the human life and is famous as food and medicine remedy, so we would like to extend our thanks to NDMC for the valuable gift given to our Embassy.”

He said that trees not only provide shelters and food for many birds but also help in bio-diversity. He also added that more forestation and green cover in a community means increased pleasant surroundings and smooth effect on the body and mind.

"With such a pace of work of tree plantation the NDMC would likely to achieve its target of 10 lakh sapling fixed for the ongoing monsoon season," he said.
