Focus of this book is not on tree planting as one may mistake but on generating abundant organic raw materials to be used in cottage, village, mini and micro enterprises. It is basically a guide for village entrepreneurs, social workers and multinationals which have to spend in India two percent of their net profit on public welfare and social activities. Gautama Budha said, TO BE A GOOD BUDDHIST ONE SHOULD PLANT SEVERAL TREES IN ONE'S LIFE TIME. This book tells what trees to plant to get many and more benefits out of them for human welfare. Plants and trees, weeds and reeds give the ten 'Fs' needed by people, namely, food, fruits, fodder, fibre, furniture, fertilizer, firewood, fresh-air, fresh-water, fabrics and more. Says the author : “PLANTS AND TREES CAN LIVE WITHOUT PEOPLE BUT PEOPLE CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THEM”. This book explains several medicinal plants as well and their uses and recommends cultivation and propagation of halophytes which grow in sea or saline water; 1560 species have already been identified by the university of Arizona. Humanity can survive by exploiting the sea and the saline tree. Water hyacinth which the author calls, GREEN GOLD, and many other aquatic weeds and reeds are given due importance in the book. Mushrooms, Soya beans, Salicornia and a score of other similar plants are recommended to change the face and economy of rural areas, especially in India, Africa and all under developed and developing countries.
