Post-Cyclone Retreat

Lini had inherited the same plot of land where she and her grandfather had planted lot of trees.

It was now a mini dense forest that had many memories.

There was a freshwater lake in the premises.

"Implement your ideas, my star!" her grandfather often encouraged.

Lini wanted the area to be 'The Retreat Next Door'. 

She wanted to gift their city a natural getaway with boating and restaurant services.

She had made all arrangements when a cyclone played spoil-sport.

Have you planted a tree? What would you do if you had a big plot of land?


  1. Well done Lini!

    I've not planted a tree, but if I could, I would.

  2. A great idea, and I like it more than boating and restaurant services.

  3. That's how life should be. We can't change fate but turning a calamity into learning can change the world. I can't stop myself from quoting Japan here. The nation is an incredible example we must learn from.

  4. What an ingenious way to make the best out of a bad situation.
