A nine-year-old girl from Kakching district of Manipur has been appointed as the green ambassador of the state after her video where she is crying went viral. Reason: Two trees planted by her were axed and the video went viral. The girl, whose name is Valentina, can be seen crying after two trees planted by her were cut down.
Her uncle posted the video on Facebook. According to the reports, when she was in class 1, she had planted two Gulmohar trees. But the trees were axed recently during a river cleaning drive.
Valentina reportedly said, “I planted that tree and I love it so much, it pains me so much to see them cut down.”
I felt so touched and emotional with this little girl from my hometown. "There is a big voice embedded on it, that I realized and later felt ashamed of myself, would I do the same if I was her??"After coming home from school, she found out that the two trees that she planted when she was in elementary school were cut down for road expansion. Crying and shivering she says she will plant more 20 trees in place of her lost attachments.
