This is the marriage of the Mahato family. Nisha, daughter of Chandrabhushan Mahato and Bhuvaneshwari Mahato, residents of Deepika, Korba district, was married to Swatantra Jaiswal, son of Bhagwat Jaiswal and Anita Jaiswal, residents of Balko. In this marriage, social worker Prashant Mahto gave 101 plants as a wedding gift to his sister, which includes many fruitful, shady plants.

This is how the idea came

Prashant Mahto explains that there are many reasons behind this idea, the main of which is trying to connect people emotionally towards climate change and environmental balance. Prashant said that the tradition of giving costly and useless gifts in the marriage ceremony should also be stopped. The gifts that people give, they either keep giving to each other or they become useless at some time. But a plant planted with passion, becoming a tree, will continue to emit oxygen by absorbing carbon dioxide for hundreds of years.

Had asked for old books in their marriage

During his marriage in 2017, Prashant Mahato appealed to bring new old books instead of gifts in the card. Prashant is trying to spur this trend through his group Charameti Foundation. Now in many cities, their organization also exchanges saplings in Dashgatra, Chhathi, etc. programs. In April 2018, in the marriage program of his other sister Manisha Mahato, only plants were given as a gift, so far Prashant has given plants at more than 172 marriage functions.
