Ecology park in Malpura Dadabadi

Echology in Kolkata Dadabadi
Pond in Kolkata Dadabadi

We are planning for an Ecology park in Malpura Dadabadi. In fact, Concept of environment and ecology is inbuilt in the concept of Dadabadi. The word "Badi" is derived from Sanskrit word "Batika" that means garden. Hence, the garden is an integral part of a Dadabadi. We can see the word "Temple Garden" in Kolkata Dadabadi. 

Temples and Dadabadis in Azimganj and Kathgola are nice examples.  Most of the older Dadabadis were built outside the township along with a garden.

Ahimsa, non-violence, is the basic principle of Jainism.  Jain believe in saving even tiny creatures. What about saving an entire species? Species conservation is most shouted slogan in the world. I always had a belief that Dadabadi can play a pivotal role in conserving species and environment. It will spread teachings of Lord Mahavira and Dadagurudev. Work speaks louder and words.

Hence, Sri Jain Shwetambar Khartar Gachchh Sangh, Jaipur is planning to develop a ecology park at Malpura Dadabadi. in fact, we have already started working on this direction. We will go for water conservation and plantation in the first phase. It will substantially add to water and oxygen resources.

We are in consultation with several agencies for design and development of the ecology park. First time in the world, a Dadabadi is being engaged in such work. We are putting our best efforts.

Your ideas can help us in developing it in better way. We welcome your suggestions. Co-operation solicited.
