Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Birthday Gift For Taimur Is Fit For A Royal

Social media was alight with images of the country’s favourite blue blood’s first birthday celebration. Taimur Ali Khan turned one on 20th December, sending one big collective ‘aww’ wave through our body. The young royal celebrated his day at the colossal Pataudi Palace with his family, who were ever so thoughtful in picking his birthday gift.

Mommy Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is a big believer in staying and eating healthy, along with her nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, who is one other preacher of nutritious eating, put together a sprawling present for the toddler. Making sure that the toddler has a healthy and happy journey ahead, the duo gifted Taimur a forest. No kidding. Not a fancy car, not new-age toys, not designer clothes, but a newly planted baby forest.

A little forest for Taimur A little boy can never have enough of birds, bees and butterflies and so we have put together a small forest as a birthday gift for the little big boy, Taimur, in Sonave. It’s a special forest, one that thrives on intercropping and i hope that as he grows he too will thrive in and celebrate a diverse society. A society where people live together through and due to their distinctions. The forest has about 100 trees on a 1000 sq ft plot. The trees are as young as Taimur, even younger actually, and each one of them is a local, native, climate resilient specie. It will be a forest of the super foods of the future. There are 3 jamuns, 1 jackfruit, 1 amla, 40 Bananas, 14 Moringas, 1 Kokum, 1 Papaya, 5 Seetaphal, 2 Ramphals, 2 Nimbu trees. Besides these it grows 3 different types of native pulses and many Mirchi, Ginger, Turmeric and kari patta plants. Not to mention the green leafy veggies and the genda phools that grow in between. The forest is inspired by Padma Shri Subhash Palekar’s zero budget natural farming where one tree grows symbiotically off another and thus is thrifty on one’s pocket. The forest will become a home for pollinating agents like the butterflies, bees, birds and earthworms. It will help nurture the soil, fix back the nitrogen and minerals in the soil that it grows on, preserve the water table and look elegant and beautiful while doing it all. Here’s to living sustainably! Happy Birthday. #taimuralikhan

Diwekar took to Instagram to share with her followers the 1000 sq. ft. gift that features greens that “are as young as Taimur, even younger actually, and each one of them is a local, native, climate resilient specie”, she wrote.

The forest, which packs “superfoods of the future”, has 3 jamuns, 1 jackfruit, 1 amla, 40 Bananas, 14 Moringas, 1 Kokum, and 1 Papaya among many others. There are also a number of native pulses and spiced to keep the young Nawab well-fed and fit.

Now that’s something fit to be gifted to royal!
