We all know that Em­press Botan­i­cal Gar­den is amongst the most sig­nif­i­cant gar­dens i n t he re­gion. The well­land­scaped gar­den con­sists of lush green lawns, abun­dant flora and fauna, play area for kids and a snack shack. The park has a quaint stream of wa­ter flow­ing through­out the gar­den and is a de­light for na­ture lovers. There will al­ways be a tus­sle be­tween en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists and in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment, and the key is to en­sure that the bal­ance be­tween be­ing en­vi­ron­ment friendly and de­vel­op­ment con­ducive is al­ways main­tained. With the right plan­ning and im­ple­men­ta­tion mech­a­nism, and a gen­uine pos­i­tive in­tent, I am sure that we should be able to achieve the fine bal­ance in pre­serv­ing our frag­ile ecosys­tem, as well as build­ing the much-needed in­fra­struc­ture for our de­serv­ing of­fi­cers. We should thus fo­cus all our en­er­gies and re­sources to­wards en­sur­ing that Em­press Gar­den re­tains its nat­u­ral flora, which is of im­por­tance from a botan­i­cal per­spec­tive, thus con­tin­u­ing to at­tract the lo­cal and mi­gra­tory birds and boost­ing our ecosys­tem for gen­er­a­tions to come. This re­quires a pas­sion­ate team and self­less mo­ti­va­tion, which we should keep rec­og­niz­ing and sup­port­ing reg­u­larly through ini­tia­tives.
