The city’s gar­dens are all set to look greener with up­graded fa­cil­i­ties as the gar­den depart­ment of the Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (NMMC) has un­der­taken var­i­ous mea­sures to in­tro­duce new ameni­ties and en­hance the look of the ex­ist­ing gar­dens.

With new themes un­der its green projects, the NMMC’s has be­gun work to re­de­velop the gar­den at Sec­tors 3 and 4 in Kopar Khairane are un­der­way.

“The gar­dens will be re­de­vel­oped with a Navras theme which ex­presses the nine forms of hu­man emo­tions. New ameni­ties such as sit­ting ar­range­ments, play ar­eas and light­ing will also be added, ” said Chan­drakant Tayde, head of the gar­den depart­ment, NMMC.

Stat­ues based on the nine emo­tions will be in­stalled at the gar­den. “Ac­cord­ing to an­cient lit­er­a­tures, know­ing the nine ‘rasas’ helps un­der­stand why a cer­tain mood comes and stays even though its orig­i­nal cause may be long gone. Thus, the the­me­based gar­den will have an artis­tic touch,” he said. Ac­cord­ing to the plan, the re­vamped gar­dens will be open to the pub­lic within a month.
