Years of the mastering and teaching the Art of Bonsai paid off, for Bonsai master, Prajakta Giridhar Kale, as she finally got rewarded when she made an entry into the Guinness Book of World Record, for the largest display of Bonsai Trees. Currently, she owns a whopping collection of 3,333 Bonsai trees.
Actually, Bonsai is the art of growing certain shrubs and trees in small and shallow containers in such a way, that the plant is slowly shaped and moulded to appear similar to the older or mature tree. This art is still in its budding phase in India.
India, being the world’s largest marketplace of the world, can be the ideal ground for arts like Bonsai, to flourish by leaps and bounds. Sensing the same, Kale started a course that teaches Bonsai art.
Kale believes that Bonsai art can be a perfect earning source for the women belonging to the rural areas and even for youngsters of the country. The finance and Forest Minister of the state, Sudhir Maungantiwar also agreed with Kale and said that Bonsai art has a great potential to become a lucrative venture in India. He further assured that the forest department would work like hand in glove with her, to generate employment through Bonsai Art.
