Tulsi, a resident of Honali village in Karnataka, was never able to go to school. Despite this, he gathered so much knowledge about plants and vegetation on his own that it came to be called the ‘Encyclopedia of the Forest’. He married at a very young age. When he was only 3 years old, his father passed away. He used to work in daycare with his mother from a very young age. From there, an attachment to trees and plants developed in his mind. It has planted more than 30 thousand trees and plants in the last 6 decades.
