The damage afflicted on a garden by nadaan maali far exceeds than any known living being.

I had planted a new fruit tree (probably from Bangladesh), the next day it vanished. I was kept on looking for it, found it in the garbage. It turned out that maali sahab thought that is a wild NEEM tree. Height of over confidence!

Arif sb you must read "Naam Dev Maali" by Dr. Abdul Haq. A nice story of a Mali who sacrified his life for a garden he loved.

Best avoid plastic pots due to heat build up. The benefit is that there is less evaporation so less need for watering compared to clay pots.
