Medical Test of a Tree?

In Salamatpur of Raisen, Madhya Pradesh (India), guards are deployed 24 hours a day to protect a tree. If even one leaf of it falls, the administration gets shaken. The tree is so important that it undergoes a medical checkup every 15 days. About 15 lakh rupees are spent every year in the maintenance of the tree. On September 21, 2012, former Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa planted the Bodhi tree.

Actually, it is a Bodhi tree. It was planted by the then President of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapaksa on 21 September 2012. It is protected because it has special significance in Buddhism. It is belived that  Lord Buddha got  enlightenment under such a tree. Not only this, Emperor Ashoka also went in search of peace with the help of this tree.

This tree is surrounded by nets 15 feet high. Two guards guard it for 24 hours, so that no one can harm the tree. Sanchi Municipal Council, Police, Revenue and Horticulture departments keep a constant watch on this. If even a leaf of this tree falls, the officials immediately reach the spot. After conducting a medical examination every 15 days, arrangements for manure and water are made.

Significantly, Sanchi is a tourist destination in Raisen district. Buddhist University was established here years ago. This Bodhi tree has been planted on the hill of this university. At that time, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was also present along with the then President of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapaksa. Till now the government has spent lakhs of rupees on the protection of this tree.

You have to come to Sanchi to see this tree. Sanchi can be reached from Bhopal and Indore. Sanchi is situated a ways off of around 50 km from Bhopal. There is no office to arrive at Sanchi via air. Rajabhoj air terminal in Bhopal is the closest air terminal.
