Planting the Sapling
Planting the Sapling is a collection of poems composed by Dr. Govind Singh, a former Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at the University of Delhi. The poems were written by Dr. Govind Singh in his personal diary during his school days. They would have remained hidden from the world but for the inquisitive eyes of his students, when he took this diary to class for sharing one of these poems to help create a bridge between Environment and English. What followed is what led to the publishing of this book, which is a beautiful reminder of our adolescence days and will surely take you back to the best days of your school life. Dr. Govind Singh is currently Associate Professor of Environmental Studies at O.P. Jindal Global University.

The poem Nature's little magic tricks is very sweet and first introduced me to this book. Reading this book is like going on a fascinating journey of memories, school life, nature trailing, and societal upheaval. What is most valuable in all that is the learning for a young mind, and the necessary nudge in the direction of making a fulfilling life for yourself.
A good book to pass on to anyone who wants to be reminded of the good ol' school days and the time spent with the truest friends and most honest learning. Some of the poems are touching, others are simply mind blowing. An excellent read, and a collectible item as well.
