A village that plants 111 trees for every girl born in Rajasthan

Cheers for Rajasthan! They have the right idea and I love the notion of planting the trees. I don't know the significance of the number 111 ... anyone? They even teach the families save for the girl's future. They should be proud of their progress and hopefully the villagers aren't simply paying lip service but are gradually but surely changing their archaic mindset towards females. I hope so.

I didn't know that aloe vera repels bugs!
