TBI Blogs: The Hands That Nurture Delhi’s Famous Lodhi Garden

Delhi I Love You - Delhi, I Love You is an independent socio-cultural movement of love in the city. A heady mixture of history, environment, art, music and social initiatives, the movement is aimed at celebrating the city through an extensive programming of collaborative projects.

After meeting the gardeners at Lodhi Garden and hearing their stories full of passion, love  for the trees, and disappointment towards a few insensitive visitors, we finally found our next #DelhiHeroes characters to represent the gardener community.

Meet Rohtash Sharma, the proud maali of Delhi’s beloved Lodhi Garden. Rohtash has worked there for 15 years, beginning as a young maali, all the way up to becoming a landscaper at Lodhi Garden. He is a parent, friend, and even a doctor to the trees and flowers. Some days, if you are lucky, you may see Rohtash rushing in his bright green tree ambulance (imagine a green fire truck) to save a tree in the premises of NDMC.
