Exnora has done a lot for the local communities and with the support of communities. This will be a cornerstone project for us to showcase”.
AR Reihana, Chairman of Exnora and Music Composer said “SPB lives in our hearts via his songs and now via the trees we plant. A tree that gives us shade gives us fresh air and saves the environment is a classic tribute to SPB whose songs give us energy and his humbleness the path to life”.
