Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday received the first copy of the English translation of Thummeti Raghothama Reddy’s book- Terrace Garden: Midde Thota. The book, originally written in Telugu, chronicles Mr Reddy’s successful journey of developing a fruitful terrace garden at Naarapalle, Hyderabad. Mr Naidu commended the translator Koduru Sitarama Prasad and the publisher Yadlapalli Venkateswara Rao for their efforts in bringing out the book.

The Vice President also appreciated Mr Reddy for using age-old traditional methods of farming in his terrace garden. Mr Naidu said, terrace gardening is a wonderful idea as it can provide us with nutritious food that is cost-effective.

Highlighting the benefits of having a terrace garden, the Vice President said that it not only gives fresh produce of chemical-free fruits and vegetables but also increases the levels of oxygen in the surrounding air. He added that gardening brings one close to nature and it can also relieve mental stress.

The book ‘Terrace Garden: Midde Thota’ gives an insight into the practical methods and techniques that can be adopted while cultivating a terrace garden. The Vice President urged the people with empty spaces at home to try cultivating gardening as a hobby.
