Amritsar, Punjab (January 23, 2013): As per media reports an expert from Belgium, Sonian Hablox, met the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) officials at Amritsar on January 21 and put forth her suggestions for upkeep of the ancient ‘ber’ trees in the Darbar Sahib Complex.

Sonian was accompanied by MD Group chairman Harpal Singh and MS Dhanju from BIS Group of Industries. MS Dhanju reportedly told the SGPC officials that Sonian’s firm in Belgium was involved in the upkeep of trees using organic methods and she also had a word with a noted scientist of her company regarding Dukhbhanjani Beri, a part of which has dried up.

He said the Belgium-based firm would be keen on cooperating with the SGPC in maintaining the ancient ‘ber’ trees. He said the company would treat these trees with the help of natural techniques and there would be no side-effects.

According to The Tribune (TT): Dhanju said they would first carry out a study about the existing environment before starting their treatment on these trees.

The SGPC officials subsequently felicitated the trio by presenting them ‘siropa’ and a picture of the Darbar Sahib Amritsar.

The Punjab Agriculture University (Ludhiana) experts are currently looking after the ‘ber’ trees at the shrine.
