Dr Green is a man with a purpose.

A senior horticulturist from Punjab Agricultural University ( PAU) who is based in Chandigarh -- Dr Satish Narula -- has carved for himself a niche as the Garden Man. The horticulture extension specialist has been involved in the redesigning of Asia's biggest rose garden in Chandigarh.

Popularly known as Dr Green, Narula is also conceptualising and designing the Garden of Valley of Animals, Maze with Hedge and Children's Adventure Park in Chandigarh.

Further, he has been invited to develop Guru Ka Bagh ( Guru's garden) at the Golden Temple complex in Amritsar and beautify the Jallianwala Bagh. He is already setting up the prestigious Chandigarh Botanical Garden on 180 acres. The garden would have an aquatic plants garden, in addition to cactus, Japanese, bulbous and nutrition gardens.

He also developed a nutrition garden and a spiritual garden at the Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi during Dr A P J Abdul Kalam's tenure as President, besides creating a herbal garden at the residence of the then Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat.
