Initially, seven new varieties of plants were prepared, but all were destroyed in a disaster.

Apart from this, varieties of names like great cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Anarkali are also in Kalim’s garden. He says that man comes and goes, but mangoes are always there. Whenever people eat this mango, they will remember their favorite cricketer.
