Dear members, Dinesh Valke ji is the 2nd Runner up Star Expert of the last month with 43 messages. He has no parallels. He created efloraofindia site & gifted it to us. He always had a great vision & pioneered so many new ideas on efi. He has taken aim of getting names of plants in vernacular languages as well as in their own scripts & he has been tenaciously working in that direction for as long as he has been with efi, if not more. The result of his efforts is always seen in efi, though at a slow pace as it is a very time consuming work. My hat off to Dinesh Valke ji!!! -- With regards, J.M.Garg
