The idea and the interest developed in 1999 when the piece of land was purchased by Late Mr. Bhawarlal Ji Bolia in the drops of Aravalli’s near Sisarma in 1999. In a conversation with Mr. Rakesh Bolia, he explains “When we purchased the land it was totally barren, no one could find even a grass shrub.”  Now he is standing proudly on a field where no one can see the land part barren. When asked about the caretaker of the garden, Mr. Bolia smiles and points towards his wife, Mrs. Neena Bolia.
