On May 31, 2019, commuters travelling by the Central Railway were in for a surprise when they spotted Mulund Railway station's roof being built by encompassing a tree. The tree hitting the railway station roof came as a shock and surprise as there have been many instances in the past where full-grown trees have been chopped off and killed in the name of development or safety keeping the monsoon in mind.

In this way, the Central Railway not only managed to build the station roof but also managed to save the 20-year-old tree by building the station's roof encompassing the tree. Mid-day Journalist Rajendra B. Aklekar was the first to report about the same and took to social networking site Twitter to share pictures of the same.

As soon as pictures of the tree encompassing the roof went viral netizens took to his post to heap praises on Central Railway. One user wrote, "Good Efforts", while another raised question as to what will happen when the tree grows day by day.

Here's how netizens reacted to Central Railway's noble idea:

Now that the Central Railway has managed to save the tree by encompassing it with the station roof, the only question that now remains is, will other decision-making bodies follow this example?
