सड़को के किनारे फलदार वृक्ष लगायें जाएँ न कि नपुंसक अ-फलदार वृक्ष । अन्यथा ऐसे ही व्यक्तियों का स्वाभाव हो जाता है। शुष्क और कठोर - फल हीन। आस पास के वातावरण और उच्च पदाधिकारियों के व्यवहार और शोषण का गहरा असर नागरिकों पर पड़ता है। शासन अगर - शोषण और शुष्कता के स्थान पर देने की भावना रखेगा तो नागरिक भी वैसे ही उदार- मना बनेंगे। स-शुल्क की जगह निःशुल्क पार्किंग , पेयजल , रैनबसेरे , पियाऊ , फलदार वृक्ष इत्यादि सुविधाएं अगर रखी जाएँगी तो इनका नागरिकों पर उदार प्रभाव पड़ता है ।
