The Padma Shri award was presented to Tulsi Gowda, a 72-year-old environmentalist from Karnataka, on November 8, for her contributions towards safeguarding the environment. Her story as an environmentalist has proven to be an inspiration to many throughout the years.

Tulsi Gowda was conferred with the Padma Shri award yesterday, which is the fourth-highest civilian award in the country. President Ram Nath Kovind presented the award to the tribal environmentalist, who was barefoot and dressed in traditional attire in the ceremony.

Tulsi Gowda belongs to the Halakki indigenous tribe in Karnataka and hails from a poor and disadvantaged family. Throughout her formative years, Gowda never had access to any formal education, but despite all odds, she began expanding her knowledge in the field of plants and other fauna.
