Garlands of the plant are also seen around Jackie’s neck. Jackie believes that planting trees is the only way to protect the environment and reduce pollution. So Jackie doesn’t hesitate to walk around with a small pot hanging around his neck. Jackie loves the spider plant. According to Jackie, this plant should be kept in the car to avoid toxic air. Jackie also told the reason behind this in an interview. Jackie said, I had planted a fenugreek tree as a child. When it grew, I thought I had given life to one. From then on, it was fixed in my head that we must plant seeds.’ In another interview he said, ‘I have not done any favors to the world by planting trees. This is everyone’s job. If there are no trees to be planted, they will have to burn and die. That’s what’s going to happen.’
Jackie added, ‘You need to think about your son’s son. Half of my bones went into the muscle. But others will come later, there are people in our house. I have a tiger, my tiger will have a little tiger. Yours will too. We have to do this for them.’ That’s why Jackie is seen walking around with this spider plant in many places for several years.
