    The man who made a forest ! Jadav Payeng, India.




    Great effort !

    Jadav Payeng, a man in his mid-fifties, has been instrumental in converting a sand bar in the middle of the river Brahmaputra in Assam, India, into a huge forest. He started his project 30 years ago when he was still a teenager. "Mulai", as he is known among locals, started work on the land in 1980. A scheme was launched at that time by the social forestry division of the district, involving the planting of trees on only 200 hectares. The project was completed after 5 years and all the laborers left, except Mulai. Dedicated to the forest, he stayed on and single-handedly looked after the trees. He not only looked after the plants, but continued to plant more trees on his own effort slowly transforming the area into a big forest. Total area of the forest is about 1000 hectares and now it is known as Mulai forest.

    He has been honored by Jawaharlal Nehru University on Earth Day for his remarkable achievement.Itís truly amazing when we see people who single-handedly create something truly significant.

    Well done "Forest Man of India"
