He Planned A Tree Every Day In The Desert, 37 Years Later He Created Something Amazing
The National Geographic were stunned when they discovered Jadav Payeng’s story and what he has done for this planet. Since 1979 Jadav Payeng has taken it upon himself to change a part of this earth for the better, by planting a tree every day for the rest of his life. On a remote island of Majuli, Jadav Payeng wished to restore his land to its former glory that his parents used to talk about. He dreamt of a land full of greenery and life within it. A single Mishing tribal teenage boy grew up to create 1,360 acres of dense forest and is now known as the ‘Forest man of India’.
