Another story of a true hero: a man who has planted a forest
Jadav Payeng became a well-known person not only in his home state of Assam, India, but also worldwide. A husband and father of three children, he is now often referred to as Forest Man.
The Mājuli island used to be the largest river island on the planet, but numerous natural disasters took toll on it. Terrible floods and earthquakes caused severe bank erosion, which can become the reason for the extinction of the island in future years. Fortunately, this land found its own super hero, who decided to help his home island by his own forces.
Jadav "Molai" Payeng started planting trees at the age of 16. To date he, now aged 53, has planted a huge forest, which is bigger than NYC's Central Park. Transforming a vast wasteland into a beautiful oasis, he gave home to numerous animal species, such as Bengal tigers, Indian rhinoceros, deer, birds, and rabbits. Elephants also visit this wonderful forest reserve annually.
Watch this powerful video to find out more about Molai and his amazing career.
