The man who planted a forest.

His name is Jadav ”Molai” Payeng and he has planted a forest in his native country, India.
Tne story began 30 years ago, when he was  just 16 years. The floods of  1979 killed a large number of snakes that died in the heat, without any cover of the trees. Jadav wept and resolved to change the place.

He asked for advice and the answer was he should start planting  bamboo. He was alone, but he decided to go ahead. The process took time and the young man sought the ecological equilibrium and  brought  ants from his village to improve the soil of the ecosystem. Soon, the barren sandbar turned into a forest setting with birds, deer and cattle. It is called  Molai forest, with  550 acres and is also a safe haven for endangered  species, the one-horned rhino and the Royal Bengal tiger among them. There are at least five tigers, one of which gave birth to two cubs recently.

Congratulations, Payeng! Young people all over  the world applaud your initiative and thank you, with gratitude.
