Now people do not think much about us environmentand they are doing everything to ensure that it continues to thrive. However, some of them are tireless to preserve nature, including this incredible islander. Not only did he love the island's ecosystem, but he transformed himself into a lush paradise.
A massive environmental mission
Jadav Payeng was perhaps one of the most motivated teenagers in history. At 16, he decided to do an incredible job of planting a tree on his island every day. However, his project to revive the coast of Majuli Island was not accidental. Instead, he experienced a scene in which he became active.
In 1979 Payeng came across a group of dead snakes that had been swept down the Brahmaputra River. The snakes had not drowned. Instead, they dried out because there was no shade on Majuli's shore. Payeng feared his people would eventually die in the same heat. In his mourning, Payeng began his mission to plant a daily tree that soon sprouted into an incredible forest.
From sapling to paradise
Throughout his lifetime, Payeng, who became a vegetable grower, never wavered from his mission. He wanted to ensure a safe and healthy island for all the wildlife and people who lived there. He continued to plant trees regularly, more than any human could keep track of. And his simple dream soon blossomed into a whole forest.
Over the course of 40 years, its seedlings have grown and developed into beautiful forests. In addition, the river carried grass seeds from China and transformed the sandy landscape into a lush paradise. The coast of Majuli was completely unrecognizable. By 2017, Payeng's Mulai Forest was larger than Central Park and seemed to hold worlds in it.
Revival of the wild: "As long as it survives, I survive"
Payeng has fulfilled his mission of keeping the wildlife in the countryside. In the 21st century, Mulay Forest was rich in animal origins Majuli Islandincluding rhinos, monkeys, elephants, Bengal tigers and snakes. Despite the population of wild creatures, Payeng never worried about his safety. "I never feel danger in the forest," he said. "It's my biggest home."
His forest also benefited his compatriots. It has preserved the interior Iceland safe from flooding and the herbs of the forest were useful in the local kitchen. Payeng really restored an ecosystem that was about to die, and re-lived Majuli's beauty. And after 40 years of maintenance, Payeng wakes up early to look after his forest every day. "It gives me strength," he said. "As long as it survives, I survive."
