Just one man

I am just one person, what can I possibly do? We learn to say that as we grow up.

One man, Jadav Payeng, did not learn that lesson. He has been planting trees in Majuli island, India. He has single-handedly planted a forest that is larger than Central Park in New York.

He started his mission in the 1970s and the reforested area has attracted wildlife like elephants, deer, and tigers. He also has ideas on how to simultaneously prevent soil erosion and make the place economically viable.

That is the work of just one man. Now imagine what what a few more who go beyond dreaming or complaining can do.
