An indian man single-handedly planted a forest

Never giving up is a state of mind. Persistence might well be omnipotent as the US President Calvin Coolidge once said. As Treehugger reported, a lone Indian man planted a 1360 acre (550 hectares) forest.

Since 1979 then 16-year old Jadav “Molai” Payeng have planted hundreds of trees and have created a small forest ecosystem on what was ” a barren sandbar near his birthplace “.

The forest is now a safe haven for many animals such as birds, deers, rhinos, tigers, and elephants,  species increasingly at risk from habitat loss elsewhere… Nothing is impossible.
