The forest man of India

Click on the next image to see the video. This is just a jpg with no link.
I like trees very much, and I plant some trees as well single handedly. But the man in this story exceeds any imagination. He’s name is Jadav Payeng. See the story in more detail in the following video.

Jadav lives in the island of Majuli which once was covered with thick vegetation. Unfortunately the area become flat later, without trees or other vegetation. Jadav single-handedly built 1200 hectare forest himself, 37 years ago. He spent his last 30 years of life to plant this forest, which is now a home of 5 Tigers, included in the migratory route of Elephants and home of many creatures.
