Jadev Payeng, recieving the "Padma Shri" from the Pesident of India

Jadav “Molai” Payeng is from Majuli. He was born in 1963. In 1979, Payeng, then 16, saw snakes that  died due to excessive heat after floods washed them onto the tree-less sandbar. Then he planted around 20 bamboo trees for the first time .     . 

Later he chose a empty sand island in the river and started planting trees, he did it for 40 years !! This Video shows what happened later .           .
