Jadav Payeng, known as the Forest Man of India is working on his second forest after creating the Molai forest in Majuli (near Jorhat Assam). After a flood in 1979, Jadav noticed snakes had died in large number as the area (which is now a forest) used to be just sand. Once he got some advice from his aunt and uncle, he planted some bamboo where the snakes had died. He hoped that the bamboo would grow and provide shade for the snakes to hide from the sun. But 30 years later, Jadav has created a forest that not only provides shade for snakes but also for rhinos, elephants, monkeys, tigers and many birds. And now, he's taken on a project to plant a forest 4 times the size of Molai (about 500 hectares).
