He was 16 when the flood hit Assam, and Payeng observed that the flow of migratory birds was gradually declining to the forest areas and wetlands near his home and snakes were disappearing in large numbers. This disturbed him.
“I asked my elders, what would they do if all of us die one day, like these snakes. They just laughed and smirked but I knew I had to make the planet greener,” he says.
His village elders told him that with decline in forest cover and deforestation, animals lost their homes. The solution was to build new homes or forests for the animals, they said
(Almost three decades ago, a teenager, after noticing the deaths of a large number of reptiles due to a lack of a tree cover, started planting Bamboo in an area that had been washed away by floods. Today, that same land hosts 1,360 acres of Jungle called Molai Forest, named after Jadav “Molai” Payeng, the man who made this possible single handedly!)
He alerted the forest department but they asked him to plant trees himself (which he actually did). He located a riverine island, on the banks of River Brahmaputra, and began to plant the saplings. Payeng visited the island and planted a few saplings every day for three decades.
Watering the growing area of plants posed a problem. He could not draw water from the river and water all the growing plants, as the area proved to be vast for one man.
He built a bamboo platform on the top of each sapling and placed earthen pots with small holes in them. The water would gradually drip on the plants below and water them through the week until the pots were drained of water.
That forest is now home to Bengal tigers, Indian rhinoceros, over 100 deer and rabbits besides apes and several varieties of birds, including a large number of vultures.
Isn’t it amazing to see the willpower of this man who fought alone and won the battle single-handedly? Where we don’t hesitate to cut trees for our luxuries, he has sacrificed all the worldly pleasures to save the environment and the eco-system. The country needs more such superheroes who are trying to make the Earth a better place to live for one and all.
Payeng was honoured at a public function arranged by the School of Environmental Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University on 22nd April, 2012 for his remarkable achievement.
JNU vice-chancellor Sudhir Kumar Sopory named Jadav Payeng as “Forest Man of India”. In the month of October 2013, he was honoured at the Indian Institute of Forest Management during their annual event ‘Coalescence’.

“The most beautiful people I’ve known are those who have known trials, have known struggles, have known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.” — Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
We struggle. We strive. We yearn for a better life. Life is one beautiful struggle or nothing at all. Do you wish life was without challenges or setbacks? If it were so, how would you realise your potential without struggle? Without growth life is dull and dreary…….
Your thoughts have the capacity to put you in a prison and incapacitate you. Although this may sound extreme, I think it is necessary for any person’s growth, that the they hit rock bottom, whatever that is to them, in order to become as strong as they can possibly be… in order to find out what they are really made of. Pain can teach you a lot, it even makes you understand what happiness is and not to take it for granted
Life is a beautiful struggle and life is nothing without struggle✨✨

एक बार की बात है, देवताओं के राजा इंद्र ने किसी कारण से किसानों को नाराज कर दिया और बारह साल तक बारिश न करने का फैसला किया, और किसानों से कहा – “अब आप बारह साल तक फसल नहीं काट पाएंगे।” सभी किसानों ने चिंतित होकर इंद्रदेव से मिलकर वर्षा करने की प्रार्थना की। इंद्र ने कहा – “भगवान शंकर अपना डमरू बजाएं तो वर्षा हो सकती है।” इंद्र ने किसानों को यह उपाय बताया, लेकिन उन्होंने रहस्य के साथ-साथ भगवान शिव से किसानों से सहमत न होने का आग्रह किया। किसान जब भगवान शंकर के पास पहुंचा तो भगवान ने उससे कहा – “* डमरू*, बारह साल बाद ही बजेगा।”
निराश किसानों ने बारह साल तक खेती नहीं करने का फैसला किया। उनमें से एक किसान था जिसने खेत में अपना काम करना बंद नहीं किया। वह नियमित रूप से जुताई, जुताई, गुड़ाई, बीज बोता था। यह देख गांव के किसान उनका मजाक उड़ाने लगे। कुछ साल बाद गांव वाले इस मेहनती किसान से पूछने लगे – “जब आप जानते हैं कि बारह साल से बारिश नहीं होती है, तो आप अपना समय और ऊर्जा क्यों बर्बाद कर रहे हैं?”
उस किसान ने उत्तर दिया – मुझे भी पता है कि बारह साल से फसल नहीं आ रही है, लेकिन मैं यह काम अपने अभ्यास के लिए कर रहा हूं, क्योंकि बारह साल तक कुछ न करने के बाद मैं खेती का काम भूल जाऊंगा, मेरे शरीर का श्रम खो जाएगा करने की आदत। इसलिए मैं यह काम नियमित रूप से कर रहा हूं, ताकि बारह साल बाद जब बारिश हो तो मुझे अपना काम करने में कोई कठिनाई न हो।
माता पार्वती भी इस तार्किक चर्चा को बड़ी उत्सुकता से सुन रही थीं। माँ ने उनकी बात सुनकर अनायास ही भगवान शिव से कहा – “भगवान, आप भी बारह साल बाद डमरू बजाना भूल सकते हैं।” माता पार्वती की बात सुनकर भोले बाबा चिंतित हो गए। यह देखने के लिए कि उसका डमरू खेल रहा है या नहीं, उसने डमरू उठाया और उसे बजाने की कोशिश करने लगा। अब डमरू बजते ही बारिश होने लगी। जो किसान अपने खेत में नियमित रूप से काम कर रहा था, उसके खेत में भरपूर फसल थी, बाकी किसान पश्चाताप के अलावा कुछ नहीं कर सकते थे।
दो हफ्ते, दो महीने, दो साल बाद भी लॉकडाउन खत्म होते ही सामान्य जनजीवन शुरू हो जाएगा। केवल नकारात्मक बातों पर अपना ध्यान केंद्रित करने के बजाय, हम अपने कार्य-व्यवसाय से संबंधित कौशल को तेज करने के लिए, अपनी रुचि का अभ्यास करना जारी रखेंगे। डमरू कभी भी बज सकता है। इसे ध्यान में रखना सुनिश्चित करें।
‘Damru anytime Can ring
Once upon a time, Indra, the king of the gods, angered the farmers for some reason and decided not to rain for twelve years, and told the farmers – “Now you will not be able to harvest for twelve years.” All the farmers worried and prayed to get rain from Indradev together. Indra said – “If Lord Shankar plays his * Damru * then it may rain.” Indra told this solution to the farmers, but together with the secret, he urged Lord Shiva not to agree with the farmers. When the farmer reached Lord Shankar, God told him – “* Damru *, it will ring only after twelve years.”
Frustrated, the farmers decided not to do farming for twelve years. One of them was a farmer who did not stop doing his work in the field. He was regularly plowing, tilling, hoeing, sowing seeds. Seeing this, the farmers of the village started making fun of him. After a few years, the villagers started asking this hard working farmer – “When you know that there is no rain for twelve years, then why are you wasting your time and energy?”
That farmer replied – I, too, know that for twelve years the crop is not coming, but I am doing this work for my practice, because after doing nothing for twelve years, I will forget the work of farming, my body’s labor Will lose the habit of doing. That is why I am doing this work regularly, so that when it rains after twelve years, then I have no difficulty in doing my work.
Mata Parvati was also listening to this logical discussion with great curiosity. Mother, after listening to him, spontaneously said to Lord Shiva – “Lord, you too can forget to play damru after twelve years.” Bhole Baba got worried after listening to Mata Parvati. To see if his damaru was playing or not, he picked up the damaru and started trying to play it. Now it started raining as soon as Damru rang. The farmer who was working regularly in his field had a rich crop in his field, the rest of the farmers could not do anything except repentance.
Two weeks, two months, even after two years, once the lockdown is over, normal life will start. Instead of focusing our attention only on the negative things, we will continue to practice our interest, to sharpen the skills related to our work-business. Damru can ring at any time. Make sure to keep this in mind.
Although we know Palak quite well as a playback singer, we don’t know her social work side, well. Surprisingly, Palak is a part of Guinness Book of World Records as well as the Limca Book of World Records for her contribution towards the society. She started doing charity events right from the Kargil war, when she was all of 7 year old and raised money for family of the deceased soldiers. Palak Muchhal Heart Foundation raised around ₹1.71 crores from the 1,460 charity shows that this 24 year old lady has done across the world and has so far helped 338 children. Inspiring isn’t it!
