plant tree


a 16-year-old boy witnessed the floods washed a large number of snakes ashore and they had died due to excessive heat on the tree-less barren wasteland. he alerted the forest department but they told him nothing would grow in that area. so he decided to plant trees with his own hands. he spent 36 years to transform this barren wasteland into a 1360-acre self-functioning forest, and it is a safe home for the animals including birds, rhinos, elephants and deer, etc.
