Guwahati, Assam [Oct 2015]


Look at this man carefully. He is no ordinary man. He lives by the river in a small hut in Kokilamukh, Assam. This man will be addressing a UN convention in Paris in less than two months from now. The convention will be chaired by some of the top notch environmentalists from across the world. A few years back president Kalam sought an hour and a half to talk to him after giving him a president's medal. He is known as the forest man of India. He is Jadav Payeng.
