Jadav Molai Payeng has been awarded with the prestigious ‘Padmashree’ award by government of India for this unparallel work. Born in a nomadic tribe of Assam and working as a

forest worker since the age of 16 years. Once, large number of


snakes died in the flood of Brahmaputra River flowing by the village. As a preventive measure, Molai planted 20 bamboo plantlets. In 1979, the local Social Forestry Department began a social afforestation project on 200 hectares of land. ‘Molai’ was one of the few forest workers who were looking after that project. Molai continued to plant the trees even after completion of the project. As a result of his continuous work of planting and caring for the trees, the barren area witnessed the forest cover over the 1360 acres.


Today, this jungle in Kokilamukh of Jorhat district of Assam is the result of the hard work for 30 years. . Now, it is well known as ‘Molai Jungle’.
