    In this wretched, money-grubbing world we have created for ourselves, here is a man on a mission to do something really worthwhile. Jadav Payeng is a real inspiration to us all. The return of wildlife to his island was a real jewel in the crown. And to think, there are people itching to undo all his great work and chop down his forest in order to make yet another self-assembly wardrobe.

    I so love these stories.. Those places that have flooding issues and they live along rivers, should build thier homes on "rising" docks for a platform… maybe even use old used car tires to help keep them floating? we have those kinds of docks that rise up and down w the tide here near Boston. just a thought.. if i had any money I'd be able to do more.. so I can only give my ideas..Have a great day all…

    Rivers need your help – Support the #RallyforRivers campaign. If you have not already then please give a missed call to +918000980009. It's free. Your missed call is used as 'a vote' for an upcoming law. This law if passed will make this government (and future governments) to plant 1km wide of tree cover on both sides of all Indian rivers. With so many trees the water in all rivers will rise in 10yrs of time. Planting so many trees from our tax money will itself take 10yrs of time. So for total 20-25yrs you want this govt and future governments to implement this law seriously.

    Help rivers. Cast your vote. Dial +918000980009. And share this message among others.

    Scientists have predicted that by 2030 India will be among the first few countries where civil wars will be fought – for water. Act now.
