“He once told me, ‘I worry about the fate of the world just like everyone. I see bad things happening on my island, and I do what I can to help. I am just a simple man. There are many just like me.’”
Since 1979 a man in India has trekked to a remote, barren island by himself every day to plant and take care of trees. He’s built his own forest that the world only recently discovered.
His inspiring story is told in the 16-minute documentary Forest Man and it’s well worth your time.
