Sunset on Majuli Island.
Mr. Payeng has planted a forest that encompasses an area of about 1,360 acres — larger than New York’s Central Park.
Mr. Payeng started planting his forest in 1980.
The forest is located on the largest river island on our planet and a home to about 150,000 people.
Mr. Payeng is seen inspecting his forest.
Today, much of the riverbank is nothing but barren sandbars, and the island is at risk of disappearing.
