Jai Dayi’s aim is to save the environment from the harm caused by cutting down trees. According to her son, a village in Udhampur had been hit by an avalanche in 2014, in which 40 people had died.

Khajoor Singh says that he will plant more and more trees to save the earth and the soil. He believes that a problem like pollution can be solved only by planting more trees. Many people have joined him in this mission.

On one hand is the reckless and illegal felling of trees, constant reduction in forest area, an increase in pollution and the problem of global warming. On the other hand is the initiative of a mother-son duo in a small village in Jammu’s Udhampur.

While government schemes may not solve people’s problems, through initiatives like these, people themselves can bring in a lot of change.
