I took an oath that I would be barefoot, would not go to home, eat once in a day, would not buy any new clothes, and would live the life like a saint until I plant one lakh 15 thousand tress. But, In three and half years, I planted 12 lakhs 62 thousand tress.Rakesh Mishra, Founder & CEO (Naya Sawera NGO & India’s Youth Story)
