It needs mention that JFMC (Joint Forest Management Committee) Bhairabkunda was the brainchild of Naba Kumar Bordoloi and villagers of six villages bordering Assam-Bhutan-Arunachal. The work had been started way back in 2005. Now the forest has more than 11 lakhs saplings belonging to various valuable species. “We have been planting more than eleven lakhs of valuable saplings since 2005. The lands escaped human encroachment only because of its barren and sandy character. Now the landscape spreading in an area of 550 Hecters has been attracting various species of animals or birds including wild elephants,leopards, pythons, peacocks etc.” so said Esmail Daimari a hard working official of JFMC. He said with more support from government and people the lands could have been transformed to a paradise.He requested nature loving people to visit JFMC,Bhairabkunda.
