No Act Of Kindness Is Ever Wasted

Any small random acts of kindness are more appreciable than any big deed. The world goes around because of these kinder people. I really salute Bilal Ahmad Dar for his kindness deeds.

An 18-year-old rag picker, Bilal Ahmad Dar is from Bandipora district of North Kashmir. He has taken the duty of cleaning Asia’s second-biggest freshwater lake Wular Lake by himself.

Over the years, the lake has become infamous for its toxic debris, plastic and animal wastes.  In the last 50 years, the size of the largest freshwater lake in Asia has dropped from 273 kilometers to just 72 kilometers water expanse.

 

 

For the last five years, Bilal Ahmad Dar has been removing plastic trash from the lake and selling it for around Rs 200 per day. He has removed 12,000 kg of trash from Kashmir’s Wular Lake.

 

Bilal Ahmad Dar has been appointed the brand ambassador of the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC).

Bilal is certainly a role model for Indians and now having been appointed as the Clean Kashmir Ambassador, he is an inspiration for so many other Kashmiris who would also want to contribute to make the valley a clean place and to restore its pristine glory.

Bilal has also been featured in a documentary ‘Saving The Savior – Story Of A Kid And Wular Lake.’ The documentary was produced and directed by Jalal-u-Din Baba which depicts the life of Bilal.

    What a lovely story. While it’s amazing how a rag picker took it upon himself to cleanse the lake it’s unfortunate that the BIG authorities turn a blind eye to this. This is a very good series where you are highlighting the deeds of these unsung heroes. Looking forward to reading more such real life stories.

    Kudos to Bilal! Wonderful initiative… And so cool that he’s inspiring others to do their bit, too. The world needs more Bilals—everywhere 🙂 Thanks for sharing his story, and for being a part of the #WATWB!

    I wish to salute this person. He is doing a great thing for the state for the nature. We lack civic sense when it comes to plastic just throw it anywhere and everywhere, its a tough job. Hats Off!

    This is such a heart warming story. Having stayed in Kashmir, I could relate to it even more. I have seen Wular lake and it’s current state. Hats off to this young boy and thank you for sharing.
