We are the World Blogfest is here with its eighth edition. To spread peace, kindness, and humanity on social media, a few of us have worked together to create the We are the World Blogfest. In a world where news and social media are awash with negativity, we aim to turn the focus onto small but significant stories that renew our faith in humanity.
No Act Of Kindness Is Ever Wasted
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).
“No Act Of Kindness Is Ever Wasted”
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.
