What is Hara Hai Toh, Bhara Hai Campaign ?

"Igniting Minds' 'Hara Hai Toh Bhara Hai –Green India Challenge' is not just an initiative; it's a call to address the causes that truly matter to society. Our campaign aims to ignite the collective power of individuals who are committed to making a positive difference in our world.

The significance of planting trees in combating climate change and air pollution is universally acknowledged. In alignment with Dr Kalam's vision, our challenge aspires to position India as a global leader in restoring the green cover. Launched on the 27th of July 2018, which marked the third death anniversary of the 'People's President,' in the vibrant city of Hyderabad, this initiative has already garnered the participation of millions of people worldwide. We are honoured to have the unwavering support of esteemed individuals such as Mr Kapil Sharma (Bollywood Comedian), Prabhas (Indian Actor), Sachin Tendulkar (Indian Cricketer), Jadav Payeng (Padma Shri), PV Sindhu (Badminton Player), Prakash Javdekar (Indian Politician), Om Birla (Speaker of the Lok Sabha), Venkaiah Naidu (Vice President of India) & numerous other distinguished citizens. Today, we extend an earnest invitation to you, urging you to join this ever-growing chain of change-makers. Your involvement and support will propel us towards realizing our ambitious goals on a global scale. Together, let's create a brighter and greener future for generations to come."

India's total forest coverage: 21.71 %

The information related to Indian Forests can be found in the “India State of Forest Report 2021” published by the Forest Survey of India (FSI). It is in 2 volumes and each chapter can be separately accessed. Go to either volume 1 or 2 and download relevant chapters. State wise data is included in volume 2. Click here to see the report

  • The forest cover is depleting fast!
  • 10,000 years back 45% of the earth (60,000 lakh hectares) was covered with trees!
  • Today it has come down to just 31% (40,000 lakh hectares)
  • We are cutting 200 sq.kms of forest every day!
  • For last 10 years alone, we have been losing 5.2 million hectares of forests per year!
  • Let’s stop this mass killing of life on earth. Let’s restore the green cover of our planet!

What if Green becomes Brown ?

We all know that almost all Humanity will cease to exist along with many other life forms if green trees are eliminated from the ecosystem. For that we have initiated this mission #HaraHaiTohBharaHai #GreenIndiaChallenge". The mission till now has resulted in 95 millions seedlings planted by 29 Million Guardian Angels (People).

Why do we need to plant trees?

  • A study has revealed that a person on an average consumes 284.7 kgs of oxygen per year.
  • On an average, a tree produces 100 kgs of oxygen per year.
  • It means that on an average a person consumes oxygen produced by three trees in a year.

What is the challenge?


Plant 3 trees (seedlings ) in your locality & Nurture them for 3 years. Take a selfie and post it here, once after receiving your plants photos you will be honoured with Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam “VANAMALI” Badge of Honour.
