Every fortnight, The Intersection narrates stories that meld culture, science and history in India. Through interviews, anecdotes and original research, Padmaparna Ghosh and Samanth Subramanian bring alive the rich breadth of human imagination and knowledge, making for a riveting listening experience. The incessant punning — well, that’s just a bonus.
What does reforesting a barren tract of land entail? A popular guess would be that it involves months, maybe years, of aggressive restoration practices, which allow flora and fauna to flourish. But, nature is remarkably resilient and sometimes, all it takes is avoiding human intervention, and simply letting nature take its course. This is the story of Sejal Worah, a woman who almost single-handedly restored a degraded hill located inside a forest in Mussoorie.
