Finally, a day came when he didn’t lost his temper for the whole day, he excitedly informed this to his dad. Dad told son to now pull out a nail every day, he patiently pulled out all nails by every passing day and finally all the nails were gone, he informed dad that all the nails were pulled off. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. Father said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.”

Story of a Man who created Glaciers
Chewang Norphel is also known as ‘Ice-Man’ or ‘Glacier-Man’. He is an 82 year old retired Indian Civil Engineer. Chewang belongs to middle class family in Leh, Ladakh. After completing his education from the Amar Singh College in Srinagar as a student of science, he went to Lucknow for completing his civil engineering diploma course in 1960. After that, Chewang worked for the Rural Development Department of Jammu and Kashmir for a whopping 35 years.
Ladakh is surely a paradise and one of the most magnificent place in India. The exquisite, beautiful scenery of the cold desert mountains is very appealing to tourists, but only one interaction with the locals can also reveal the other side of the beauty. Ladakh has a water scarcity, rainfall in the area is very less so the main source of water comes from melting of Glaciers, which for the majority of the year is always frozen. 80 percent of the population of Ladakh depends on farming, water is an essential part of farming, due to Global Warming over the time rainfall has become very low and melting of snow and glaciers happens very late as it happens after the sowing season. Water is required for irrigation but isn’t available there at the right time.
Chewang nearly spent whole of his life in Ladakh, he knew about the problem very well. Due to water shortage locals have started slowly migrating towards urban areas. Chewang noticed that taps in the area were kept open to keep the water flowing preventing from water getting freeze. He also understood the fact that water which gets diverted from the fast flowing streams of melting glaciers and comes under the shade of poplar trees preventing from sunlight gets frozen. As a civil engineer his mind came up with the brilliant idea of making artificial glaciers by diverting the water coming from glaciers. He knew if the water is diverted and prevented from moving fast, it will get freeze. Initially as he explained his idea to local people to get help in doing so, everyone laughed on him. As he believed in himself and on the idea, he started the work on his own and successfully created the first artificial glacier. As the original glaciers are at very high altitude of 18,000 feet they start melting from the month of June whereas sowing season starts from April and May. Artificial glaciers made by Chewang Norphel is at much lower altitude of 13,000 feet so they start melting before the original glaciers and hence providing water during the sowing season. As the locals slowly recognized the importance of work done by Chewang Norphel they started helping him. As of now more than 12 artificial glaciers across the Ladakh has been made by Chewang Norphel. Slowly but at the last his efforts were recognized and awarded by private and government institutions. He was awarded with Jamnalal Bajaj Award in 2010 and with Padma Shri (the fourth highest civilian award of India) in 2015.
