R S Jamir
Indian Police Service officer from Nagaland

R S Jamir is the first Indian Police Service officer from Nagaland. More importantly, he is the co-founder of the Luzheto Welfare Society, a social forestry organisation. After the demise of co-founder Hekiye Sema in 1998 he has been carrying forward the work single-handedly. Although restricted to Luzheto village, his work in regenerating the barren lands has helped people live off the forests once again. As a sign of gratitude, villagers have named a hill after him. “He was at the right place at the right time. We can never thank him enough,” says a villager on Jamir.
