Posted in PICTURES       10 Sep 2015       4816      

Dashrath Manjhi was a poor labourer in the Gehlaur village, India who had the idea to create a path through the Gehlour hills so that his village could have easier access to medical attention. He spent 22 years making turning this idea into a reality by carving a path through a 360 ft long, 30 ft wide and 25 ft high hillock using only a hammer and chisel.

 

Dashrath Manjhi ran away from his home at a young age and worked at Dhanbad's coal mines. He returned to his village and married Phalguni Devi. While crossing Gehlour hills to bring him lunch, she slipped and seriously injured herself that eventually led to her death. Manjhi was deeply disturbed and that very night decided to carve a path through the Gehlour hills so that his village could have easier access to medical attention.
