Mountain Man-Dashrath Manjhi

This Story started when Dashrath Manjhi's wife Falguni Devi died due to lack of medical treatment as in that area the nearest treatment center was almost 70km from his area that was basically a village.after her death Dashrath Manjhi didn't mourn but he made a strange decision. He decided to carve a 360 feet long and 25 feet wide and 30 feet high passage through Mountain-Gehlour which could reduce the distance of 70km to just 1km. This was to be done from Atri and Wazirgang (his village) to blocks of Gaya-District (nearest town).He started this unbelievable work with a hammer, chisel and nails and in nearly about 22 years (1960-1982) this was actually done bringing him international fame and an honorable "Mountain Man".
