The Story of a Man Who Build a Road Through a Mountain After His Wife Died

This is the incredible story of the man who broke a mountain alone. The man’s name is Dashrath Manjhi, a laborer from Bihar, who single-handedly dug a road right through a mountain after his wife died. He wanted his people to have access to doctors, jobs, and education. Armed with only a hammer, chisel, and crowbar, he carved a road through the 300-foot mountain that isolated his village from the nearest town.

The people in his town told him it was impossible. It took him a hammer, a chisel, and 22 years to prove them wrong.
