Dashrath Manjhi was a man from Gahlour village in Gaya district of Bihar. Dashrath Manjhi was popularly known as 'Dashrath Baba' in his district. People also knew him as Mountain Man for the work that he did. The story goes like this. His wife, Falguni Devi, died because she couldn't get the timely medical treatment. The reason for not getting the timely medical treatment was that the nearest town with a doctor was 70 km away from their village. This incident changed the life of Dashrath Manjhi. He pledged that no should die as his wife died due to lack of medical facilities or rather say medical facilities being very distant enough. So he started carving a tunnel out of the hills to reduce the distance between his village and town on the other side of the hill where medical facility was available. Dasrath Manjhi photo
After giving 22 years of his life from 1960 to 1982 to this noble cause, Dashrath Manjhi single-handedly carved a 110 meters long, 7.6 meter tall and 9.1 meter wide tunnel cum road by cutting through Gehlour hills. The picture here shows the work done by him and road craeted by him between the mountains. This herculean task of Dashrath Manjhi reduced the distance between the Atri and Wazirganj blocks of the Gaya district from 75 km to just 1 km. This noble but herculean task also earned him international recognition and acclaim. Dashrath Manjhi was born in 1934 and died in 17th August 2007. His noble effort was recognised by Bihar government and he was given a state funeral by Bihar Government
