A man named Dashrath Manjhi carved a road in a mountain so that his village could be connected to the other village because his wife died without any treatment and the nearest doctor was 70 km away in the other village.
Dashrath did not want anyone else to suffer the same fate as his wife, so he single-handedly carved a 360-foot-long (110 m), 25-foot-high (7.6 m) and 30-foot-wide (9.1 m) road by cutting a mountain of Gehlour hills, working day and night for 22 years from 1960 to 1982. His feat reduced the distance between Atri and Wazirganj blocks of Gaya district from 70 km to just one km, bringing him international acclaim.
