 Jesus said  “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

 

Dashrath Manjhi

Dashrath Manjhi (1934[1] – August 17, 2007[2]) was born into a poor labourer family in Gahlour village near Gaya in BiharIndia.[1] He is also known as Mountain Man.[3][4] Dashrath Manjhi’s wife, Falguni Devi, died due to lack of medical treatment because the nearest town with a doctor was 70 kilometres (43 mi) away from their village in Bihar, India.

Dashrath did not want anyone else to suffer the same fate as his wife, so he carved a 360-foot-long (110 m) through-cut, 25-foot-deep (7.6 m) in places and 30-foot-wide (9.1 m) to form a road[5] through a mountain in the Gehlour hills, working day and night for 22 years from 1960 to 1982. His feat reduced the distance between the Atri and Wazirganj blocks of the Gaya district from 75 km to 1 km, bringing him national acclaim.[2][6]

He died on August 17, 2007.[7] He was given a state funeral by the Government of Bihar.[7][8]
