Can one single person have such sheer determination and strong will that he can cut through a mountain? Yes, it is possible. Humans can be astounding. So is the story of Dashrath Manjhi, the mountain man.
With his bare hands and a few simple tools, he created a road right through a mountain. It took him 22 years to finish his life project. But he got it done. Willpower has enormous power, even more so than we can imagine. But this story isn’t just a matter of “I can and I will”, it’s a story of a man who wasn’t to be stopped. By no one not even himself. Remarkable.
As with many great stories, there are a few variations to be found on the web. But all of the ones I found acknowledge the fact that Dashrath showed to the world what a single man is capable of doing all by himself.
Unfortunately, the village hasn’t prospered the way he had hoped. But the awareness that a single person can change things has inspired others to step up and fight for further change.
