After the tragic death of his wife, Indian-native Dasrath Manjhi carved a 360-foot-long, 25-foot deep, and 30-feet wide through-cut which formed a road. Manjhi worked day and night between 1960 to 1982 to accomplish this remarkable feat. He decided to build this road after his wife died as a result from not being able to reach a hospital, so he wanted to make sure that no one else suffers the same fate. What beautiful dedication, and quite a story to tell the grandkids.
