Dashrath Manjhi Biography in Telugu
Dashrath Manjhi (c. 1929 – 17 August 2007), also known as Mountain Man, was a laborer in Gehlaur village, near Gaya in Bihar, India, who carved a path 110 m long (360 ft), 9.1 m (30 ft) wide and 7.6 m (25 ft) deep through a hillock using only a hammer and chisel. After 22 years of work, Dashrath shortened travel between the Atri and Wazirganj blocks of Gaya town from 55 km to 15 km.
Early life and work
Dashrath Manjhi was born in a Musahar family, at the lowest rung of caste system. He ran away from his home at a young age and worked at Dhanbad's coal mines. He returned to his village and married Falguni Devi.
Falguni Devi died after an accident due to not receiving immediate medical care, as there were no nearby hospitals. Thinking that no one else should suffer this fate, he resolved to build the road to make his village more accessible. Manjhi felt the need to do something for society and decided to carve a path through the Gehlour hills so that his village could have easier access to medical care. He carved a path 110 m long, 7.7 m deep in places and 9.1 m wide to form a road through the rocks in Gehlour hill. He said, "When I started hammering the hill, people called me a lunatic but that steeled my resolve."
He completed the work in 22 years (1960–1982). This path reduced the distance between the Atri and Wazirganj sectors of the Gaya district from 55 km to 15 km. Though mocked for his efforts, Manjhi's work has made life easier for people of the Gehlaur village. Later, Manjhi said, "Though most villagers taunted me at first, there were quite a few who lent me support later by giving me food and helping me buy my tools." Official roads between his village and Wazirganj and Atri and Gaya were only built where his path was after his death in 2007.
Manjhi died on 17 August 2007 after suffering from gallbladder cancer in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi.He was given a state funeral by the Government of Bihar.

For his feat, Manjhi became popularly known as the 'Mountain Man'. The Bihar government also proposed his name for the Padma Shree award in 2006 in social service sector.A stamp was released by India Post  in the "Personalities of Bihar" series on 26 December 2016.
