NIMESH KAPOOR started this petition to Government of Bihar and

Dashrath Manjhi 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 ridge of hills using only a hammer and chisel.                                              In 1959 or 1960, Manjhi's wife Falguni Devi was badly injured and died because the nearest town with a doctor was 55 km away. She was injured while walking along a narrow path across the rocky ridge to bring water to Dashrath Manjhi, who had to work away from the village at a location south of the ridge.As a result of this experience Manjhi resolved to cut a roadway across the ridge to make his village more accessible.He felt the need to do something for society and decided to carve a path through the ridge so that his village could have easier access to medical care.He completed the work in 22 years (1960–1982) and hence Dashrath Manjhi shortened travel between the Atri and Wazirganj blocks of Gaya town from 55 km to 15 km.                                                                                                       This is an appeal to make Gahlaur, the native place of Dashrath Manjhi, as a tourist destination. It is my endeavor to pay a true tribute to a man whose great work is far better than the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, whose Taj Mahal is remembered for love. We should create a new symbol of love, Dasharatha Manjhi and his wife Falguni Devi by making their love land Gehlaur as a tourist place.                        Thanks.
