We bet you all remember Mountain Man. Dashrath Manjhi is the man who is famous for tearing apart a rocky mountain by using chisel and a hammer. The Mountain Man spent 22 years of his life to reduce the travel time between Atri and Wazirganj from 55 km to 15 km, and his last wish was to have railway connectivity to his town Gehlaur.
While Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had announced that they will be connecting the village by rail connectivity, but he recently confirmed it. Suresh Prabhu, who can be easily called one of the effective ministers of the Narendra Modi cabinet, did it again to fulfil his promise.
