The world needs more men like this one! BE the change you wish to see in the world...
After his #wife was turned away and insulted by locals for trying to drink from a well, Bapurao Tajne was pushed to the edge hearing about the #disrespect of their poorer #workingcaste condition.
Tajne put his back and #tools to #work for six hours every day digging a new #waterwell all by himself in their village of #Kalambeshwar –a task that typically requires a team of four or five #men. Villagers ridiculed the man’s mission knowing such a feat had never been accomplished before and other attempts to locate new sources of #water in the area had already failed.
Now, after only forty days, the unwavering #husband struck gold–and his newly-created #well will provide water for all the other previously-insulted working class villagers – known as #Dalits – in the Washim district of #India. “I don’t want to name the well owner for I don’t want #badblood in the village,” Tajne told Times Of India. “However, I feel that he insulted us because we are poor and Dalits. I came home that day in March and almost cried. I resolved never to beg for water from anybody. I went to #Malegaon (the closest town) and bought tools and within an hour I started digging.”
#BeTheChange #Imagine what YOU could do in #40days !!
