This is a great read on multiple levels. The article is titled “Man Digs Well in 40 Days For His Wife After She’s Denied Water, Whole Town Benefits.”
Here’s how the article begins:
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 working caste condition.Tajne put his back and tools to work for six hours every day digging a new water well 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…..
For those who read the entire article, I especially like how he responds to the person who insulted his wife.
