How Laungi Bhuiyan brings rainwater to the village

He is a shepherd and used to farm goats and collect wood from nearby forests to sell in the local market for livelihood. But whenever he got time from his daily livelihood work, he took out the spade, called ‘Kudal’ in local, and started digging and leveling.

He started working 30 years ago and regularly worked 2-3 hours daily because he had to also work for his livelihood to survive.

Businessman Anand Mahindra is very impressed with the canal man’s rock-solid decision. He said that this canal is no less glorious than the famous seven wonders of the world like the Pyramid and The Taj. 

Many glorious monuments have been built which have involved sweat & toil over decades. But those were usually the visions of absolute monarchs using the labour of their subjects. To me, this humble canal is no less glorious than the pyramids or the Taj.
