You may have already heard about the man who single-handedly carved a road through a mountain for his wife, or that semi-paralyzed man who did the same to a hill near his home. Another story of pure dedication and hard work is about a man from Saja Pahad in Chhattisgarh, India, who took matters into his own hands to deal with water shortages in his village.
Shyamlal Rajwade was just 15 when he decided to do something about the water shortage problem. He went to a nearby forest and started digging a pond, which would be a water reservoir for people in the village.
Saja Pahad only has two available wells that are not enough to distribute water to all the villagers.
The government simply ignored the people’s plea to have the water shortage problem solved.
But this man couldn’t just sit without doing anything.
Today, Rajwade is 42 and people in his village consider him as their savior. He spent the last 27 years working to complete the pond, which is now measured one acre and 15 feet deep filled with water people can use.
And Rajwade is proud of his work, too! Why shouldn’t he? He did it all by himself. He told the Hindustan Times that he never received help from the government or the villagers. He simply dreamed of living in a community where the most basic of necessities is not being deprived.
As expected, Rajwade‘s story of determination went viral in India recently and that didn’t go unnoticed this time by officials in Mahendragarh district. Rajwade received an equivalent amount of $156 for his contribution.
Sources said that the village still does not have proper road connection and electricity. But with Rajwade’s story, hopefully the government will take notice of this village. The village district collector told ANI that he will “notify the government and we will take a decision immediately. We will provide him [Rajwade] all facility. He is an example for our state.”
Woman Brushes Teeth With Charcoal For 7 Days And Here’s The Outcome
A woman experiments on activated charcoal by using it as an alternative to her toothpaste to see if it is more effective in making her teeth whiter.
Many of us fail to recognize the role of good oral health as an important factor for our overall wellness. The simple task of brushing the teeth can prevent many serious diseases but with the lifestyle we maintain, we oftentimes forget to do such simple task.
Since we were young, we were already taught that toothpaste is best in cleaning the teeth. But apparently, there are alternatives out there that might be better than toothpaste.
A woman skipped the use of mint-flavored toothpaste to try the effects of activated charcoal. Kate Taylor used to brush her teeth twice a day with a toothpaste that promises “advanced whitening.”...

Criminal With One Blue Eye and One Brown Eye Becomes a Hot Model!
Ladies, meet Prison Bae!
In the past, getting into modeling means walking into a agency and submitting your portfolio, hoping that the discriminating eye of the agents will see something good in your photos. All this changed when social media came into the picture. Because of this, even the most unimaginable candidates for a modeling job can secure a precious contract if their mug shots catch the eye of the public - eventually the images will likewise grab the attention of the modeling agencies.
In 2014, for example, Jeremy Meeks caught the eye of social media for having model-level good looks. Nothing unusual there, if not for his status – he was in prison arrested on firearms charges and grand theft.
