image for Maharashtra water crisis: Dalit man digs a well in 40 days after his wife humiliated for water

However, Tajne has become the hero for the residents of his village and an inspiration for people across Maharashtra, which is going through water crisis.

That is when Tajne decided to dig well for his wife.

While it’s a job of 4 to 5 people, he managed to do it alone.

He worked for 40 continuous days and spent 6 hours digging the ground.

The day when Tajne decided to dig earth, his wife also thought the same way villager’s did and now feels embarrassed for not coming to Tajne’s help.

So he used to dig ground for four hours before leaving for his work and two hours after returning to work.

We wish Tajne success in his endeavors and this also makes us alarmingly think about the discrimination Bapurao Tajne faced just for being Dalit. »
