I recently came across a TED talk by an ex-dosco called Bunker Roy. He was talking about his work at Barefoot College in Tilonia village, in Rajasthan and I was quite amazed. He has probably conquered innumerable odds, faced plenty of challenges and come out strong if he has been able to run the college since 1972.
He was one the list of Time’s 100 most influential people.
And please watch the TED talk.
It will definitely inspire you.
