1: The ordinary to extraordinary tales are indeed inspiring, motivating and wonderful. They are worth sharing as it will motivate many in the journey of goodness. Every story conveys the message of confidence and courage to overcome difficulties in life. It also speaks about how an ordinary person can do extraordinary things and bring changes around. I am impressed. Jai ho :-)

2: You should have written of Shri Dasrath Manjhi, one of the most extraordinary feat by a very very ordinary man. In fact a tottaly separate write up on him is warranted.
