What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

[/dropshadowbox] Armstrong Pame, a young IAS Officer from Manipur built a 100km road with People’s contribution. In cash and in kind. Village volunteers worked for more than six months to build this road in a rough terrain. Donations started pouring in with facebook spreading the message far and wide. This road became the first crowd funded road to be built in India and probably the world.
