The indigenous and ethnic people of the world have learnt to live in most hostile environmental state in this universe. Indigenous peoples have not persisted passive observers of the inadequacies they are challenged with in the educational system. There are stories of countless individuals who have engraved a remarkable path to help the less fortunate, and enable them to be equal participants in shaping the destiny of the nation. One such individual has been a legend in his own lifetime. His life and his work clearly prove that sometimes it takes only one person to change the world, one person to make an impact, one person to give a helping hand, to emerge as an agent of change, and pave the way towards creating an India of Tagore’s dreams. This man is none other than Dr. Achyuta Samanta.
