An Indian Man Quit High Paying Job in Australia To Become Sarpanch In Village

Hanuman Chaudhary
27-year-old  Hanuman Chaudhary,  from Nagpur district of Rajasthan, India, was working as a manager at a resort on the Gold Coast in Australia. He was earning 330000 USD a year in Australia.  One fine day, he received a phone call from his father, and that changed his life forever. 

Mr. Chaudhary's father Bhura Ram had to call him back as a result of a controversial government order that set educational prerequisites for contesting village elections. According to the rules set by the government candidates contesting the elections must have studied up to 8 standard, and members of the Panchayat Samiti, which governs a group of villages, to have completed Class 10. Which made about 90% of the villagers ineligible for contesting elections. Most elderly in the village studied just up to fifth.

Chaudhary chose to return to his village and its villagers to serve his purpose. He soon began engaging in door to door campaigning, ignoring caste issues, which are dominant in the state. Soon he won the election with a record 6000 votes.
"After Class 8 minimum qualification rule, the people of the village contacted me. I asked my brother, he said if you want to do social work you can come back. He supported me fully so I came here and won the election with a good margin" Chaudhary said.

The Death of Richard Parker And Cannibalism - Shipwreck Case (1884)

T he English yacht Mignonette was a 19.43 net tonnage, a 52-foot cruiser built in 1867. It was an inshore boat, not made for long voyages. In 1883, she was purchased as a leisure vessel by Australian lawyer John Henry Want. The yacht could only reasonably be transported to Australia by sailing, but she was a small vessel and the prospect of a 24,000-km voyage hampered Want's initial attempts to find a suitable crew. She finally set sail for Sydney from Southampton on 19 May 1884 with a crew of four: Tom Dudley, the captain; Edwin Stephens; Edmund Brooks; and Richard Parker, the cabin boy. Parker was 17 years old and an inexperienced seaman. O n 5 July, the yacht was running before a gale, around 2,600 km northwest of the Cape of Good Hope. Though the weather was by no means extreme and the vessel was not in any difficulties, Dudley gave the order to heave to so that the crew could enjoy a good night's sleep. As the manoeuvre was completed, and Parker was sent below to pr
