What actions do you take to find and benefit from opportunities?

Madhusudana Rao wasn't going to let the circumstances of his birth limit him.

Born a Dalit, the lowest of castes, the "outcasts" in India, he lived in desperate poverty. His entire family worked hard, doing difficult physical labor, walking miles a day, so that he and his brother could get an education.

The family expected Madhusudana to get a low-level government job through programs designed to help Dalits, but in reality, there were few job openings. Instead, Madhusudana seized an opportunity...

Now he and his family are No Longer OutCastes. He's an amazing example of how millions in India have been lifted from poverty and are breaking the grip of discrimination.
