An 80-year-old from Coimbatore has won hearts on the internet for his determination to earn his daily living on his own despite being disabled. Hailing from Pudukkottai district, Mr. Raman has been a private bus operator since his early days. Unfortunately, a few years back his right hand was amputated in an accident. Yet the determination left Mr. Raman. Later he got the job of postmaster in the postal service. He retired after working for 37 years as a one-handed postmaster managing function. A decade ago after retirement, the elder moved to Coimbatore along with his wife.

Now, eager to work for the rest of his life, Mr. Raman rides his bicycle ‘alone’ around the city, delivering couriers. Every day, he moves from Thadgam area to a private courier company in Saibaba Colony, where he picks up the parcels and rides a bicycle to deliver them door to door. This old man cycles around the city of Coimbatore for about 60 km daily.

‘My wife is facing health issues. That’s how I finish the housework in the morning and cook food for both of us. We have a daughter who is married and lives in another city. I earn up to Rs 7,000 per month through courier company. I have no problem cycling with one hand,” says Mr. Raman.

A few days back, a girl from Bihar was also seen walking to school with one leg showing similar determination. Seema had to amputate her leg after a road accident two years ago. But that didn’t stop her from going to her school, which is about a kilometer away from her place of residence. Seema has become a celebrity in her village as she has set an example for children’s education, especially promoting girls’ education. The soul of Seema is certainly not broken. His passion for education stems from the dream of becoming a teacher one day.
