His name is Sivayya. He is sixty five years old. He knows the pain of how his co-villagers have to travel two hours to reach the nearest hospital in Vijayawada in times of medical emergency. When Sivayya came to know about Sanjivani hospital,  he felt happy at the prospect of medical aid reaching his doorsteps. He thought it was his duty to part with a minimum amount. Without a second thought he donated Rs. 3,500 from his meagre daily earnings. Sivayya makes a living by pulling a rickshaw. He is a rich man because he has a big heart. Sivayya’s inspirational story was telecast over & over again. Inspired by Sivayya’s story, many came forward to contribute for the noble cause. In collaboration with Siliconandhra TV9 telecast Sanjivanithon a fund raising event LIVE and managed to collect thirteen crores in four hours for Sanjivani a multi speciality hospital in Kuchipudi. Collections poured in from three different centres – Hyderabad, Vijayawada and Kuchipudi. Hordes of people went to see the hospital building under construction in Kuchipudi. Many saw Sivayya there and congratulated him for his noble gesture. TV9 thanks rickshaw puller Sivayya for inspiring people to donate for Sanjivanithon.
