Sivayya : Inspirational Story

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.
