A true hero from Karnataka is providing free rides to pregnant women, physically-disabled people, soldiers and people who are living in border areas.
Mr. Managuli proudly plastered his contact details over his auto and he was very much clear about to whom he has offered free service. The 42 year old BA graduate faced unemployment and that was the reason why he choosed driving auto 11years ago. Munnesa isn’t the owner of the auto but has to cough up Rs 250 a day to use the vehicle to ferry passenger.
When we asked about the inspiration behind his selfless act where Mr.Managuli narrates a heartbreaking story, one set in 1992. He was in Narayanapura village in Basavanabagewadi taluk, Karnataka where he saw a pregnant woman died in front of him. The reason was that she did not get an ambulance or any other vehicle, to visit the hospital. This incident struck him and he decided to become an auto driver who would provide free services to such people.
Mr.Managuli lost his brother so he took up the responsibility of his sister-in-law and her four daughters and wanted to give them a comfortable life. This is one of the main reasons why Munnesa is still unmarried and plans to remain the same for rest of the life.
