Surely you have heard by now the name Harekala Hajabba. He is the orange vendor who was recently honoured with the Padma Shri for his contribution by way of building a school to educate the kids in his village.
His story is inspiring, but we didn't want to provide you, dear viewers, secondhand information about him. So Swarajya writer Harsha Bhat actually went down to visit him at his village. The result was a four-hour-long fruitful conversation.
Here, she narrates Harekala Hajabba's story.
