63-Year-Old Widow Donates Her Property To Rickshaw Puller!

A 63-year-old woman donated all of her properties worth Rs 1 crore to a rickshaw puller in Odisha’s Cuttack after he and his family served her for 25 years.

Minati Patnaik has donated her three-storey house located in the Sutahat area of the city, gold ornaments and all other assets to rickshaw puller Budha Samal. She has got a will made in favour of Budha.

The rickshaw puller, who lives with his wife and two sons, has been serving Minati and her family for the past 25 years. Minati, who is originally from Sambalpur had married Krishna Kumar Patnaik, a well-to-do person in Cuttack city. She lived happily with her husband and daughter Komal.

“My husband passed away in 2020 while my daughter died in 2021. After that, all these properties have no value for me,” Minati told a news agency.

“When I was shattered and living in grief, none of my relatives stood by me. I was all alone. But, this rickshaw puller and his family were taking care of my health without any expectation,” she said.

Budha used to serve Minati’s husband and daughter when they were alive. After their demise, Budha and his family have devoted themselves to serving the elderly woman.

Moved by the dedication, selfless service and commitment of Budha, Minati decided to give all her assets to him.

“Now, no one will harass Budha and his family after my death,” she said.

The rickshaw puller said he has been serving this family for the last 25 years and had never dreamt of the property. He never ferries any other passenger in his rickshaw.
