Tamilarasan, a tea seller in Alanganallur, Madurai spends a part of his earnings to feed the poor and homeless people during these tough times. “I sell tea on a bicycle every morning and evening in the surrounding villages of Alanganallur, Mettupatti and Pudupatti from which I get a decent daily income,” Tamilarsan said.
“Whenever I sell tea, I give it free to the poor and needy who flock by the roadside and near the temple gates. I also reserve a portion of my income which goes solely into feeding them thrice a day,” he added.
Since being shared, the tweet has received several appreciative comments from people. “He is the real example of courage,” wrote a Twitter user. “Good job sir,” commented another.
He also said that his dream was to set up his own shop in the region and help more people who belong to weaker economic background. He said that he had applied for a loan in the past, but the application got rejected as he had no collaterals to provide to the bank.
