Someone has rightly said, a person is poor or rich by heart, not by money. More recently, Harekala Hazaba, a 64-year-old fruit seller from Karnataka, has also proved it. Harekala Hajba runs a school for poor children for about 10 years. For this reason, he has also been honored by President Ram Nath Kovind. Harekala Hajba has been awarded the Padma Shri for her outstanding work in human service and education. Harekala Hajba is giving free education to poor children by selling oranges. Due to this effort, he has been awarded the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian award by President Ram Nath Kovind.

Harekala Hajba proved the importance of education. In an interview given to BBC, he told that once a foreign customer had asked him the rate of fruit in English, which he could not answer. This is the reason why he wants to educate the children of his village so that they do not have to face such a situation.
Harekala Hajba is an example. People like him are needed in today’s society. Society can be made stronger and better because of education.
