“It was evening and I was in a hurry to catch my train to Bangalore and wanted to shift my things like PC and clothes to another room. I called this guy who said he will charge 300 bucks to shift the luggage, I negotiated to 250 as it was close by. I asked him to follow me as I was on bike, which was my biggest mistake. Once I reached kukatpally, I had to take a u-turn and then waited for him on the other side of the road.
Then I realize I didn’t take either his phone number nor his auto number. I couldn’t find him anywhere I started searching for him at all auto stands and thought he robbed me, since I negotiated. My luggage was worth thousands and with all expensive things in it. I was frustrated after searching for about 2 hours. I went to police to complain but they said that they couldn’t help as there are no CCTV cameras in that road.
I decided to go home as there was no hope for me at the police station and nor I had any evidence like the number plate etc. In grief, I came to the place where I actually loaded my luggage and was in sorrow as I had all my 4 years hard-earned data in my PC which was more precious to me. Then in the dim light around 9 pm I could see an auto approaching me, I thought it was some other auto as all of them look the same nor could I recognize the one which I hired. Here comes this man who recognizes me and said that he was too searching for me at my destination. I hugged him and I felt happy like never before and gave him 3 times the fare. The one word he said was ” Sir I don’t know how much this costs but I felt its worth more than its price for you ” so had to cancel all my days work to ensure you get your belongings.
I want you to appreciate this guy whenever you meet him, he wants to learn English as he has to feed his family. He intends to do hardware and networking or ITI as he is in serious debts. He also owns a tata ace stays in balanagar and please hire him for trolley purposes.”
Help him if you can. Below is his phone number:
