Video: Meet A Blind Salesman, Who Earns His Living By Selling Pens

The Logical Indian

October 4th, 2015

I met Anil, who is blind by his eye-sight, but his morals are high to earn his living by his own handwork. I could not stop myself from talking to this man, who inspired me with his deed. I started asking few direct questions, when he answered me in Kannada. He told me that he stays near Beleshivaalaya Hasakote KR Puram Taluk. He sell pens, and that is his daily job.

At a time when he got no work, he did not want to roam around and beg for money. “That is not a right decision to survive,” he said—adding that he also wanted to live a normal life like everyone else.

One box of pen costs him Rs. 70, which he buys from Avenue Road. He further sells it at Rs. 100, by earning a margin of Rs. 3 on every pen from the box that he sells. “This helps the students also,” he says. He sends a strong message to people, that one need not beg for livelihood. A person can earn it with willingness which Anil has.
