Karnataka Orange Seller Has Been Honoured By Padma Shri Award For Educating Children In His Village

Harekala Hajabba

Just like all Santa’s don’t wear a red and white cap, similarly, all heroes don’t wear a cape. This stands true in the case of a 68-years-old orange seller, Harekala Hajabba who belongs to Karnataka. He is not from a rich family, that’s why he never got a chance to finish his formal education. However, he was determined to educate the children at his village and he did what he wanted which is why he also received a Padma Shri Award in an honour.

He is just a fruit seller and earns very less in a day

As per News18, Harekala belongs to the village of Newpadapu near Mangalore. He sells oranges to earn his living. One day a foreigner asked him the price of his oranges, he was not able to answer in English. This is when he realized the importance of education these days.

He said, “The first time I felt handicapped because of my lack of education was when a foreigner asked me the price of the fruits in English. I didn’t know what he meant. I realized the manner in which communication can help one to progress in life, and at the same time bring people together.” he said to BBC.

He decided to provide education to children in his village by building a primary school

It was when he decided to provide education to the children of his villages so that no one else faces a situation like this. He merely earns a meager amount of Rs. 150 a day by selling oranges. With this price, he also set up a primary school as his village doesn’t have any school.

He said, “An idea struck me to start a primary school so that the young children of my village would not go through a similar situation.”

Even he took loans to build a primary school in his village

Not only this but he also even took loans and used all his savings to buy land to build the school, reported NDTV. Slowly and gradually, the number of students also started enrolling themselves in his school.

He never took support from the local authorities, he opened a primary school in a madrassa. After that, with the support from a few philanthropists, he managed to construct a small building for the primary school. After working so hard all day and night to raise funds, he was finally able to open a high school for students aged 10 to 14 years.

His struggle made him receive Padma Shri Award

It was due to all the hard efforts that he undertook, he received a call from the Union Home Ministry ahead of the 71st Republic Day. He was informed that he was awarded the Padma Shri Award for providing education to the children of his village.

To let you know, he is among the 21 recipients of the Padma Shri award this year. We are proud of you, Harekala Hajabba! Long way to go!

Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg Blows Dry His Armpits Before Big Events Claim The Book

Mark Zuckerberg Blows Dry His Armpits

Now, this shows that Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg takes his public image very seriously. He reportedly made his employees’ blow-dry his armpits before he proceeds on to present himself in big events. This bizarre news has been claimed by a new book: Facebook: Inside Story. Do you know Mark got famous for his perspiration during a 2010 televised interview when he became visibly nervous and started sweating profusely?

Technology journalist Steven Levy, in his book ‘Facebook: The Inside Story’, claims that Mark Zuckerberg appears to be “consumed by his pub. This made him do this thing before he made his appearance in the public.

“A communications executive is shown blow-drying the CEO’s armpits before speaking appearances to eliminating anxiety sweat,” he claims in his book, according to a review by Bloomberg.

Now, this bizarre news is spreading like the fire in the bush, wherein people are also cracking jokes on him for this thing.

However, when he was asked about the armpit claims, Facebook spokesperson Liz Bourgeois told Business Insider that “I doubt this is true and if so it would have been at our communications team’s request, but surely anyone who has ever worn a grey t-shirt can relate.”

The book which has claimed this news is slated to release later this month. According to the review by Bloomberg’s Austin Carr, the book describes Zuckerberg as someone “consumed by his public image” and “too idealistic about technology’s use for good vs. bad”.

While Facebook’s CEO, Sheryl Sandberg is portrayed as a micromanager and someone who is “fanatical about her public image”.

Well, this seems so funny but also serious at the same time. This idea shows how serious Zuckerberg is towards his public image while representing himself in front of the audience.

Srinivasa Gowda, Karnataka’s Buffalo Racer Is India’s Usain Bolt





Srinivasa Gowda India's Usain Bolt

Since so many days this man Srinivasa Gowda has been coming in the news. Well, this name doesn’t need any introduction right now. As people have started comparing him with India’s Usain Bolt after getting to know about his potential. He was even expected to appear for trials for a track event at Sports Authority of India (SAI) in Bengaluru, Gowda has said he is not interested in the trials and will focus on Kambala only as of now. After knowing about him, Shashi Tharoor has highlighted him in a tweet calling him faster than Usain Bolt.

Well, that’s very surprising……Have a look at what Shashi Tharoor has tweeted

He tweeted, “Faster Than Usain Bolt? Karnataka Man Running With Buffaloes Covers 100 Metres in Just 9.55 Seconds. I urge the Athletics Association of India to take this man under their wing & make an Olympic champion of him. Wonder how many hidden talents we have”.

Srinivasa is a Kambala Jockey

Srinivasa is 28-years-old ‘Kambala jockey’ who had run 142.5m in 13.62 seconds which is equivalent to 100m in 9.55 seconds. Bolt’s record is 9.55 seconds to run the same distance, which is a world record at the moment.

What is Kambala?

Kambala is a buffalo race where one needs to run with the buffalo. Srinivasa is a Kambala Jockey and he achieved this feat on February 1 and has been doing this for 7 years.

Experts told that there’s a difference between Bolt and Gowda’s running

Well, experts believe that there is a huge difference between running on tracks and muddy fields. The president of the Kambala Academy where Gowda was trained also denied comparing him to Bolt due to lack of accurate timings. While talking to TOI, he said,

“We are proud of him. In the 11 Kambalas held this season, he has won 32 prizes. We will not compare him to Usain Bolt because we cannot vouch for the accuracy of timings”.

Even Gowda is surprised at how people are responding to him. He gave all the credit to his buffaloes.

“I love Kambala. The credit of my success should also go to my two buffalos. They ran very well. I chased them or drove them”.

Not easy to compare Bolt and Gowda together

It’s not easy to equate a race with buffaloes to that of one involving humans. So do the comparison between them is also not easy as both are different. But Gowda is giving the tough competition to Bolt.

Even Gowda himself agrees to the fact that Bolt is a world-class athlete and he was nowhere in comparison. And that’s true.

While people have understood that there is a huge difference between his and Bolt’s run, they have shared the video on social media platforms asking the government to take note of his talent.

Do you know Kambala sport was banned a few years ago because of the cruelty inflicted on the buffaloes, but after some time the ban was lifted after passing the special legislation?
