Beggar donates silver crown to Lord Ram in Vijayawada

A 75-year-old beggar named Yadireddy from Andhra capital city Vijayawada has made it to national news by donating a silver crown to Lord Ram.

Hailing from Nalgonda district of Telangana, Yadireddy came to Vijayawada as a teenager and he did many odd jobs, even drove a rickshaw, for almost 45 years, India Today reported. But, as he turned old, he started begging on the city streets.

"I believe in god and I have only survived till now due to the strength and courage he has given me. As a thank you, I am offering my bit to Lord Rama," Yadireddy reportedly said.


Yadireddy had earlier donated silver crowns to Sai Baba as well and now he has chosen to donate silver crowns for Kodanda Ramalayam in Mutyalampadu. He spent nearly Rs.1.5 lakh for the silver crowns and also donated Rs.20,000 for Nitya Annadanam.
