A young girl through her sheer grit and determination to continue her online studies decided to sell mangoes on the street. But her luck turned around when a businessman from Mumbai purchased a dozen mangoes from her and paid a whooping Rs 1.20 Lakhs!
This is the story of Tulsi Kumari who studies in Class 5 and lives in an outhouse situated at Straight Mile road in Jamshedpur. Due to worsening financial condition of her family due to the pandemic, Tulsi and her family were struggling to make ends meet. But a determined Tulsi decided to sell mangoes on the street to save money and buy a smartphone to continue her education through online classes. Later, a businessman from Mumbai named Ameya Hete stumbled upon her story online and decided to buy 12 mangoes from Tulsi for Rs 10,000 each. This fetched Rs 1.20 Lakhs for Tulsi, who later bought a smartphone and all the study materials she needed to pursue her dreams.
