Varca’s disabled newspaper seller inspires youth

Rodrigues completed his SSC at St Mary’s High School in Varca. In 1999, the person selling newspapers in the village decided to hang-up his boots and offered Rodrigues to take over his business. While the previous owner used to run his business from a shop by paying rent, the physically-challenged decided to opt to sell newspapers from the corridor itself.

He set-up his table, started his business and continues to do his business from the same spot till date. Over the years, he has got two boys delivering papers door-to-door for him.
