Odisha Woman Donates Property To Rickshaw Driver Worth Rs 1 Crore


Odisha Woman Donates Property To Rickshaw Driver: While people spend their whole life building houses, land and property, an older woman from Orissa has given all her property to a rickshaw puller. The name of this woman is Minati Patnaik, and her age is 63 years. Minati lives in the Sutahat area of ​​the Cuttack district of Orissa.

She is utterly alone at this stage of her age. Last year, Minati’s husband died of kidney failure. After this, in the same year, his only daughter died due to cardiac arrest.

The decision did not change despite the sisters’ protest.

Budha Samal drives a rickshaw in Cuttack itself; for the past 25 years, Budha and her family have worked with Minati Patnaik. Minati has now handed over her property worth one crore to Budha Samal. This property includes his three-storey house, jewellery and some cash.


Minati Patnaik told India Today about her decision

“I was completely shattered after the death of my husband and daughter. When the mountain of sorrows broke on me, none of my relatives helped me at that time. I was all alone. But, this rickshaw puller and his family stood by me even at that time without any hope. He also took care of my health.”

Minati says that her family and relatives have a lot of property, and that’s why she always wanted to give her wealth to a poor person. However, Minati Patnaik also has two sisters, who have opposed her decision, but Minati has categorically refused to change her decision. Minati tells India Today about this,

“I have decided to give all my property to Budha and his family through legal action so that after my death, no relative disturbs them.”


According to Minati, Budha Samal used to take her daughter to college in her rickshaw. Because of his service towards him and his family, he has given all his property in his name. She further says that she has not done any significant work by giving Budha property; she deserved it.

Budha’s happiness knows no bounds.

According to India Today, there are seven people in Budha’s family, old parents, a wife, two sons and a daughter. All of them call Minati ‘Mother’. Budha Samal told India Today,

“When mother (Minati) told me about her decision, I was completely taken aback. I have worked for my mother’s family for more than two decades, and I will continue to serve her as long as my breath lasts.”


Buddha further says that

“This decision of my mother will change the life of my family. Now I can live with my entire family under one roof. I am thrilled with this decision of my mother”.

Budha Samal also says that he had given up rickshaw driving two years ago at the behest of Minati Patnaik. About four months ago, at the request of Minati, he started living at her house with his wife and children.

Budha Samal’s wife is pleased. In a conversation with India Today, she says,


“We have always treated Minati Patnaik like our mother. I, my husband and my children are dependent on him. It is a great comfort to know that now my entire family can live with him.”
