He said people used to taunt him that being a young man he was begging and not trying to find work but the truth was that his hands did not work which was why he could not even be a laborer but his reason to live a better life is so strong that he found a way to achieve his goals rather than an Excuse.
Shiv Singh is a 48-year-old law student at the Rajasthan University. Till 3 in the afternoon, he begs at shops and houses in the region. As soon as the clock strikes 3, he can be spotted in the college campus carrying some books in an old, torn bag.
