HONESTY OF A RAGPICKER

HONESTY OF A RAGPICKER

Alka Sarode, a 17-year-old ragpicker from Dombivli, Mumbai (Maharashtra, Bharat) handed over gold jewellery worth Rs 8.5 lakh to the police, which was mistakenly thrown in a bin. Alka  was felicitated for her honesty by Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and Home Minister R R Patil on March 22, 2012.. She was also rewarded Rs 10,000 by the family that owned the ornaments. Vandana Ulkande, 65, and her husband Vijay, 67, had decided to keep the gold ornaments in a tiffin box in the dustbin before they visited their village in Kolhapur. They wanted to keep the valuables hidden because of the alarming rise in break-ins in Dombivli recently. However, on returning from Kolhapur they forgot to remove the gold and the bin was given to the sweeper the next day
