A woman named Sheetal   had travelled in Krishnappa’s autorickshaw along with her two year old child from Doddanagudde Adishakti Temple to Kadiyali. However, she left behind her bag which Krishnappa noticed much later. Wasting no time, he headed towards Kadiyali and managed to trace the woman who was at a loss not finding her bag. She was extremely pleased when a honest Krishnappa returned her bag intact. Though she offered him a reward, he politely refused it saying  he has done his duty by returning the bag to its owner.

Krishnappa (65)  who worked as an engine mechanic  for a shipping firm in Dubai has been driving autorickshaw since eight years.

"Honesty is the best policy". Today’s youth don’t have any value for this saying these days and the auto driver proved it true and we are proud of you Sir.
