Shiva's 2020 Hero is Rangaiya, the Vegetable Vendor
Shiva says: "Life has been challenging and difficult for everyone during these COVID times. People living in local forests often struggled for daily commodities, and there was no transport. In this crisis, Rangaiya, a vegetable vendor, traveled 20 km on his bike to deliver essential commodities. The jungle is dangerous and unpredictable, with wild animals like wild elephants, tigers and leopards in his path. He has to sell these products and return by dusk before the National Park closes for the night.
