When Lakshman Kandhare was going about his normal duty as a waste picker from SWaCH (Solid Waste Collection and Handling cooperative)  he didn’t think he will find a Laptop in the trash can.

He left his house in the morning, and embark on the day journey, as he was trying to empty one trash cash he discover a nice laptop bag in it, so when he eventually open it, there was a laptop. He was surprised, so he decided to go in search of the owner with the aim of returning it.



India times reports that, he waited and asked people around for the laptop’s owner, but no luck came his way. He then asked Gajanan Wadulkar, a field coordinator from SWaCH to help. With Gajanan’s help, Lakshman was able to find Nilesh the owner of the laptop.

The laptop owner, Nilesh Choudhury in a report by NDTV was amazed at Laxman  gesture

“I really have no words to thank Laxman Khandare who found the laptop and Gajanan Wadulkar who worked relentlessly to find me, despite having no number or contact details. People would have given up sooner, but here is someone who found it, and made a huge effort to trace the owner,” says Mr Choudhury.

Laxman actions goes a long way to prove that we still have so many good people in this World.
