Yes, such is the story of Khimji Prajapati, a beggar from Mehsana.
According to a leading news portal, the 71-year-old man was diagnosed with stomach cancer three months ago. However, even the deadly disease was not strong enough to stop him from donating ₹5,000 to the Kerala flood victims.
When he came to know about the horrific conditions of the people in Kerala, Prajapati, extremely weak in health, went to the collector’s office and donated the entire money. Speaking about the same, he said:
I was devastated on hearing about the plight of people in flood-ravaged Kerala. Nothing gives me more happiness than giving something to the needy.

The amount could have been well spent on his treatment but, he chose to aid the needy. That’s not the end of the man with a golden heart.
He begs to make underprivileged girls of Mehsana self-reliant. He donates his entire collection so that the girls can buy books, pen and other stationery. In Feb-2016, he has also donated the gold earring for the same.
In the last 13 years, Khimjibhai has spent Rs 80,000 on books, school uniforms and paying fees for poor girls. He has donated the money to 12 primary schools, including the Disha Day School for the disabled.
