Karnataka Cobbler’s Gets Invite By PM To Watch Republic Day Parade


Karnataka: Manikanta, a cobbler from Kundapura, Karnataka, has received a special invitation to attend the Republic Day Parade at Red Fort in New Delhi on January 26 next year. What’s truly extraordinary is that Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself sent this invitation, making Manikanta a local celebrity overnight.

Manikanta, who repairs shoes at Shastri Circle in Kundapura, gives credit to the Pradhan Mantri Swanidhi Scheme for this unique opportunity. This has left him super excited, especially about his first-ever flight journey. He said, “I am very excited to get a chance to travel by flight; this is my first time in life. Moreover, an ordinary cobbler like me being invited to the Republic Day event makes me feel incredibly happy and special.”

Until now, Manikanta had only watched the Republic Day Parade on television. However, the town’s municipality officials have stepped in to ensure a smooth and hassle-free travel experience for him, making all the necessary arrangements for his journey to the capital.

Manikanta eagerly awaits the opportunity to witness the Republic Day Parade up close, a dream that has been confined to his television screen for so long. This remarkable turn of events underscores the transformative power of government support and the potential for individuals to rise above their circumstances.

Manikanta, who comes from Bhadravathi, an industrial city in Karnataka’s Shivamogga district, is a local cobbler who has become an esteemed guest at the Republic Day Parade. His success story is a shining example of how government schemes and unwavering dedication to one’s craft can transform lives.
