As a kid, Sudarsan Pattnaik wanted to be an artist but he had no money to afford pen, paper or colours. He was also forced to drop out of school because of financial constraints and worked as a domestic help.
This man goes about foraging passenger trains for leftover food. And even that, he does not keep for himself but makes sure to feed his pet stray animals first. He does not mind sleeping on an empty stomach even if he has to give his share of food to the animals.
