RANDOM ENCOUNTER: Auto rickshaw man on 12th November 2013 afternoon

Name: Kazim Rasool

Resident of Budaoin, Uttar Pradesh. 250 kms from Delhi.
Addiction: Reading the newspaper every morning.
Quotes: “Love of newspapers is an addiction like any other. But it is harmless one and increases knowledge and awareness.”
