~Dharan ko Hero->Saanai~

had to bribe him a coke just to get a hair-cut for himself.....

Saanai is his name.
The first face i came-across when i landed in Shiva Marga that early morning of summer last year. 
when i saw him, I did dislike him the way he behaved and stared  but gradually his those behaviors really amazed me with laughter. He was like that, and I guess the people loved him the way he is, I mean that way weird or unusual whatever.

You can easily get his Glimpse in Shiva-marga of BP Koirala's Hospital in Dharan 24/7. He is a well known Face. I should say he is famous in a way there.
As i got to know from the local residence ' he was left by his own family when they found out he was mentally unwell'.

He loves Coke all the time, it doesn't matter to him if its summer or winter. He has this unbelievable craze for Coke and he prefers to drink with straw each time he holds a bottle.
He isn't a beggar nor an Orphan. The people in Shiva-Marga are very soft-hearted people, they all manages ways to provide him with the basic needs. He is even looked-after whenever he is unwell. People never forget to include him in any moment of happiness. I should say ‘He is lucky indeed’.
He can't speak properly and He has this funny walk of Charlie-Chaplin. He wears socks throughout the seasons let it be summer or winter because he hesitates to show off his uneven toes.
There is a man named Ravi Uncle, and 'Saanai' calls him, “Ba” (father in Nepali).
I was told by the neighbors that Ravi Uncle takes good care of him and even provides shelter in his own house with meals every day. Thank God he is in a safe place with love and care. God bless him and the people of Shiva-Marga.

Everyone in Shiva-Marga loves Saanai.

Shiva-Marga way, left gate is the way to BP Koirala's Hospital which comes under the top 10 among the Asian countries/ and Saanai is Famous here.

wherever i am, he makes sure to sit next to me whispers "didi coke khane"
