Chandranpillai gets back his 'companion' that was part of his life for 36 yrs
Kanjirappally (Kottayam): The bicycle of Chandran Pillai that went missing on Tuesday was found abandoned on the roadside. The elated Chandran Pillai said that the feeling after getting back the bicycle is like winning a Rs 10 crore worth lottery. He said that he would have quit cycling if he had not got back the lost one.
The Hercules bicycle was part of Chandranpillai’s life for the last 36 years. 64-year-old Chandranpillai, who is running a small hotel in the town, had parked his bicycle on the Vizhikkathodu-Kuruvamoozhi road the other day to collect firewood from the garden next to it. When he returned, the cycle was missing.
But on Thursday, the bicycle was found from Chirakkadavu Mannamplavu which was 4 km away from Pillai’s house. The locals celebrated the return of cycle.
Chandran Pillai bought this bicycle 36 years back for Rs 100 and had never handed over it to anyone. Chandra Pillai believes that maybe the robber must have felt bad for stealing the bicycle and returned it. Mathrubhumi had reported Chandran Pillai’s story.
