This person forced to live in a car in the middle of the forest for 17 years, the reason is very special

This story is about a man from Karnataka who has been living in his ruined white Ambassador car in the middle of the jungle for the last 17 years. Hearing this, the first question that comes to mind is – why is this person living in solitude in a dense forest away from society? The name of the person is Chandrashekhar Gowda, whose age is 56 years. Instead, he lost his 1.5 acres of land due to non-payment of agriculture loan, after which he started living in his car in the middle of the dense forest.

According to the news of ‘News 18’, Chandrashekhar has been living in a dense forest near Sullia in Dakshina Kannada district for a long time. To reach them, one has to walk about 3-4 kilometers in the forest, after which a small plastic sheet tied with bamboo is seen. Where his old ambassador car is also parked. The amazing thing is that the radio in it still works!



Chandrashekhar is very skinny. He is half bald. Due to old age, wrinkles and their bones are also visible on the body. He has not even grown his hair and beard for a long time, so he has also grown a lot. Chandrashekhar has two pieces of clothes and a pair of rubber slippers. He has learned to live according to the jungle.

According to the report, Chandrashekhar had 1.5 acres of land in Neral Kemraje village, where he used to grow betel nuts. Everything was going well. But in the year 2003, he took a loan of Rs 40,000 (Agriculture Loan) from a co-operative bank. But after many attempts, he could not repay it. In such a situation, the bank auctioned his farm. This incident broke Chandrashekhar from inside, which changed his life completely.

Chandrashekhar did not even have a house to live in. So he took his ambassador car and went to his sister’s house. But after a few days, he had a rift with his sister’s family. After this he decided to be alone and drove away into the dense forest. Where he parked his favorite ambassador and covered him with a plastic sheet to protect him from the sun and rain.

Chandrashekhar has been living a secluded life inside the car for 17 years. He bathes in the river. Weaving baskets with dry vines lying around them sell them at a shop in Adtale village, taking rice, sugar and other groceries in return. Now their only wish is that they get their land back. For this, he has kept all his documents safe.
