Hailing from Kuleth village in Bajoli Holi, where GMR Group's Hydro Power Project is located, Ravi used to run a small tea shop. He is survived by his old parents, wife and two children. Over the years, Ravi worked in several local shops as helper to balance his family income but could hardly meet the basic necessities.
Ravi, an undergraduate, could not pursue further studies due to dire economic conditions and family responsibilities. But no matter how tough the situation is, he never gave up on the situation. Only few months prior to the Covid crisis, Ravi owned a small tea stall at local market near Jabbal village. With the onset of the pandemic, his family was hit hard with financial crunches and could hardly arrange enough to feed a six-member family.
