RAIN, sunshine or storm the show must go on.
The statement is true in every sense for Rajesh Khanna who depends on his wheelbarrow to cart vegetables from house to house in Buca, Savusavu.
Commonly known as Khanna, Don't Break My Heart, the 38-year-old man loads his wheelbarrow every morning with eggplants, cabbages, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans and dhania to sell along the Savusavu-Nukubalavu road.
"My wheelbarrow has an umbrella and a rear vision mirror," he said.
"This is to help guide me while I am on the road. I prefer to walk and push my heavily-laden barrow because this is one way of saving money as I don't have to hire vehicles to sell my produce.
"I sell every day whether it's raining or the sun is really hot, I don't care. People make fun of me because some of them think I am mad but at the end of the day, I am happy to earn something for a living.
"Sometimes I buy from the Savusavu market when there is not enough supply from my backyard garden.
"It's good for me to sell from house to house because this is also one way of helping my customers save their money."
Being well-known in Cakaudrove is a bonus for his business.
"Motorists who see me on the road stop and buy. Some of my customers order from me and I take their vegetables to their homes."
