The good samaritan who walked 15 km every day through thick forests to deliver letters in inaccessible areas in Coonoor, retired last week. The 66-year-old postman has been praised by netizens on Twitter after an IAS officer shared his story online.

Commemorating Sivan's dedicated work and retirement IAS officer Supriya Sahu wrote, "Postman D Sivan walked 15 kms everyday through thick forests to deliver mail in inaccessible areas in Coonoor. Chased by wild elephants,bears, gaurs, crossing slippery streams and waterfalls he did his duty with utmost dedication for 30 years till he retired last week."
