He does not sell the lambs. He clears the debts with the money he gets and saves some money.

Sheep his wealth

His name is Ranganna. He rears sheep, at the uplands and hills of Pattikonda. He has a flock of 50 sheep. To graze his flock he walks 24 km everyday. Both his children study in government school. he takes the sheep to the uplands early in the morning and returns home in the evening when it gets dark. A dog helps him in his work. He carries his lunch in a cloth bag and eats in the afternoon, and feeds the dog also in a water place. He protects the lambs by carrying them on his shoulders. He graze his sheep not only on the hills but also in the fields.

In summer, when grass is not available, he migrates to anicut along with the sheep for five months. The other people also migrate in groups of 12 members each. They take a donkey with them to carry their cooking utensils and other things. They stay wherever they find grass. Usually, the grass is available near the banks of streams and canals. Sometimes cheetahs, Jackals and hyenas attack the sheep. Dogs protect them to some extent. There is a fear of snakes during night times.

Some formers ask the shepherds to leave their sheep in their fields during the night. If the flock of stay of sheep stay in the fields during nights, their excreta overtime will become a fertilizer and is useful for the crops. As the farmers are benefited they, in turn give and vegetables to the shepherds. In this way, they help each other.

Ranganna keeps a pair of leather chappals, a woollen rug, a hand stick and a wooden water bottle with him. In the past, when he was away from his home and family members, `he was not able to know about their welfare. Once, when he was away, he could not know about his father's death. But, he bought a mobile phone recently and he talks to his family members over mobile cell phone every day.

He sells the adult sheep whenever he gets a good offer. He does not sell the lambs. He clears the debts with the money he gets and saves some money. When the businessmen purchase the sheep from him they take the sheep away by lorries, Ranganna feels bad and cries for them. He consoles himself and continue rearing the sheep.
