Bhagandas hails from Parsa district and is now living at Kapan with his wife and a daughter-in-law. When he came to know that he was infected with leprosy, he came to Kathmandu in search of Anandaban hospital. Although, he started his treatment there, he lost his toes and a small part of middle finger on his left hand.
He joined New SADLE in 1989 and was very active despite being a patient. He used to work in paper section as well as in all the sections whenever there were some extra work.
He is married and has two sons and a daughter. All his children are married and are engaged in their personal life.
Bhagandas is very happy to be associated with New SADLE and is thankful to New SADLE that he could earn a decent living by working here. He recalls his earlier days when he was very active at New SADLE as an employee but now feels bad sometimes as he is not able to walk properly due to a surgery undergone on his backbone. He is now living on an allowance provided by New SADLE.
