Due to the torrential downpour that has interrupted the daily functioning of Bengaluru for the past two days, several areas are still under water, with houses and vehicles partially submerged, disrupting normal life. Videos and images showcasing the threat of citywide waterlogging are all over the internet. However, in the midst of adversity, we also get a glimpse of “kindness” and the collective spirit to weather the tough times. After a clip of locals rescuing a BMTC (Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation) bus went viral, here’s some more heartwarming content straight from the city road.
Actress and former Lok Sabha member Divya Spandana has shared a video which shows a man guiding a street dog through the flooded road. In the clip, the man can be seen walking by the side of a road, and the dog follows him. He turns around once too often to watch the four-legged animal. At one point, when the dog seems distracted, the man turns around and snaps his finger to get his attention. “Kindness in despair,” Spandana wrote with a red heart emoji.
