As challenging as 2020 has been for millions across the globe, the unforeseen circumstances have also paved the way for some kind and inspirational gestures. From COVID-19 outbreak to Black Lives Matter protests, from the horrors of police brutality to constant paranoia of maintaining personal hygiene, there’s a lot that goes through an individual’s mind these days.
To dial down on the ‘gloominess’, many people have been searching for “good news”. Therefore, here is a compilation of five heartwarming stories that are unique as well as uplifting. From 'courageous' rescue of a goat to 'hilarious' impersonation of Hasan Minhaj by an internet user, these are five best from today.
A group of men are being widely applauded for their ‘grit, determination, teamwork and courage’ after they rescued a helpless goat stuck in a hole. A video shared by Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Assam Police, Hardi Singh, shows the ‘desi style rescue’ mission where the men can be seen using a bizarre technique to help the animal that had fallen in a deep ditch in a farm field. Instead of using a rope to rescue the animal, a man can be seen sliding inside the hole while others hold his leg to support him. In the clip, one can see the man entirely vanishing inside the hole with just his legs sticking out.
Desi style rescue! Grit, determination, team work n courage. 😊👏🏼👍🏻— Hardi Singh (@HardiSpeaks) June 27, 2020
