Selfless love

Amid the unprecedented outbreak of deadly coronavirus outbreak, Indian Forester in Odisha, Susanta Nanda has been sharing heartwarming videos of animals and kind gestures to cheer up the followers. On May 9, the IFS officer posted the ‘lovely’ video of a gorilla reuniting with its human friend after nearly 12 years. In the short clip, both beings can be seen hugging each other and the animal recognised the girl even though she was just a small kid when they last met. The video shows their heartwarming reunion and one of the internet users also called it “true life” and "selfless love". 

The girl lived with the gorilla as siblings when both were young in the UK. However, when the girl’s father thought it was time to send the animal into the wild, the two were parted. Years later, the girl travelled to Gabon along with her father to meet the friend in the forests. Initially, the gorilla can be seen taking a back but after some investigation, it recognised the humans and “hugged like old friends”.
