A boy’s special message on meal boxes prepared by his mother for Covid-19 patients is winning hearts on social media. A photo of the boy writing “Khush rahiye” or “Be happy” on said meal boxes is currently going viral online – and social media users are full of praise for the boy’s thoughtful gesture. At a time when India is battling a devastating second wave of coronavirus, the image, many said, acted as a bright spot in social media feeds that are full of heartbreaking stories.
The boy’s photo first surfaced on social media platforms like Facebook, Reddit and Twitter two days ago. Since then, it has reached thousands of people.
The photo shows the schoolboy dressed in a green shirt, painstakingly spelling out “Khush rahiye” on the cardboard lid of a meal box. Next to him on the table are several meal boxes, each one featuring the two words in Hindi, followed by a smiley face.
“This boy’s mother cooks for Covid patients and this sweet boy writes ‘Be happy’ on each meal box for them,” wrote Twitter user while sharing the pic.
