A video of an injured young boy selling keychains on the streets of Gujarat went viral online, which made social media users worried about the boy’s well-being. Sakshi posted a video of boy selling keychains while perched on the sidewalk at a traffic point.
The boy is seen arranging the keychains he needs to sell for the day as the video opens with him sitting on a sidewalk. Soon after, someone approaches the boy, starts to speak with him, and records a short video. What concerned the social media users was that the boy had an injury on his right foot which he had covered with a cloth and plastic.
A text overlay on the video shared by Sakshi read, “The life you’re living is a dream of millions values it.”
Since being shared, the video has amassed over 7.4 million views. The comments box was also full with people concerned about the health of the boy and suggested that he should receive immediate treatment else he will develop gangrene.
“Pls share his address if possible .will try to make dr visit,” requested one user after seeing the video.
“These scenes terribly affect the heart. At an early age when he should be receiving love and care and living in his innocence, he is instead going through pain and witnessing the cruelest reality of life,” wrote another user.
While a third wrote, “He is earning not begging I have respect not pity for him.”
“He is so innocent and cute I request you to take him to the hospital or if possible bring him to mumbai i will take his all responsibility,” wrote a fourth.
