In an unusual sight, three dolphins were spotted in the Vashi Creek on the outskirts of Mumbai and a video of them playing in the water are being widely shared on social media.
The clip shows one adult dolphin and two smalller dolphins leaping out the water one after another.

People were left surprised to see the dolphins so close to the shore, and said it showed the need for keeping the environment clean.

This could be a common sight for all to enjoy if we humans (and Indians specifically) as a species could just clean up our act. https://t.co/uHMxaQut16
