As stranded migrants return home from distant lands, a sweet gesture by a group of locals in Bihar distributing food has been winning hearts online. In a video that has gone viral, they were seen handing out food packets when a special train carrying migrants made a brief stop in Begusarai region while on way to Mizoram.
The volunteers were also seen donning masks and PPEs. The clip even reached the chief minister of the north eastern state who shared the video.
“Goodness for goodness,” CM Zoramthanga wrote referring to a previous video where home-returning Mizo people had given away their food parcels to flood victims in Assam. “India is beautiful when flooded with Love,” the CM added sharing the message of positivity online.
Watch the video here:

In this time of hardship we see our reality of who we are and bind us together for stronger and meaningful lives we live under the same sun. May the love of God spread on us sweetly.

“Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure- pressed down, shaken together, and running over.
For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

The passengers aboard the train were stranded due to nationwide lockdown and the train was one of the many special trains arranged by Indian Railways to transport people to their home states.
