It is always endearing to watch kids perform in school plays. One such play staged in Kerala on Republic Day has left people emotional and in splits. In a video shared on Facebook, which has created quite a buzz, a little boy, wearing a white dhoti and carrying a big stick, is seen performing on the stage, resembling a very cute version of Mahatma Gandhi. While the play went all, it was his innocent gesture during his performance that proved to be the icing on the cake.
The little ‘Gandhiji’ is seen walking with the stick as as a man sings ‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram’ in the background. The boy, however, loses focus suddenly when he spots his mother in the audience. Leaving behind his friend dressed as Chacha Nehru, he keeps smiling and moving towards his mother even as a woman is asking him to go back and not leave the stage. The curtains came down quickly after but not before it warmed the hearts of the people watching the play. (Read this in Malayalam)
Netizens have been showering lots of love and praise for the little one, saying it’s quite natural for him to get confused seeing his mother in the audience.
