The climatic conditions in Kerala has ruined everyone’s life and in this moment Kochi’s Noushad proved that humanity is above all by donating nearly 10 sacks of new clothes kept for Eid sale.
While people are usually seen helping the needy by donating old pieces of clothes, Noushad made it clear that people can do much more if they try. “When we depart from this world, we cannot carry anything. My profit is to help the needy.Isn’t this the way we should celebrate Eid? My Eid is like this”
Noushad, a muslim by religion, is a street vendor in Kochi. He sells clothes for a living. He kept the new clothes for the Eid sale. But in the recent days when Kerala was hit by a massive flood and people lost everything, Naushad took charge and supported those in relief camps.
When Noushad started stuffing new clothes in carry bags, volunteers cautioned him that he was giving away too much and it might affect his festival sales to which he replied, “It is meant for the poor people. I am not bothered about profit or loss.’’
The video of this noble deed went viral on social media. Everyone, including the state’s PWD minister G Sudhakaran, Ernakulam District Collector S Suhas and actor Asif Ali, have lavished praise on the vendor’s selfless act. The video shows how the 40 year old man is busy packing the clothes in a narrow godown and transporting them to the vehicles, along with the volunteers.
Twitterati started to make sketches of Naushad and praising his selfless act.
