How One Simple Tweet Is Inspiring Internet Users across India To Be More Generous

Many of us who encounter children in tattered clothes begging at traffic signals and busy intersections in big cities, often look the other way. We are afraid any money we give may be used by an alcoholic father, or to buy drugs, or simply be taken away by the person who sent them to beg in the first place. And although we would love to buy them a meal, we are often to busy to get down from our cars to do so.

Visha Suchde, who stocks numerous packets of Parle G biscuits in her car to give to impoverished children, tweeted this picture on social media and received an overwhelming response.

The tweet inspired around 3,000 netizens on Twitter to appreciate her thoughtful gesture and other people shared their individual experiences of doing the same:
