Mizoram: Passengers on the special train give away food to flood-affected people in Assam
May 30, 2020: On their way back to Mizoram, passengers on the special train give away whatever little food they had for themselves to people affected by the flood in Assam.
The train was returning from Bangalore with stranded Mizos on board.
A video of the passengers tossing packets of biscuits and other food items surfaced and has gone viral thereafter. So much so that Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga could not keep from sharing the video on his Twitter handle.
Tweeting a video he wrote, “The following viral WhatsApp video is all about stranded Mizos on their way from Bangalore sharing their eatables along the railway track for flood-affected people on their way to #Mizoram and, it just made my day!
Owe no man anything, but to love one another. #Love”

The Assam floods due to increase in water levels of the Brahmaputra have affected thousands in Assam. Many are rendered without a home due to the severe floods.
Such an incident where people can be seen empathising with other people in distress by doing whatever little they are equipped to do is indeed a scene to cherish. Humanity still exists!
