From Karnataka's Ayyapa Masagi, who singlehandedly created over 60 lakes in rural India, to Bilar Dar, an 18-year-old Kashmiri rag picker, who was hailed by PM Modi on 'Mann Ki Baat' for cleaning Wular Lake, the Internet often brings forward some amazing and inspirational stories.
And often, these stories come from the most unexpected of places. Former International cricketer VVS Laxman recently took to Twitter to share one such tale of inspiration from Kanpur that has left netizens humbled, with many hailing the man’s actions.
In his post, the former Indian cricketer shared the story of one tea seller from Kanpur, Mohammad Mahboob Malik, who takes "care of education for 40 children".
According to Laxman, Malik, “spends 80% of his income" on the education of the children. The former cricketer and current cricketing commentator called the man "an inspiration" in his tweet.
