It’s observed over the past few days that major portions of the country remain under the grapple of a relentless heatwave, with Churu in Rajasthan recording a high temperature of 50.8 degree Celsius.In the capital city, the mercury touched a high of 41.5 degree Celsius and it’s only forecasted to get even worse. Despite such ruthless weather, one brave Sikh man set a goal to help out fellow pedestrians.In a video that’s doing the rounds, an old Sikh man can be seen standing with cans of cold water on his scooter, by the side of the road while patiently waiting for people. He then hands over the drinking water to whoever approaches him.

People like him are simply the divine in disguise and are a rare breed, very hard to find who’d risk their own health under the scorching sun in order to help others.

In Hyderabad as well, pots of cold water are kept for people to come by and drink, as you can see above

Many of them are reported to have died in the heatwave. Soaring temperatures have caused chronic dehydration, deaths by sunstroke, and other heat-related causes. But there is only a handful who are doing their bit to help others out. Millions of people in the country are badly awaiting overdue monsoon rains as they strive hard to secure drinking water amidst the heat wave. Drought has caused destruction of crops, took away lives of livestock, emptied reservoirs and hit city dwellers and supplies to some industries.
