Almost every day, plenty of videos or pictures go viral on social media. The Internet showcases some extraordinary people whose talent or courage simply inspires many. Similarly, a video of a ragpicker speaking fluent English is currently breaking the internet. A woman named Shachina Heggar recorded a video of this old woman who is identified as Cecilia Margaret Lawrence. This woman in question was found picking rags in Sadashivnagar in Bengaluru. In the first video, the old woman is sharing her life journey and where she used to work.
We hear that she studied in a college in Japan and lived there for seven years. The woman also revealed her mother’s profession. However, when she was asked if she felt alone, she promptly took out a picture of mother Mary and said, ‘You call this alone?’ In another video, we hear the old woman singing while telling how God has been protecting her. The video is going viral on social media. While some asked to help her, some have found respect for her.
A user wrote, “Respect i don’t know itna study krne k bad bhi kuch log piche reh jate hai bcz of majburi sad to see this she deserves a better life,” while another one said, “Sad to see the circumstances which forced her into rag picking she can do so many good paid jobs, if someone helps.”
There was another one who was inspired by seeing her and her courage, “This is so inspiring... She is not alone... I loved how she said that she is not alone.. God bless her and you.”
Sharing the video on Instagram, Heggar captioned it as, “Stories are always around you. All you need to do is just stop and look around. Some beautiful and some painful, but hey, whats life without a few flowers ... Want to get in touch with this amazingly spirited lady.. If any of you see her please get in touch with us.”
