A heart-wrenching video is going viral on social media where a 70-year-old woman is seen walking barefoot in the scorching heat just to collect her pension from a bank.
The video is from Odisha’s Jharigaon block of Nabrangpur district. A septuagenarian, Surya Harijan, is seen walking barefoot with a support of a broken chair in blistering heat to reach a bank to collect her pension.
Reports state Harijan went to the back to get the pension, however, she was forced to return home as her thumb was not matching the records. The State Bank of India (SBI) manager of the Jharigaon branch responded to the incident and said she is facing trouble withdrawing money because of her broken fingers.
He said the bank has given her Rs 3,000 manually and is working on resolving the issue soon.
Reports state, Harijan belonged to a low-income family and stays with his younger son’s family who makes his living grazing other people’s cattle. The family has no land to plough and lives in a hut.
Her elder son works as a migrant labourer in a different state.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also reacted to this viral video and asked the State Bank of India and the Department of Finance Services to take cognizance of this matter.
The Sarpanch of her village also said that they have discussed listing such helpless people in the village and providing pension money to them.
Viral video: Humans of Bombay founder Karishma Mehta’s old video saying idea came out of blue goes viral after Humans of New York founder Brandon Stanton’s criticism
Speaking on the issue, Stanton took to X, formerly Twitter and criticised Mehta’s company HOB’s step of sending a legal notice for copyright infringement.
Humans of Bombay’s founder Karishma Mehta’s old video has been going viral on social media platforms. The incident started with Mehta’s company, Humans of Bombay, filed a lawsuit against Humans Of India over copyright infringement.
This case got the attention of the Humans of New York’s founder Brandon Stanton. Speaking on the issue, Stanton took to X, formerly Twitter and criticised Mehta’s company HOB’s step of sending a legal notice for copyright infringement.
HONY’s founder said he stayed quiet on the appropriation of my work because according to him HOB shares important stories, even if they’ve monetised far past anything I’d feel comfortable doing on HONY, Brandon Stanton added. But you can’t be suing people for what I’ve forgiven you for, the HONY founder said.
In this cold war, an old video of Karishma Mehta is going viral. In the video, she talks about the inception of HOB and how the idea came to her spontaneously. She expressed that it felt like the perfect fit for her and she decided to start it without any hesitation. Reflecting on the experience, she shares that starting something new during that time was an amazing experience.
Later in the video, she discusses her struggles and how the organisation didn’t generate any income for the first three years. She relied on pocket money from her parents.
Karishma is getting trolled on social media platforms after Humans of New York founder Brandon Stanton’s reaction and accusations of copying his idea.
Karishma Mehta founded Humans of Bombay, a storytelling platform in India similar to Humans of New York, as a Facebook page in 2014. It has gained a large following since then.
A lawsuit was recently filed by the platform against People of India for copyright infringement in the Delhi High Court, which Brandon was not happy about.

2nd ODI: India sets the target of 400 runs for Australia
Both KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan attacked to get the game off to an exciting start.
India wants to put Australia under strain as it chases down 400 runs in the second ODI in Mohali by taking some early wickets. Earlier, India had a strong start, thanks to hundreds runs partnership from Shreyas Iyer (105) and Shubman Gill (104) before Suryakumar Yadav showed off his finishing prowess with a 72 not out off 37. After being asked to bat first, India amassed a mammoth 399 for 5 in 50 overs.
Both KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan attacked to get the game off to an exciting start. Australian bowlers knocked out Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill, but then they were contended with Rahul and Kishan.
Individual centuries from Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer, who both put up outstanding performances, furthered India’s overwhelming lead against Australia in the second ODI. After Sean Abbott removed Shreyas Iyer from the game, KL Rahul, the captain, is moving the game along with Shubman Gill.
Australia chose to bowl first after winning the toss. Team India got off to a sluggish start, and Ruturaj Gaikwad left early, but Shreyas Iyer eventually joined them. Shreyas Iyer was hitting Australian bowlers in all directions with Shubman Gill.
At the Holkar International Stadium in Indore, the Australian team will face the KL Rahul-led Indian team. With a victory in Indore, India will attempt to clinch the three-match series, while Australia will be looking for a way to salvage the match.
Since normal skipper Pat Cummins is taking a break, Steve Smith is leading Australia. In the meantime, Prasidh Krishna has taken the place of Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah in the starting lineup.
The low boundaries of the Holkar Stadium will suit the hitters in the second One-Day International between India and Australia, which is predicted to be a high-scoring contest. The last time India played at Indore was in January of this year, when the team was captained by Rohit Sharma, who scored a massive 385 runs together with opening partner Shubman Gill.
