Life is challenging for many of us. There are days when we're not at our best and find it difficult to do the bare minimum. In these times of struggle, what keeps us going are inspiring stories that we come across on the internet. Whether it's a specially-abled person working hard to make a living or a young boy delivering food after his father's accident - such stories make us count our blessings and realise how trivial our problems are.

Try to help as much as possible), read the caption of the post. Take a look at the video here:
