Twitter user IMShubham shared a couple of pictures of Revana Siddappa and told the internet his exact location on Monday. He also added that the plants that Siddappa sells cost somewhere between Rs 10 – Rs 30. Shubham tagged a couple of people including Randeep Hooda, Ranganathan Madhavan and IFS officer Parveen Kaswan in his tweet.

Once he shared the details, the tweet went viral. It garnered over 2.2k retweets and 6.2k likes. It also grabbed the attention of Randeep Hooda and Ranganathan Madhavan. Randeep Hooda went to the comments section of the tweet and asked for further details.

Once again the Internet worked its magic and has taken initiative to bring a smile on Siddappa’s face. In the times of pandemic and social-distancing, it brings people closer to lend to those who need it the most.
