A picture of a man bowing down before a Mumbai local train before boarding it surfaced on the internet with netizens admiring it for the humility of the Indian culture it represents.
The man was embarking on the rail after 11 months as local train services resumed operations on February 1, Monday, after coming to a screeching halt on March 22, 2020.
The picture, which has since gone viral, was shared with the caption "A click that touched my heart, a commuter worshipping Mumbai Local before boarding after 11 months." The viral image has over 26,000 likes and more than 3,000 retweets.
Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra also shared the image in a tweet, calling it the 'soul of India'.

Reacting to his tweet, one user said, "Anand Sir, the picture says so much...lifeline of Mumbai where millions commute to earn their living....it's a story in itself.. thanks for sharing, pray we never lose it."

It is this simplicity of the heart & the spiritual connect in every thought & action of ours...that is Indianness!
This simplicity & innocence can be witnessed in all parts of the country & it is this Indianness that binds us all!@SadhguruJV#IndianAtHeart

Very touching but often we don't understand the value of anything we have it, be it people or service. I only wish we treat the public property as our own when we have the privilege to use them, let's please maintain it as true citizens whose tax paying money is used to run those— Aravind Shankar (@ashankarx) February 3, 2021
