meant the world to them
Over the past few days, heavy rains have flooded the streets of Kolkata, India, leaving humans and animals checking out a secure place within the storm. So it seemed only natural to Constable Tarun Kumar Mandal that he should help those in need.
Last Saturday, Mandal was monitoring traffic at a busy seven-way crossing when he received some unexpected company. Two wet stray dogs spotted him standing within the middle of the road and flocked to him.
The compassionate cop offered the 2 dogs shelter under his large umbrella and continued directing traffic.
A passerby snapped a photograph of the tiny act of kindness and shared it on social media, touching people from round the world. and therefore the look on the dogs’ faces says it all:
With an estimated 35 to 40 million stray dogs in India — one among the very best populations within the world — there is a great distance to travel to assist these animals. But the Kolkata police attempt to step in wherever they will when there is a dog in need of rescue or simply an area to rest.
And for the 2 grateful street dogs, the instant of respite meant the planet .
