The Internet is a place which often presents us with such images that never fail to tug at our heartstrings. Case in point, the image of an elderly couple captured by Kolkata based photographer Sudip Chakraborty, is having the same effect on many. There’s a chance that it’ll warm up your heart too.

Shared by Chakraborty on Instagram and Facebook, the image is simple yet powerful. It shows an elderly married couple travelling in Kolkata metro.

What captured people attention is that the woman is seen wrapping a muffler around the man’s neck – portraying a sweet moment of love.

The image was captured on the last metro of the day as it was approaching Kavi Subhas station, Chakraborty told Hindustan Times.

The posts were flooded with tons of comments with people appreciating the heartwarming moment captured in the image.

“It’s a beautiful picture!” wrote a Facebook user. “I believe in this kinda relationship,” said another. “Old is really gold,” wrote an Instagram user. “Such a meaningful frame,” exclaimed another. “A frame to be remembered for a long time,” wrote the third.

“I saw an elderly couple, where the wife was putting a muffler around her husband. I took several shots, and had later interacted with them after deboarding at the station to know that they reside in Patuli, Baishnabghata township,” said Chakraborty.

Eventually, the image also made its way onto Twitter where people were elated to see it. There a few pointed out something in the image which clearly adds on to its heartening aspect.

It’s the tagline of the LIC ad which can be seen in the image’s background.
