A heartening video of relief material being distributed is Manipur is winning much praise from people on Twitter. The video shows the orderly and respectful way in which food and other materials are distributed and tweeple cannot help but shower words of appreciation for this system.
The video has been shared by Twitter user Supriya Sahu IAS. The video shows several tables with food and other relief materials laid on them. One by one, individuals are seen walking by each table and picking up the things they need. What’s even more wonderful is how people standing behind the tables greet each individual with folded hands.
“Look at the wonderful way relief material is being distributed in Manipur. Dignity and respect for everyone in the entire process. So much to learn from this beautiful state in India. All DCs/District Collectors should emulate this,” says the tweet posted along with the video.
