Prabhu shared this post on her Facebook on December 26. “Today I met a Santa in real life. My sister Leena and I took an auto rickshaw and when we reached our destination, I descended from the auto and turned to pay the driver. It was then that I found myself staring straight into two beautiful brown eyes, observing me curiously from beside the driver’s seat! “, reads off the post detailing.

It then goes onto say, “ It was a tiny pup, snug on a thick rug inside the curve of the auto and with a fancy leash”. Prabhu then describes how Singh’s son had brought the puppy home and named him Ronnie. The post also shares how Ronnie has now become Singh’s little travel companion in his auto.

Prabhu ends the share by writing, “The photograph was more to remind me that there were always some good souls in the world who were real Santas in different ways for different beings, doing their acts of kindness consistently, quietly and away from the spotlight. And as long as such people existed, there was still hope in the world “.
