Kerala is witnessing terrible floods all over again like 2018. Floods have entered homes and brought normal life to a standstill in many parts of the state. While rescue and relief operations are in full swing in Kerala, some people are trying to set their priorities right. Video of a group of men carefully taking a beer bottle out of a flooded shop in Kerala has gone viral on social media. And the internet can't stop talking about the Malayali 'Spirit' which is quite lively even in such terrible conditions. Kerala Rains: Death Toll Rises to 60, IMD Issues Red Alert For 8 Districts.
The clip shows a man coming out of the building holding something in his hand. With knee-deep water flooding the area, he cannot step outside. So he signals the men that he is going to throw the beer bottle towards them. The video shows the men carefully aiming and throwing the bottle which gets caught by one of the men standing on the other side. He hands it over to another man who smilingly shows off the catch. The video was posted on Twitter with the caption, "Humanity restored." 23 Trains Cancelled in Flood-hit Kerala.
