Cyclone Yaas has ravaged the regions of Odisha and West Bengal. The landfall caused flooding and stormy winds in the region yesterday. Amid the serious information being relayed, a funny clip of a new anchor covering the story has gone viral on social media.
The people of Odisha have been experiencing ‘very severe cyclonic storm’ Yaas from the last two days. People have been cautioned to not venture out of their homes and stay safe with precautions. In such inclement weather conditions, the reporter for Naxatra News wanted to show the recklessness of people who were roaming outside on the roads. He stopped one person and enquired live on channel. The man’s quirky response became a comedy segment for all.
The reporter asked the man, “A gusty storm is approaching, there are strong winds, so why have you stepped out of the house?” To this the man responded, “I have stepped out because you have come out too.”
When the reporter said that the need of news channels to cover the issue has made him to step out, the man replied, “If we don’t come out then whom will you show on the news channels?”
This funny video clip has gone viral on social media after Naxatra news shared it on Facebook. It was shared on Twitter by IPS officer Arun Bothra who captioned it sarcastically saying, “Such a kind hearted man. Doing so much for the humanity. Respect.”
Such a kind hearted man. Doing so much for the humanity.
