Thiruvananthapuram : While the God’s own country continues to struggle to get back to the normal life, a case of social media troll inspired many others to come forward and help the state with everything needed. This story is about Hanan, a 21-year-old B.Sc student at a private college at Thodupuzha in Idukki district who was recently trolled on social media for selling fish right outside her college to meet her educational needs. Trashing the troll, the young girl turned out to be a real inspiration to the world as she donated Rs 1.5 lakh to the Chief Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund keeping the Kerala flood in mind. She has worked as an anchor and flower girl for programmes to make ends meet. If we go by the reports trending on the social media, her story had gone viral after a Malayalam daily reported her struggles, but later she was trolled by a section of users who thought that her struggle story was ‘fake’.
In an interview to the media, the young girl said that the money was donated by various people after her struggle to fund her studies and take care of her family was widely shared on the social media. She expressed her gratitude to those who helped her and said that she is happy to give back to the society by helping the needy.
After the Malayalam daily reported her struggler and the social media troll was trashed, Kerala’s Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan came in support of Hanan and also praised her efforts and appealed people to take inspiration from her actions and work for the betterment of humanity in the situation of emergency.
