The heartbreaking photo of a Mumbai autorickshaw driver who lets his two-year-old son sleep on his lap went viral prompting people to open their heart and wallet.

Few days back Mumbai autorickshaw driver Mohammad Saeed's wife, Yasmine suffered a stroke and was paralysed. Left with no choice, Saeed had to take his two-year-old son to work, while his younger daughter is left in the care of his neighbours. With his son on his lap Saeed drove around the city looking for customers. 

A film director tweeted a photo of Saeed with his son and asked people to help. The photo touched a raw nerve and it immediately went viral.

Ever since the tweet, Saeed has received a huge number of calls from common citizens wanting to help. "I received some money. I don’t know how much it is; I will go to the bank and check. I also received countless calls from people who want to donate and help. Doctors have said they will treat my wife for free," he told HT.

He is grateful for all the help and thanks everyone. "I have faith in Mumbai and myself. I have always done the right work and never cheated anyone. I thank everyone who offered to help me."

Faith in humanity restored and a big salute to Mumbaikars.
