Watch how Twitterati helped 79-year-old medicinal plant seller in Bengaluru

The power of social media is evident yet again.

This time Twitterati got together to help a 79-year-old medicinal plant seller in Bengaluru.

After a tweet highlighting his condition and seeking help for Revanna Siddappa went viral and even caught the attention of actor Randeep Hooda, people from all walks of life came together to help him.

Changemakers of Kanakapura Road - a federation of NGOs and Resident Welfare Associations provided him a table, a chair, a canopy and more plants to sell.

This comes weeks after an old couple running a roadside eatery in Delhi got help from people after their video seeking help went viral on social media.
