Visually Impaired Street Vendor Displays The True Meaning Of Wealth
Mar 15, 2015
In this touching video, Varun approaches a visually impaired street food seller and buys two samosas, a popular Indian snack, and tries to offer him way more than the snack is worth. Startlingly, the man refuses.
This attitude has been documented elsewhere, and even clinical studies have found that people with very little tend to be (proportionately) more generous than those who have a lot.
Varun Pruthi is a popular Indian YouTube star who releases short clips to his channel every week. Most of the videos have a social awareness element to them. Some are rehearsed, scripted scenes that he performs with other YouTubers, but many of his videos (like this one) feature him in the real world with just a hidden camera.
