If you are losing hope for mankind, don’t. Despite what’s happening in the world today, there are still beautiful souls out there like this one from Delhi. Meet Pratima Devi. She’s a 65 year-old rag picker who earns Rs. 150 a day. With her income, she manages to feed herself and about 400 stray dogs every day.

To some it may seem impossible, but this lady has a kind heart to share whatever she has to dogs who weren’t given a chance to live a life with a family. That’s why, she won the hearts of  the people when her video went viral.

“I feel happy to live with them. When I was with my husband, I wasn’t happy. I used to work all day and run the house. My husband didn’t work. My son calls me all the time and tells me that he will take me to the village with him. But I don’t listen to him, I want to do good for the dogs.” Pratima Devi told

She feels responsible in taking care of all these dogs and she’s very happy in doing so. Vivek helps her to take care of the dogs. She doesn’t stop from feeding them, she cleans them and even have them vaccinated. To her, taking care of the dogs isn’t just a hobby. It’s a commitment she does every day. She treats them all as her own kids.
