Some good-natured people in Surat city of Gujarat adopted a unique way to help daily wagers. It has been learnt that a man arrived with a truck and announced to distribute 1-1 kg of flour to the poor. Upon hearing this announcement, many needy people gathered there and everyone got a packet of 1 kg flour. When people opened the flour packet at home, then 15,000 rupees were also released.

People were surprised by seeing such a huge amount inside the flour. They thanked him from the bottom of their heart.
