    Hyderabad, April 4: If you are thinking love, compassion and humanity are just bookish words; then you definitely need to rethink. The recent viral picture of a Hyderabad traffic policeman feeding a poor, old and destitute woman on a street reiterates our faith in humanity, which we thought is long "dead".

    Thanks to the kind gesture of Kukatpally Traffic Police Station home guard, B Gopal, for feeding the homeless woman with his hands near Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), the picture of which went viral, today the old woman has a roof over her head.

    On Monday, chief public relations officer to Telangana DGP, Harsha Bhargavi, tweeted to inform that the destitute woman has been shifted to an old age home.

    "Not just left behind... the old woman is shifted by Cyberabad Police to Anand Ashramam (an old age home in) Cherlapally with the help of jail authorities," Bhargavi tweeted.

    It is the tweet (below) accompanied by the picture of Gopal feeding the homeless woman that garnered wide-scale appreciation for the policeman who went beyond the call of duty to take care of a helpless person.

    When reporters asked Gopal what pushed him to feed the woman, the cop said that he was moved by her deplorable state. He not only bought puris and curry for the old woman but also fed her with his hands as she was too weak to eat on her own. "I took care of the woman like my mother," Gopal said.

    People on social media simply could not stop praising the traffic policeman.

    Really, we need more "heroes" like Gopal to look after those who have been abandoned by society.
