As our parents get older, their sharp edges change and they somehow begin to morph back into children. From their hunched shoulders to their shrinking frames, everything about our parents starts to get a little too adorable as they get older.
A 76-year-old man’s test walk with his luggage before a train journey goes viral
A video going viral on Instagram of an elderly father is causing “wow” across the internet. The clip was shared by journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi on Instagram. She caught a glimpse of how her 76-year-old father was no greater in spirit than a small child.
In the video, the petite man is seen walking through his backyard. He was strapped with luggage, carrying a bag on his shoulders, dragging a stroller with one hand and holding a small suitcase in the other. The old man took a quick test walk through his house to find out if he could walk to the train station with his wife while he carried all the luggage or if he would need a coolie to accomplish the feat.
Kalanidhi celebrated her rock star father, writing in the caption: “My 76 year old father doing a test walk at home before leaving for his trip to see if he can walk Chennai railway station with my mother without having to hire a coolie #Father SeniorCitizenSpunk Rockstar”.
