The Internet is not lacking in inspirational videos. However, there is something extremely special about young children refusing to give up and seeing their challenges through. There is no doubt that their untainted innocence, grit and dedication make for lovely videos, but they also serve as the right dose of inspiration to several adults on the Internet. A recent video of a seven-year-old footballer that has gone viral on social media platforms is a testament to this. A clip shared on Twitter by IAS officer MV Rao features a child attempting to climb a pillar. Though he slips several times, the little one makes it to the top and remembers to celebrate the achievement as soon as he hits the ground.
The caption to the video reads, “This kid is my guru.” Within 24 hours of being uploaded, the clip has garnered over 117k views. While several users mistook the child in the clip to be a girl, some in the comment section soon identified the kid as Arat Hosseini, a Liverpool Academy footballer. Arat is no stranger to social media and videos of his exercises and stunts performed under the supervision of his father have made a mark with Internet users.
