The video has garnered nearly 11,000 views.

The annual Kanwar Yatra began on July 14 and it will end on July 26. During this time, lakhs of Lord Shiva devotees travel to Hindu pilgrimage places of Haridwar, Gaumukh and Gangotri in Uttarakhand, and Sultanganj in Bihar, to fetch the holy waters of River Ganga. 

Every year, photos and videos of the devotees travelling barefoot with heavy loads surface on social media. However, this year, a video of a man carrying his old parents on his shoulders during the Kanwar Yatra has gone viral. The short clip was shared on Twitter by Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Ashok Kumar. 

Watch the video below: 

The clip showed a man carrying his old parents on a scale. He replaced the scale's containers with small chairs and carried his mother and father on his shoulders. 

"Nowadays, old parents are despised, they are thrown out of the house or not allowed to live with their children. Whereas, today the opposite view was seen. There is a Shravan Kumar among lakhs of Shiva devotees who have come on a Kanwar Yatra with his elderly parents in a palanquin. My respects!" read IPS Kumar's caption, when translated into English.
