A video showing a man's unlikely friendship with a sarus crane is going viral on social media. The short clip was shared on Twitter by Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Awanish Sharan on Friday. It showed a sarus crane following a man driving a two-wheeler.
"Arif saved the life of an injured bird last year. Since then both are friends," Mr Sharan wrote in the caption in Hindi. He shared the video just a few hours ago and since then it has already accumulated more than 187,000 views and over 13,000 likes.

पिछले साल घायल हुए पक्षी की आरिफ ने जान बचाई. तब से दोनों की दोस्ती है.❤️ pic.twitter.com/8iOVzMBpuL— Awanish Sharan (@AwanishSharan) February 24, 2023
In the clip, the man, identified as Arif, is seen being followed by the bird as he rides his scooter. He drives through various roads in the area, from the ones covered with crops to the other populated areas. The sarus crane, on the other hand, does not waver even for a second and closely follows its friend by flying while he travels on the road.
Internet users were simply impressed by the special bond between the bird and the man. "True love and highest level of compassion....long live this friendship," wrote one user. "Love has no boundaries," said another.

Meanwhile, IAS Awanish Sharan frequently shares fascinating posts that pique the interest of internet users. Last month he shared a hard-hitting post about how life was much simpler before the evolution of smartphones and shiny gadgets. Through his tweet, Mr Sharan highlighted how the evolution of smartphones has impacted human beings to the point that we are no ''longer free''.
To emphasise his point, he shared a photo of a black-and-white telephone on a pedestal. "When the phone was tied with a wire - Humans were free," he wrote in the caption.Click for more trending news
