Among those to gush over this little boy is MP Shashi Tharoor. "Campaigning leaves little time for real life -- but this heartwarming story of the little boy who ran over a chicken with his cycle, and took it to hospital with whatever little money he had, deserves to be widely shared even if I have found it late."
The image of Derek holding the chicken on one hand and his savings on the other has been doing the rounds on social media since past few days.
“Always heartening to start your day with a profound story of innocence and kindness”, said Tuhin A Sinha an author.
The picture of Derek has received over one lakh likes and 76 thousand shares. While many found the boy’s gesture extremely innocent, others could not stop praising the responsible boy.
