Mumbai experienced an unprecedented spectacle as thousands of cricket fans swarmed the streets to celebrate Team India’s victory parade from Marine Drive to Wankhede Stadium. The electrifying atmosphere was filled with the resounding chant of “Bleed Blue!” However, amidst the celebration, the sheer scale of the gathering led to some mishaps. One notable incident involved a man losing his phone, a story that quickly went viral on Reddit.

A cricket enthusiast shared a heartwarming story on the ‘The Indian Social’ subreddit about finding a phone at Marine Lines. The phone had a family photo attached to its back, and the post read, “Found a phone yesterday at Marine Lines.” The fan detailed his predicament: “What to do it has no network access so the owner can’t call me, maybe he blocked the device. I really wanted to help him but if I have it to police it will take a lot of time to reach him. He doesn’t have any emergency contacts either, the fone [phone] had no battery either.”

He added, “He tried calling me yesterday but i couldn’t do anything i…”

The post quickly gained attention, with many offering solutions. One user suggested, “Charge it up and carry with you, kabhi toh network ayega and maybe call bhi!!” Another recommended, “Truecaller for the win. It has a wide range of uses from identifying spam calls to connecting lost mobile owners.” A third user advised, “If the network shows up you can just pull out the sim and put in other phone and see any contacts saved on sim which could be his relatives or parents.”

Another commenter praised the original poster, saying, “Not many do what you did, Your parents did a good job raising you.”

Fortunately, the original poster soon provided an update: “I found the owner, thankyou all for helping. This is how I did it. I put his sim in my phone. I got his contact. I searched true caller and got his email. I emailed him. Got his reply and now he is finally taking a sigh of relief.”

This heartwarming story highlights the power of social media and the kindness of strangers, showing that even in the bustling city of Mumbai, there’s always room for humanity.
