India is one of the most loved tourist places for foreigners. People from across different European and American countries arrive in India for a long vacation and interact with local people.

Recently, a Russian influencer Mariia Chugurova took to her Instagram to share a delightful video of her encounter with a local cobbler. The viral video captures the beautiful bonding between Mariia and the cobbler, identified as Vikas. The video has left viewers impressed.

In the viral video, Mariia is seen dressed in a yellow kurti and walking on the road when her sandal snaps. “Chappal tut gaya” (sandal is broken),” she hears and approaches a cobbler. During the repair, the Russian girl asks about the cobbler’s name, and how many years he has been working.

To this, the cobbler revealed that he has been working for the past 26 years. He also left Mariia pleasantly surprised by the cobbler’s modest charge of just Rs 10 for the repair. She also expressed her gratitude with a sweet ‘Dhannyavad’ (thank you).

The best part about the video is that the cobbler interacts with Mariia fluently in the English.

Sharing the video on Instagram, Mariia wrote, “India always has a way of turning potential disasters into quirky adventures. Enter my slipper savior, a man whose slipper-repair skills were so legendary, he might as well have been a cobbler superhero 🦸♂️ In no time, my slipper was back in action, probably stronger than it had ever been LOL!”

The video has gone viral and has amassed 68 millions views and adorable reactions from social media users.
