New Delhi, India (BBN)-It’s hard not to love this photo of a father holding an umbrella over his little son on a rainy sidewalk.
Posted on imgur, it has been viewed over 3 million times since and it’s not difficult to figure out why. This is one of those times you strike gold on the Internet, reports NDTV.
This photograph has gone viral not just because drenched daddy and tiny son are adorable, but also because it holds a strong message.
As one imgur user points out in a comment, “Dad is doing more than keeping him dry. He’s teaching him how to put others before himself.”
One user suggested that dad could do better, however: “Give the umbrella to the kid. Hold the kid. Problem solved.”
Another noted that mom would have trumped dad: “A mum would have made sure the kid was sent to school with a raincoat on in the first place haha.”
But many commenters were on Team Dad: ‘What a great dad, very sweet!’
