A under-construction flyover in the bustling city of Kolkata collapsed on Thursday killing at least 26 and injuring over 100.
While politicians pointed fingers at each other, the city's residents instead quietly stood in lines and helped out in any way that they could. Like:
Universities like Jadavpur University and Presidency University organised blood donation camps.
The Sikh community yet again showed why it's best side
RSS activists helped the Army in saving lives.
