A video clip of a 75-year-old woman performing Martial Arts skills using wooden sticks on the streets of India's Pune city is going viral on social media.
According to reports, the woman had to perform the skills in order to sustain herself amid the coronavirus lockdown.
In the video, she can be seen wearing a mask and juggling with two sticks like any master practitioner. After performing the skills, she is seen pleading to passersby for alms while pointing to her stomach to indicate her hunger.
