Forget Veer-Zaara, Main Hoon Na, Mission Milap - and dare we say, Twitter's favourite account Bobbywood. There's a new wallet in town that has brought together Indians and Pakistanis more than any other political strategy.
Ghazi Taimoor, a Pakistani living in London, came across a brown wallet, full of bank cards belonging to a certain Rahul, on Shoreditch High street. Taimoor then took to Twitter and vowed to return the wallet back to its rightful owner and took the social media users on a hunt to find Rahul.
"Guys! Just found this wallet on Shoreditch High street. The name on the bank card suggests the wallet belongs to a Rahul R******. Time to HUNT RAHUL DOWN. Will update y’all," he tweeted.

I’d have gladly run behind you blasting this on a boombox as you ran across Shoreditch! 😄 Well done - what a story! I wish you were around when I lost my wallet in London back in 2018 leaving my overseas travel plans for the next day canceled! https://t.co/KgQi6d7bYi— Sam👨⚕️🩺 (@DocsDoItBetter) July 30, 2021

Taimoor then expressed his gratitude on Twitter and shared, "I’m slightly teary-eyed Pleading face as I type this, but I’m GRATEFUL for so much kindness and love I’ve received from strangers in this past one day. It’s been a terribly tough year for us all and it’s little acts of kindness that make this world a better place to live in."
