Fifteen-year-old Eiduha Iqbal has become an overnight sensation, thanks to a viral video on Twitter that shows her reporting on the heavy snowfall in her state.
A blanket of snow covers Jammu & Kashmir right now. The northern-most state in the country in under the grip of a cold wave and images from the state show it covered in thick snow.
While most people are opting to stay indoors in the extreme weather, children in the Shopian district of the Kashmir Valley are not allowing the cold weather get to them. Some even got together to build a 'secret cave' where the snow covered a building up to the first floor. And as they did, 15-year-old Eiduha Iqbal 'reported' about it in her video. Holding a marble stick in place of a microphone, in her amusing 'piece-to-camera' Ediuha reported the 'cave' was being used for hiding from parents and studies. She also spoke about the intense snowfall in the state, reported Indian Express.
The 19-second video has gone viral, and is being applauded for its fun, unique content, reports DNA India.
Explaining the reason behind the tunnel made by the children, Eiduha said,
The children constructed the tunnel to escape their studies as their parents made them study throughout the day. The parents aren’t aware of the tunnel yet.
The video was shared on Twitter by Fahad Shah on February 8, and since then it has been retweeted 1,426 times and has been liked by 47,000 people. Journalists across the country and in Kashmir have been applauding the young girl for her skills in making the lively video.
