13yr old boy gets $7,500 after Facebook photo of him studying at Metro station goes viral.

13-year-old Harendra Singh Chauhan got a check for 500,000 rupees (approximately $7,500) from the Uttar Pradesh government after a photo of him studying on the ground outside the Noida City Centre metro station in Noida, India, went viral on Facebook.

Harendra was photographed outside the metro station with his notebooks and a scale where he was studying and at the same time weighing passers-by to make small money.

The post was shared by Vikas Sharda, who called on people at the station to use his services and help him get back to his studies. The post grabbed the attention of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who was moved by Chuahan's story and gave him the money to help fund his education.
