Grandma plays the piano in her home damaged by Beirut blast

Aug 06, 2020 19:31 IST

A video clip showing an elderly Lebanese woman playing the piano at home, surrounded by glass shards and rubble, has struck a chord with netizens. The image of resilience amidst devastation is being widely shared on social media, with people calling the woman 'incredibly poignant' and the 'spirit of Beirut.' Facebook user May Abboud Melki told The Guardian that it is her 79-year-old grandmother in the clip, which was recorded a day after the blast that has taken the lives of more than a 100 people. A Twitter user even said that the video reminds her of that 'scene in Titanic when the band plays music calmly while the ship is sinking.'
