Not everyone has the opportunity to experience all the wonders the world has to offer. For some, it is easy access to mountains while for others, it is beaches. Many folks even spend most of their lives without knowing how it feels to dance with the waves. Witnessing someone experience the beach for the first time is invariably a heartwarming sight. One such cheerful moment was caught on camera by Farid Elkhanson–who goes by @faridelkhanson on TikTok. The beautiful video went viral with over 6 million views. It shows the immeasurable joy of an Indian man who was having the best time of his life on a beach.

"Met a man from India who had never been at the beach. He asked me if I could record him," Elkhanson mentioned in the text overlay. In the video, a man wearing a red turban and black shorts is seen standing in the water, a little away from the shore. Apparently, he wanted to capture one of the best moments in his life and requested Elkhanson to take a video rather than just a picture. The Indian man then started jumping with joy amidst the crashing waves and even let out screams of excitement. He also danced a little in the water and seemed to be enjoying the delightful vibes of the beach. To see a grown man brimming with the enthusiasm of a child was absolutely wholesome. It even made Elkhanson laugh out loud and exclaim, "Happy man."

The man took his sweet time flapping his hands and jumping in the water as the subtle waves splashed around him. Elkhanson rightly pointed out in the captions, "Don't take things for granted," implying how even little things bring so much joy in life. Nearly 13K comments poured in for this video. "Why did this bring tears to my eyes? I live ten minutes from the beach, yet can't remember the last time I've been. We take so much for granted," commented @urdreamgirll2001. "The way he says 'happy man' and takes in the moment with him instead of bringing him down or laughing like so many are used to these days," pointed out @issakeegs. "From my dorm window, I watched international students see and play with snow for the first time. It was so sweet and magical. I'll never forget it," wrote @suziehomemaker.



 

Speaking of first-time beach visits, here's another wholesome instance. Two-year-old Joey Leathwood, who has cerebral palsy, was able to enjoy the beach waters for the first time in his life and the credits went to a specialized wheelchair. As per the Independent, the wheelchair that provided a headrest and harness to support the boy whose muscles were impaired was given by a charity.  As the waves crashed on his wheelchair, the boy couldn't control his excitement and laughed to his heart's content. His parents were deeply touched by seeing his happiness. "It was probably one of the most special moments of my life, seeing his reaction," the boy's mother told the outlet.
