A clip of the moment between the bus driver and his trusty vehicle is going viral on the internet. Twitter user Nowshath A shared a clip of the driver sitting in his usual spot on the bus as he said goodbye to a vehicle that had been partly his for over a decade.

In the clip, the driver turns off the engine and strokes parts of the bus as if he were stroking a human’s head. Muthupandi, the 60-year-old driver from Madurai, arrived for work on his last day at the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation and emotionally said goodbye to the bus he was driving.

Muthupandi kisses the steering wheel of the bus and joins hands to pay homage to the vehicle that had been his companion. She then got off the bus and stood in front of him to give him a big hug. The former driver also kissed the bumper of the bus, wiping away tears after doing so.
