Baba Ka Dhaba’s broken-hearted video sent the internet into a spiral

There’s no denying most of us have been badly impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak in one way or the other, be it health, finance, lifestyle or adjusting to the new normal. Things changed drastically in the last seven months, particularly in the case of small businesses.

Delhi-based food blogger Gaurav Wasan recently headed to ‘Baba Ka Dhaba,’ a tiny food stall owned by 80-year-old Kanta Prasad and his wife, cooking rice and rotis served with two curries. After talking through their offerings and prices at “half rate,” Wasan made a generous offer buying all the dishes they’ve cooked. To which, Prasad broke down into tears as he was promised more people will visit your stall and make a donation.

Wasan’s video made its rounds on social media with thousands of users sharing Prasad’s story. Not to mention its viral outreach, celebrities like Sunil Shetty, Sonam Kapoor, Nimrat Kaur and Randeep Hooda reshared the clip encouraging their followers to support the food stall.

For those residing in Delhi, you can visit their store and here’s the address: Address: Block B, Shivalik Colony, Opposite Hanuman Mandir. Malviya Nagar, New Delhi, Delhi 110017
