The couple, who were not able to earn their bread for two days due to the corona virus and lockdown, today the crowd has gathered outside their dhaba. All this has been possible through his viral video. In which the elderly person gets emotional saying their problem.
Thousands of people appealed on social media to help Kanta Prasad and Badami Devi, who run a dhaba in Malviya Nagar, Delhi. Many people also came forward to help, including the common people as well as politicians, celebs and companies.
Zomato has even listed Baba’s Dhaba. This information was tweeted by the company itself, after which #zomato also started trending on Twitter.
Kanta Prasad is very happy after receiving such response from the people. He told that, ‘Our condition had become very bad after the lockdown. We used to open shops at 6-7 in the morning and cook by 9:30, but no customers came. On Thursday morning, I opened the shop at 6 o’clock and by 9 o’clock all the food was sold. People are giving us a lot of love. Our fate changed overnight. ‘
