A samaritan who came to the aid of an octogenerian couple running a small Dhaba in Malviya Nagar which was not giving any business to these poor n hapless couple during these pandemic days is being lauded all over.

He is an anchor of SWAD OFFICIAL who covers delicious foods n dishes in restaurants and dhabas in various localities of Delhi highlighting the popular dishes.

While on one such assignment, on enquiry, he noticed an old couple in a tiny Malviya Nagar Dhaba ( outlet) with no customer around, of just doing the business of merely rupees fifty, despite lot of food left, prepared by both of them with utmost dedication.

He curiously went there, checked their delicacies and found them very nicely cooked tasty dishes like the Daal, Paneer Mutter, Lauki sabzi, and badi Ki sabzi of soya bean n rice in good quality n self cooked chapaties but due to ongoing pandemic there was literally no customer.

He talked to them n was was shocked to experience their plight, especially when the old man in summer with his wife literally wept for no customer turning to him to buy the delicious food.

He was kind n generous enough to pay for that days’ entire cooked stuff assuring them of his support in the future as well.

Both husband n wife in their eighties cook several items daily in a small kitchen but were worried of literally no sale.

Sensing their plight this young boy made it a point to make this vedio viral in social media inorder to appeal to prospective customers to come n eat here n if possible help them financially as well and fortunately, his endeavour brought excellent results within two days.

He shared it tremendously highlighting their plight and explaining about their delicious food items.

Soon more than thirty lakhs of people watched the vedio with more than seventy thousand comments and hundreds of customers visiting their Dhaba in Malviya Nagar n enjoying delicious items.

This small temperory food stall probably has been sanctioned to them by MCD on a pavement. This old man has been running this eatery since 1970.

Todays, these octogenerian couple are the happiest lot blessing the anchor of SWAD OFFICIAL portal urging people to come to their food stall.

The people tremendously shared this vedio and donated too with more than two n a half lakh rupees collected in just two days, handed over to thus couple with rush of customers enhancing each day to eat their delicious mutter paneer etc.

This is indeed a novel example of this young man of SAWAD OFFICIAL samaritan coming to the aid of this old couple being lauded all over by one and all. Let’s all of us imitate such instances and do a little bit of good work to inculcate a feeling of helping those who are actually in need, especially during these deadly pandemic days. WOW.
