Next day after being viral 1000 of people reached out to the place bought food and supported them through monetary basis. Many bloggers, actors, media, politicians, NGO’s and people have contributed for them.
How ‘Baba ka Dhaba’ started?
In 1961, when they both moved to Delhi at the age of 21 they started with a fruit stall but as they were growing and glowing older they planned to open ‘Baba ka Dhaba’ at Malviya Nagar, Delhi in 1990. It took 69 years to them what they have wished.
Who is behind this venture?
A couple Kanta Prasad and her wife Badami Devi runs this venture from past 30 years at Malviya Nagar Delhi. They have 3 children two sons and one daughter and nobody helps them. They do their work by themselves. They came at morning 6 and till 9 they complete making food to sell. They says before lockdown people use to visit the place but after lockdown, it became less.
How ‘Baba ka Dhaba’ went viral?
Two days back a food blogger went to this place in Malviya Nagar and got mesmerised with the taste of food and the enthusiasm of the old couple selling food at the age of 80. He decided to help them and by luck, the video went viral around the social networking sites and became a headline of media channels. The initiative of one brought them thousands of supporters. They have to close early the next day after the video went viral as all the food got sold. From politicians to Ngo’s to actors to the general public. They got immense love.
