The video of an elderly couple who are running a small dhaba in Delhi’s Malviya Nagar area is going viral on social media. The name of the dhaba is ‘Baba’s Dhaba.’ Like others, the business also hit its nadir during the coronavirus.

Owing to the halt in business the couple seemed upset. When a man talked to the husband who runs the stall, he could not handle his grief and started crying. The video became quite popular on social media, following which, many big celebrities called on social media to help them. IPL franchise Delhi Capitals also appealed to Delhiites to support Baba’s Dhaba.

Retweeting the video, Delhi Capitals wrote, ‘Although times are difficult, but Delhi’s heart is still an example today?’

‘Delhiites, today in this challenging time our local business needs your help. So from tomorrow, these tears turn into tears of joy.

Apart from this, cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin also said to the woman who tweeted the video, ‘I am not able to message you but is there any way I can help this person ?? I would like to cooperate. ‘

The owner of Baba ka Dhaba is Kanta Prasad. He starts cooking with his wife at 6:30 in the morning and prepares food by 9:30 AM. They have lentils, curries, paranthas, rice, pea-paneer and other vegetables.

Social media spun its magic with a video of Prasad tearfully recounting the desperation of the months since the lockdown being shared widely across platforms — and customers made a beeline to eat his food as did camera crews, bloggers and journalists.

A day after the heartbreaking video, #Babakadhaba was trending on Twitter and the food joint was flooded with more customers than it had seen in 30 years of being in business.
