In the video, we see an 85-year-old man selling chikki and gajak on foot, with just a basket on his head. The old man is shivering while selling the winter snacks, showing his frail and weak condition. But despite his health, he still sells his product through the cold winter. The man spends his days roaming around Nehru Place, Delhi, in an attempt to sell the chikki and gajak only at INR 10. The video is shared by Instagram food blogger @thefoodiehat. He wanted to spread the story of the old man so that people could help him by buying the snacks he's selling. In his attempt to do so, the video achieved 4.3 million views and 533 thousand likes!
