The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly caused irreversible losses to businesses. The restaurant industry, specifically, has seen a series of openings and closures in the past two years. So, when an orphaned brother duo from Amritsar was seen making a heartfelt plea to save their restaurant, it struck a chord with thousands of users across the internet. Twitter user Amarjit Singh shared a clip of these two brothers who are single-handedly running a restaurant in Amritsar after their father's demise. Take a look at the clip here:
Shared on Twitter by user @aj_straightup, the video has received over 250k views and 6.3k likes. "Loved the courage & their spirit. Give them a go on your next Amritsar trip," wrote the user in his tweet. The video was originally posted by YouTube food blogger 'Amritsar Walking Tours'.
In the 2 minute, 20-second clip, the brothers Jaishandeep and Anshdeep Singh took the viewers around their restaurant called 'Top Grill'. They serve fast food items like pizza, burger, sandwiches and shakes. They had just opened the eatery three months ago, but sadly their father passed away in December 2021. This left the two young brothers in charge of the restaurant business, right from the cooking to managing the finances. They are now inviting customers in order to be able to pay rent and make a living for themselves and their family. While the elder brother, Jaishandeep is 17 years old, Anshdeep is only 11.
The clip caught the attention of businessman and Mahindra group chairman Anand Mahindra, who wrote a heartfelt message for the courageous brothers running the restaurant. Take a look:
These kids are amongst the pluckiest I've seen anywhere. May they soon have lines of people waiting to get in to the restaurant. I love Amritsar & usually look forward to the world's best Jalebis in the city, but I'm going to add this place to my food binge when I'm next in town. pic.twitter.com/J4i3IPW3IO— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) February 5, 2022
