Internet is a storehouse of different types of content - some are funny and entertaining, while others tug our heartstrings. Remember 'Baba ka Dhaba' - the humble eatery from Delhi's Malviya Nagar - that became an overnight sensation due to one social media post?! Since then, several food content creators are volunteering to share stories of such small vendors on as many platforms. One such story that is doing the rounds on the internet is of a 70-year-old couple, who are trying to earn a living by selling tarri poha and aloo bonda on the streets of Nagpur, that too for Rs. 10 and Rs. 15 respectively. Nagpur blogger duo Vivek and Ayesha took to their Instagram handle 'eatographers' to share a video featuring the septuagenarian couple. "This 70-year-old couple was unable to pay the rent. So, they started selling tarri poha for a living," the post read.
The couple started the eatery four years ago and has been operational since then. "They wake up early in the morning, prepare everything and come here at 5am (so sell poha and bonda)," the post further read.
Take a look at the heart-warming video:
This video was uploaded week back and since then, it went viral garnering more than 11million views on Instagram. That's not all. It received thousands of comments and hundreds of shares across social media.
"Smile on their face. I really wish people stop giving money in all the spiritual places and instead help hard working humans," read a comment. Another person wrote, "Bhai khaya hu inke taraf ka tarri poha it's awesome (I ate their tarri poha and it's delicious)."
"How can we help them," asked another Instagram user.
