Social media is a bliss at times and can easily help change anyone’s life. Today, the internet came across one such situation that put faith in humanity during these trying times.

In Delhi’s Malviya Nagar, an elderly couple runs a small home-cooked food joint making just enough to buy for the next day’s menu or not even that. They have done this for 30 long years. Few days ago, Vasundhara Tankha Sharma posted a video by a food blogger featuring the couple and said it “completely broke my heart”. She urged the people of Delhi to “please, please go eat at Baba ka Dhaba in Malviya Nagar”.
