An 80-year-old couple running an eatery in the Malviya Nagar area of South Delhi had lost all their hopes, as nobody was consuming their food. They are spending more on cooking and are unprofitable as people favor international food chains over local food stalls.
The street food culture of Delhi is badly affected. Many people are not consuming street foods due to safety and hygiene reasons. Thus, small businesses like Baba ka Dhaba are getting no customers to consume their food.
A video posted on Instagram by a food reporter and blogger Gaurav Wasan aka @youtubeswadofficial got over 7 million views on Instagram that eventually brought the much-needed smile on their faces.
