    Somewhere in south Delhi, an elderly couple sells home-cooked meals from a tiny kiosk, making just enough to buy for the next day’s menu. They have done this for 30 long years.

    Last night, the story of their struggle in the coronavirus crisis went viral, moving thousands of people, including celebrities, cricketers and even companies.

    It all started with an Instagram post and a late night tweet.

    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”.

    This morning, “Baba Ka Dhaba” was among the top trends on Twitter. And a constant stream of customers could be seen at the kiosk.

    In the video shot by blogger Gaurav Vasan yesterday, 80-year-old Kanta Prasad shared that he and his wife Badami Devi start cooking at 6.30 am and are ready with the day’s meal by 9.30 am. Dal, curry, parathas and rice were kept in large dishes, ready to serve for around ₹ 30-50 a plate.

    Kanta Prasad, in an orange t-shirt and a mask hanging from his face, ran a ladle through what looked like mouthwatering matar-paneer.

    When he was asked how much he has earned, he broke down and produced ₹ 10 notes from a box. In four hours, ₹ 50 was all they had managed.

    They hardly ever made huge profits, but the pandemic has been devastating to their little enterprise. The couple gets no help from their children – two sons and a daughter.
