Now, Zomato has come forward to help the elderly couple and has listed Baba Ka Dhaba on their platform.

UPDATE: baba ka dhaba is now listed on zomato and our team is working with the elderly couple there to enable food deliveries thank you to the good people of the internet for bringing our attention to thi,” Zomato tweeted.

The couple had been selling home-cooked meals for 30 years, making just enough money to buy raw material for the next day’s menu or sometimes not even that. The story of their enhanced struggle due to the coronavirus pandemic went viral and several people came out in support of them.

It all started after a food blogger posted a video of the elderly couple on Wednesday. After that, Twitter user Vasundhara Tankha Sharma shared the video on the microblogging site, where it captured the attention of several Twitterati.

By morning, #BabaKaDhaba was trending on Twitter, and their small shop was flooded with customers.

“It feels like the whole of India is with us,” he told news agency ANI.

Various celebrities and public figures came out in support of the elderly couple and shared their videos and pictures on their social media handles.

In another video, “Baba” can be heard giving a meaningful message, “It is not just us…there are many others who need help, who don’t have a place to live, they should be helped too.”

Social media yet again proved its power to the world by changing not one but two lives overnight.
