Social Media has become a great medium for brands to interact with their audience. But in the past few days, social media is filled up with toxic content and online users were feeling the heat before Baba Ka Dhaba from Delhi went viral all across India with people showing their support to the needy ones. This gives a ray of hope that like any other technology, the Internet if used well can do wonders for our lives.
The craze for Baba Ka Dhaba is so much that even brands came to support them and Zomato even announced by listing the place on the platform so that people can easily order online. This made people more about helping the street stalls and many have been trying to replicate the noble cause.
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 this ❤️

Now, there’s an appeal for another such place called Kanji Bade Wala in Agra which is run by a 90-year-old. Even if this is happening just for the sake of following an online trend, this makes us think about visiting supporting local vendors more than ever. Not just food stalls, this can be followed for vegetable vendors, fruit sellers, diya makers to any other small businesses around us.

My kanji bada wale uncle 😁 He has been selling kanji badas for almost 40 years and as of today, he is 90 years old. Because of this pandemic he gets to earn only ₹250-₹300 in a day. His stall is in professors colony, Kamla nagar, Agra, near desire Bakery. I’ve been here earlier also and I hope you guys also come here, eat and help him as much as you can. You’ll find him here everyday, from 5:30pm. Also, if you know such places in Agra, DM me. I will try to meet and help them all and will tell everyone about them. All of us should help those in need. Start from your own area, your city and then see how it all changes and let’s try to highlight every story we are able to. #vocalforlocal #vocal #old #viral #supportlocal #foodvideo #viralvideos
