Pandemic has not been easy for anyone. However, it has been worst for daily wage earners. But inspirational stories like this give us hope. There is light, this 80- year old dadi is proof of it.
Like internet helped Baba ka Dhaba and, people actually went around and ate at the stall. Recently, journalist Aarif Shah took to Twitter to share a video of an 80-year-old woman selling juice on the roadside.
He captioned the post with all the details and urged people to go and support her. I hope this helps her earn a living.

It is the duty of Government to provide basic Universal income to all elderly people. It is their right. At such age we should not let them work beyond their capacity. Please let me know if there is any way to help her, I would love too.— Ajinkya Vyawahare ( Fan of Thanos Chacha) (@vajinkya16) July 28, 2021

It’ll be a whole lot easier for people to help her since most of us can’t visit there personally.
Can we pool in and buy her a juicer. Do you have her coordinates?— Elizabeth Dsouza (@ElizabethDsouz6) July 28, 2021
Let’s spread the word and help her get more customers.
