In one of the rare good pieces of news this year, the elderly owners of Baba Ka Dhaba, Kanti Prasad and his wife, have opened a restaurant in Malviya Nagar.
The owner, Kanti Prasad, first shot to fame after a YouTuber uploaded a video of him requesting people to eat at his small, roadside eatery. Due to the pandemic, the footfall at his roadside eatery had dwindled down to nothing, and the couple didn't have enough savings to fall back upon.
However, the video went viral and people rallied to support him. And now it looks like all that support and financial aid has helped him and his wife set up a new restaurant.
