Love, compassion, and humanity go a long long way. Humans can do wonder if they want to. Social media has both negative and positive impacts on our youths today. But it is one of the best ways to reach a millennial audience, and it gets easier to help the needy.
Today we all have witnessed the power of Humanity and social media. A person named Gaurav Wasan posted a video on twitter of Delhi’s Malviya Nagar of an elderly couple who were seen distress after not being able to sell their home-cooked meals through their eatery “ BABA KA DHABA” for a long time now due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
So guys I went to #MalviyaNagar and found these very old couple working hard to earn a living, when I went there and saw them struggling, I couldn’t stop but cried. They said they start early at 6.30 am and by 1.30 am they could only earn Rs 60/- #VocalForLocal pic.twitter.com/avyXXVaMF2

Baba had a very busy day at his eatery today as people are coming in huge numbers.
His wife Badami Devi tells one of the people around “Lockdown ke samay jo thoda bohot banate the woh ghar wapis le jaate the kyunki kuch bikta nahi tha. Wahi khana khud kha kar kaam chala lete the. Ab lagatar customer aa rahe hain. Aap sabko hamara ashirwaad”
Who says Social media can’t do any good? This is just an example. A random man made a video and told people the story, people poured in which has literally brought smiles to the elderly couple.
After a video featuring the teary-eyed owners of #BabaKaDhaba in #MalviyaNagar went viral and was shared by the likes of @ReallySwara, & @TandonRaveena, the small eatery is seeing such large crowds that they sold out all their food in the morning itself#BabaKaDaba #SupportLocal pic.twitter.com/XsP68y0dZZ

Many people say “ keep your phones & cameras away while helping someone”. But now we know why we need the cameras and how we can use our social media in a great way.
What a powerful impact…
What a wonderful example has been set by these amazing people….

In our daily lives, we get to see so many such people on the road selling pens to people, earing only about Rs. 30/- a day. Can see children setting small roadside stalls with just a few fruits, vegetables. Some can be seen sitting silently in a corner of a shop with just a few garlands on hand hoping that people will buy some from him and he will at least get something to eat so that he won’t have to sleep empty stomach like most of the days of his life.
Most of the time we see people passing by them, don’t even look at them. They need our support too to survive this life.
There are Earthen Lamp makers who have been struggling for their whole lives. Many people during Diwali takes the initiative to create awareness about those hopelessly helpless people by asking people to support local products, buy these handmade earthen lamps instead of Chinese products. Most of the time, people ignore it.
It’s overwhelming to see the response to #BABAKADHABA today.
Diwali is coming, buy diyas and rangolis from local vendors.
It’s a festival for us but it’s an year round earning for them as well.
Bring smiles on their face this Diwali.

Not every helpless people is lucky like BABA. We should always support helpless people,Not only when some videos go viral or some celebrities share and ask you to help. Humanity should be constant.
Keep helping those who need your little support, keep spreading Smiles.
