A video of an elderly Indian roadside food vendor breaking down on camera due to a decline in earnings has led to a massive outpouring of sympathy among Indian social media users. The aged man owns a roadside eatery called "Baba Ka Dhaba", in the Delhi neighbourhood of Malviya Nagar. "Please don't cry... God's with you", the recorder of the viral video is heard consoling the owner in Hindi.
After the video was posted on Twitter by a social media user on Wednesday, Indian cricketer Ravi Ashwin and Bollywood actress Sonam Ahuja were among other prominent personalities who offered to assist the elderly man.
