We all have a lot of food-related stories. Some have fun stories to tell, while others have a more moving story to share. Recently we came across one of these video stories of a street vendor from Ahmedabad. But this is not just your usual food vendor. The one standing at the other end of the stall is a 14-year-old boy. The video shows the masked boy preparing a plate of dahi kachori. He puts the green and red chutneys inside the kachori. Then, he garnishes it with a dash of yogurt and serves. The video was shared by food blogger Doyash Pathrabe on Instagram.
The caption read: “Help him. He is only 14 years old and sells dahi kachori only for Rs 10. Location: opposite Maninagar station, Ahmedabad, Gujarat.” The caption added: “He helps his family and works hard at it.” The video received over 22,000 hearts. Some users have claimed to have seen this boy with his father at their food stall outside Maninagar station. One person wrote: âHe’s a warrior. It will go very far in the future. But Rs 10 is too low I think. How much profit will he get from it? Another commented on the quality of the food the waiter cooks: “Trust me the taste was awesome. I have never eaten this tasty (food) in just 10 rupees.”
“More power for him. Share that with everyone,” read one of the reactions.
This user wrote: âHi hain aese logo ko … itni kam umar mein [Salute to people like him… working at such a young age]. âPeople also asked for contact details to help the boy.

The page often shared videos of food vendors, who sell delicious snacks for a nominal fee. Here is another clip of a woman selling kaccha chivda by the side of a road. The 60-year-old shows how she prepares the snack in the video. The caption read: “60 year old lady selling kaccha chivda for only Rs 25. Location: next to Maharajbagh Zoo, Nagpur.”
These messages are a cry to all the small food suppliers across the country.
