Food Stall For A Cause

Bhavna was a maid at Ankush's place and in order to help her financially, Ankush sets up a food stall outside Kandivali station where the revenue is given to her.


Food stalls outside railway stations are the go-to place for every commuter in Mumbai. Some set up these poha-upma  food stalls as their main revenue whereas some just set it up for an extra income. However, this duo in Kandivali has set up a food stall for their house-help. 

Talking about the same, the house-help Bhavna said, 

I have been working at their place for many years and they have always been grateful for everything I have done for them. They always loved the food that I cooked for them and suggested me to start a stall for an extra income. However, at this age, it was physically impossible for me to do so much of work and that's when they stepped in and said that you just cook the food and we will set up the stall and do the sales.

Ankush, who sets up this stall early in the morning outside Kandivali station and then goes for his regular work said, 

At the age of 55 when others plan for retirement, Bhavna was still working hard to meet her day-to-day needs. She always looked worried and that's when I got to know that her husband is bed ridden due to paralysis. I wanted to step in and help her as much as I could. She comes to our house at 3 am, prepares the food and then we sell it early in the morning. We handover the revenue to her and are further trying to increase our sales.
