Saurabh Jain believes in one simple thing in life, “live and let live.” This mantra has now encouraged him to take up the responsibility of feeding hundreds of underprivileged people in Delhi on a daily basis amid the ongoing coronavirus lockdown.
Since the announcement of the 21-day lockdown, there is a large number of people who have been left without food or shelter. Jain is determined to provide help to as many as he can.
Jain, who runs a garment factory in East Azad Nagar, has hired people to prepare food for over five hundred people daily. Be it Pulao, Chole-puri, or Aloo-puri, each day he gets different items prepared to offer to those in need.
Some people visit his factory to collect the food packets and Jain ensures that they maintain proper norms of social distancing. He even hired a few delivery men to ensure that the food packets reach those who are unable to come to his factory.
It’s not just the humans that Jain is concerned about. Since before the lockdown, he used to feed stray dogs and birds. In fact, this 29-year-old man is feeding the animals for almost 10 years now.
Here’s a video which gives you a glimpse of Jain’s efforts:
“What will there be if everyone dies?” Jain told Hindustan Times and added that he will continue his food service as long as possible.
