A video of a couple who used to run a printing business but now sells food on the streets has gone viral on Instagram.

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected the global economy, and many businesses struggled to survive or drastically reduced their operations. Many business owners were even forced to look for a job. And this Faridabad couple was no different. The couple used to run a printing business, but the pandemic drastically hit the business and forced them to shut the operations. When nothing worked out, they decided to run a food stall to earn a living. Now, a video documenting their story is gaining traction on social media and receiving numerous responses from people.

“Couple selling rajma chawal on road,” read the caption of the video shared by Instagram user Jatin Singh. In the now-viral video, the couple can be seen selling Rajma chawal and Kadhi chawal for Rs. 40 each at a stall near gate number 5 of Faridabad’s Greenfield Colony. When asked about how they started the stall, the man says, “I used to run a printing business, but it went down during the lockdown. I then started working, but the salary wasn’t enough to meet the daily needs of the family. So, we decided to start something of our own because we knew how to cook. Both me and my wife run this stall.” Alongside, the video showcases the man plating kadhi chawal and rajma chawal.
