Meet The Mumbai Couple, Who Is Running A Food Stall To Support Cook With Paralysed Husband

| Published on November 20, 2019

A couple from Mumbai is winning hearts online for going out of the way to help their house help after her husband recently fell ill and ended up being paralyzed.

The couple Ashwini Shenoy and her husband Ankush Nilesh Shah who both work for private firms have opened a stall outside Kandivali West railway station that offers a wide range of breakfast options like upma, poha, idli, parathas, etc. to support their cook who was working for them since August this year. When asked about their initiative the couple proudly called it “their most inspiring act of kindness”.

“As we know our cook, she has got her own self-esteem and she wouldn’t have accepted any financial help directly from us. Neither did we want to do that, she is very hardworking and has got an amazing taste to whatever she cooks. We thought why not put up this idea to her and see her response. As soon as we proposed this to her she readily accepted the offer,” Shenoy told sharing how this initiative was started by the duo in their late 20s.

The couple run the breakfast stall from 4 am to 9:30 am before going to work to help their 55-year-old cook who doesn’t have any proper financial aid at this age.

Ashwini Shenoy in an email interview said that she didn’t anticipate such overwhelming response and positive feedback from everyone in such a short time. She further added, “when used for a good cause can help gain tremendous success.

After Bhatia’s post went viral, many also reached out to them to offer help.

“A lot of people have reached out to us with an intention to help by giving us food orders which can help maximize her income. Going ahead we would love to create a team of such ladies and set up maybe a small griha udyog and cater to larger and diverse audiences,” Ashwini said.

Ashwini also assured that the cook will be handed whatever has been promised to her, “We are still in the infancy stage, we have to work upon a lot of things before we can come down to an exact figure which we shall be giving her. However, we have committed to her that she would get the money she deserves for the efforts and hard work she is putting in and she has trusted us on that.”

This is how Facebook users reacted to the story.
