Chandigarh, July 31

Touched by an emotional video of an elderly woman running a juice stall in Amritsar, people have come forward on social media to do their bit for her. 

The 30-second clip, which has gone viral, shows the woman running a juice stall to earn a living for herself. She is seen making fresh mausambi (sweet lime) juice and is serving people with a smile.

It shows the woman working hard in her age to feed herself. Appearing to be in her 80s, the woman's stall is located at Rani Da Bagh near Uppal Neuro Hospital.

The internet users are heartbroken seeing her work so hard at this age. They have pleaded the local government and agencies to intervene and come to her aid. Several persons inquired about her bank account number so that they could come forward and help her.

The video was also shared on Instagram by food blogger Gaurav Wasan who goes by the handle @youtubeswadofficial.

It has received over 9 million views and 915k likes since it was shared.

As per reports, the stall is located in Rani Da Bagh, opposite SBI branch in Amritsar. Although she is serving people with a smile, internet users were quite concerned about her working at such an old age to sustain herself.

In 2020, we had seen a similar story of an octogenarian couple from Delhi who was unable to earn a living for themselves from their eatery. Baba Ka Dhaba was the name of the eatery in Malviya Nagar, which had created a stir online. Interestingly, the video of the Amritsar lady's juice stall was shared by the same food blogger who had earlier shared the Baba Ka Dhaba video story.
