Good Sports: INSPIRING ACT OF KINDNESS

Good Sports: INSPIRING ACT OF KINDNESS

Shopping for food outside Kandivali Station West, Mumbai resident Deepali Bhatia came across a food stall operated by Ashwini Shenoy Shah and her husband. The Gujarati couple appeared to come from a well-to-do family, so Bhatia asked them why they were running a food stall. They told her that they sell food to help their 55-year-old maid, whose husband is paralyzed.

Both MBA graduates, they spend their mornings (from 4 to 9:30 a.m.) selling upma, parathas, idlis and other items their maid has cooked, then head off to their regular jobs.

Bhatia, who shared the story in a Facebook post that went viral, called it β€œone of my most inspiring acts of kindness.”
