A road-side stall run by a septuagenarian woman on the streets of Punjab has caught the attention of several people, including singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh.
In a video, which has now gone viral on several social media platforms, the woman can be seen sitting in her tiny stall, next to a make-shift stove and making dal, sabzi and parathas at Jalandhar’s Phagwara Gate market.
“People spend an extravagant amount to eat in big hotels, but here at my stall, the food is affordable and reasonable,” she can be heard saying in the viral clip. She then goes on to give details of her personal life, sharing how she started working after her husband’s death and took to cooking to earn a living.
In his tweet, the 36-year-old singer gave details of the stall’s location and requested people to visit her if they went to the market.

Look at the calm and patience on her face. The kind of grit she is carrying is definitely not available with everyone. Probably her good time has come through Mr. Dosanjh. Hope Jalandhar people will support her with open heart.
