Remember the differently-abled Zomato employee Ramu, who left inspired many after a video of him using a hand-powered tricycle to deliver food went viral? The food delivering company has now gifted him an electric vehicle to help him with his work.
The founder and CEO of the company Deepinder Goyal shared a video of the employee along with pictures and videos of him using the vehicle. “Our delivery partner Ramu Sahu has gracefully accepted the electric vehicle that we were keen on him having,” Goyal tweeted.

As the video went viral, many are requesting the company and other automobile manufacturers to provide him with an electric scooter that might help him to serve better. Others also suggested crowd-funding a vehicle for the inspiring man.
Kindly help him more by providing him with battery operated special tricycle for easy commutation .. for his positive attitude to lead the life. https://t.co/4evstaEz3d
