 The News Cover: You all know that last year, Delhi's Baba ka Dhaba, a small eatery owned by 80-year-old Kanta Prasad and his wife, ran into financial troubles due to the COVID lockdown. He was in tears because of his woes. A YouTuber released a video about this and people flocked to his Dhaba, People ate at his dhaba and donated money to support him. With the lakhs of rupees received in donations, in December last year, Kanta Prasad had started a new restaurant just a few minutes away from his old Dhaba in Malviya Nagar. The name of Kanta Prasad's new restaurant was also 'Baba Ka Dhaba'. However, after opening in December 2020, the restaurant shut down on 15th Feb 2021. This is because an expense of Rs 1 lakh was involved. 

Rs 36,000 per month to be paid workers, Rs 35,000 for rent, including electricity bill, water bill, etc. As compared to the expenses, the returns were less. This is why he shut down the restaurant. Reports say the restaurant, which initially saw impressive crowds, gradually lost customers and was vexed by mismanagement. This is why Kanta Prasad shut the restaurant. Mr. Prasad, however, says that he will now run his Dhaba till the day he dies. He has also planned his retirement. He said that because of people’s generous donations he and his wife were able to save up Rs 20 lakh.
