The best way to enjoy the refreshing monsoon rains is to sit by our window and dig into some delicious foods, delivered from a restaurant. Who wants to miss the fleeting rain while standing and cooking in the kitchen, right? And this makes us appreciate the guy ringing our doorbell to get us our meal even more. Probably that’s why there is a barrage of stories online about food delivery executives who work against all odds to deliver our food timely and safely. Do you remember a Zomato food rider who bought a motorbike courtesy of funding from internet users? Such heart-warming tales are everywhere. And the latest one to crop on our feeds is melting hearts too. A heartbreaking video of a Swiggy delivery boy has the internet’s sympathy. Wondering why? Take a look.
A video shared on the Instagram page ‘frinds.dinesh’ shows a Swiggy delivery man drenched in rain, waiting on his motorbike at a traffic signal. You’ll notice that the man is not wearing a raincoat or any kind of cover to protect himself from the heavy showers. The video was reshared by shared by IPS officer Dinesh Kabra who tagged Swiggy and wrote, “Unfortunately, in @Swiggy only 5 stars can be given. Crores of stars are also less for such a conscientious and hardworking employee.”
