Sharma saw him deliver the food on a bicycle as the mercury rose to 42 degrees Celsius. Noticing Meena’s plight, he decided to find a way to help him.

He posted a series of tweets. The first started with: “Today my order was delivered to me on time and to my surprise the delivery person was on a bicycle this time. Today the temperature in my city is around 42°C in this scorching heat of Rajasthan he delivered my order on time”.

However, when the Covid-19 pandemic hit, he lost his job and had to deliver food to support himself and his family.

He is very happy now”. This incident showed again that if people can come together, they can achieve great things.
