80-year old ‘Baba’ whose Dhaba suddenly became hot property after food blogger Gaurav Vasan posted a video on him, has gotten greedy after his revived fortunes. Baba now accuses Vasan of defrauding him of the flow of funds that came from all across India to help the needy Baba.
Baba claims Vasan has siphoned off many lakhs that were sent to him by people all across India answering to his distress.Instead of being grateful to Vasan for spreading the word , Baba has now turned around to accuse his benefactor and savior of embezzlement.
Vasan doesn’t know what hit him.
“I don’t know who has been filling up Baba’s ears. I asked people to stop sending money for Baba because enough funds have been accumulated. I helped him when he seemed to be in distress. I like to promote street food. In fact after helping Baba, I also made a video on a female dhaba owner in Agra. Her fortunes too have revived. I hope she doesn’t turn around to accuse me of cheating her.This is too upsetting. Is this what I get for helping someone in distress?” asks Gaurav.
This is clearly a case of avarice taking over all better judgment. An old man and his wife who were on the verge of starvation suddenly find their fortunes turning. They decide to get greedy, caring little for the hand that held them from falling.
