In order to encourage people to visit Baba Ka Dhaba in New Delhi’s Malviya Nagar, Tinder India recommended the eatery to couples for their “next date”. Social media agreed that it is a great suggestion indeed but several users had a question for Tinder. Quite valid, actually.
What is Baba Ka Dhaba?
Situated in Malviya Nagar, Baba Ka Dhaba is a small eatery operated by an elderly couple – Kanta Prasad and his wife Badami Devi – since the past 30 years. Baba Ka Dhaba went viral on social media on Thursday after a video of Kanta Prasad narrating his struggle to run the eatery was widely circulated on Twitter.
What did Tinder India post on Twitter?
On Thursday, Tinder India said in their post, “We recommend #BabaKaDhabha for your next date.” Good idea!
