On a good day, street food vendors are the primary feeders of a large chunk of Delhi's population. From the neighborhood chaiwala, the omelette wala at the corner of the street, the gol gappe wala or the chaat ka thela corner to the more specialised kebab and tikka vendors in different pockets of Delhi - each of them ensure that there's always some grub for the go in bustling Delhi. The ongoing lockdown though has now forced street food vendors to shut their shops. With no work and no patrons, those who fed Delhi may perhaps have no resources to feed themselves and their families by the time the lockdown is over.
