A video of Ramu Sahu, Zomato’s delivery man, went viral a few days back, in which he was delivering the food using a hand-powered tricycle. This had left many inspired.

Deepinder Goyal, the food aggregating application’s founder, has shared the news and videos of Ramu Sahu in a series of tweets. He also said that the person has “gracefully accepted” the vehicle that Zomato was keen on giving.

Raveena Tandon also retweeted the video and lauded Zomato for the gesture. She added that more companies should come forward to empower others. Meanwhile, Zomato said that it takes immense pride in its delivery partners as they are the ones who connect food with the consumers, overcoming all the obstacles.
