Mumbai: COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown has left thousands of people jobless and helpless. Also, many people have resorted to taking up odd jobs to support their families financially during this tough time.
In one such scenario, a 14-year-old boy started selling tea after his mother lost her job during the pandemic and lockdown. The teenager named, Subhan, regularly sells tea in the areas of Nagpada, Bhendi Bazar, and other areas across Mumbai.
"My father died twelve years ago and my sisters study through online classes," Subhan stated. The teenager boy says that he will resume his studies once his school reopens. "My mother is a school bus attendant. However, after the schools closed down due to pandemic, we're facing a huge financial crunch. I make tea at a shop in Bhendi Bazaar and sell it in the areas of Nagpada, Bhendi Bazaar and other areas. I don't own a shop. I earn between Rs 300-400 every day, from that I give it to my mother and save a little," the boy said.
