A heartwarming story of an educated student working as a delivery boy with a popular food delivery app surfaced online and melted the hearts of many netizens. Identified as Sahil Singh, an engineering graduate, caught the attention of social media after a customer who ordered food on the app hit a conversation with the delivery boy and shared insights from the talk on her LinkedIn profile.
Singh 'walked' kms to deliver order
The LinkedIn user and Swiggy customer Priyanshi Chandel got delivered her ice cream order over a notable delay. This made her question the delivery partner about the case. On asking Singh about the reason behind the delay, it was brought to notice that he didn't have a bike to ride and walked about three kilometres to deliver the order at her doorstep.
"Madam, I did not have a scooty or any transport to travel, I walked 3 kms with your order. I am absolutely out of money," Singh told Chandel as per the LinkedIn post.
Later, Singh pointed out that he was educated and had worked with companies such as Ninjacart and BYJU'S, with a salary of Rs 25,000. "I am a fully educated ECE grad, I used to work at Ninjacart, BYJU'S before I went home to Jammu during covid," the post further read quoting the words of Chandel.
