Established back in 1955, Wahid Biryani is one of the legendary eateries of Lucknow and they're famous for their meaty Awadhi biryani since inception. But for the first ever during their span of 65 years in the city, they've started dishing out vegetarian delicacies to feed the migrants on the roads.
What's the Highlight?
After the lockdown capped the city, the chefs of the restaurant had all left for their hometowns. So the owner of Wahid Biryani, Abid Ali Quraishi, stepped into the head chef's shoes with his family members & a few of his staff by his side to feed the downtrodden.
Since last week, the team of Wahid Biryani has been feeding around 2000 migrant labourers on a daily basis and their signature meat laden biryani has now reformed into Navratna biryani with veggies and cottage cheese. The group has been serving milk to the children along with juice, water, fruits, amidst other items for everyone, to crub their hunger. They've set up their stalls in 4 main locations- Chinhat, Polytechnic Crossing, Sitapur Road and Agra Expressway.
The entire team of Wahid Biryani has been observing roza yet are relentlessly working for 12 hours at a stretch with only a vision in mind- to serve humanity, which they hail as the 'ultimate religion'.
A message to all our readers
Even a small step on your end can help the underprivileged to come a long way! So do keep donating and feeding the needy around within your own capacities because while we're living inside the comforts of our own homes, they're merely surviving on the scorching streets. But while at it, do remember to follow the rules of the lockdown and to undertake necessary precautions so that you can keep on serving the society further without any health hassles.
