Pani Puri Plate
The wife of a poor pani puri vendor has become a software engineer in Infosys, thanks to her husband’s support (and pani-puri). Sheik Salar, a pani puri vendor, used every rupee he earned to help his wife Fatima, 21, achieve her academic ambitions. And it was not in vain. Fatima completed her Engineering course with flying colors and was given a plum posting by the software giant in a campus selection. While Fatima went to college, Salar roamed around the city with a pushcart selling pani puri, earning Rs 150 per day. He started saving money to help Fatima’s study. By living frugally, Salar somehow got together Rs 60,000 to pay Fatima’s. The pani puri vendor was adamant that his wife’s future should not get spoilt because she married him. Salar is proud, for he has proved that behind every successful woman there is a man.
