Yadav Ji

Yadav ji, is from Benaras. He came to Mumbai when we was 18 to become a taxi driver following some friends who were already here. When he arrived, he was introduced to the street food selling scene in Mumbai by a friend who sold peanuts on the railway platform. Embarrassed by that, he wanted to drop everything and go back. But he resolved that he wouldn’t return home unless he made something of himself. This is a humble story of a man in search of a living, his journey in finding joy in hardship and making friends with struggle all in a day’s work.
