The bad side of social media can be seen with many trolls but there is also a good side of it that has more often than not shown how there is light at the end of the tunnel for many people. Over the years, there are many examples of well-wishers and good Samaritans showcasing the plight of people struggling to make ends meet. One of the latest heartwarming stories is that of 10-year-old Delhi boy Jaspreet, who has been selling rolls on the street in Tilak Nagar in the capital.

Jaspreet's story came to light after it was posted on social media by food blogger Sarabjeet Singh, who goes by @mrsinghfoodhunter, and since then help has poured in from Indian businessman Anand Mahindra, actor Sonu Sood and even Arjun Kapoor. Most recently, Hemkunt Foundation, a not-for-profit organization has also come forward to help him.

The foundation has announced that they will be helping the 10-year-old by providing him with three months's worth of groceries to sustain his business with his sister, and a lifetime supply of raw materials. "Additionally, in the spirit of seva, we've encouraged Jaspreet to pay it forward by providing rolls to those less fortunate," the Instagram page of the foundation said.

Earlier, Indian businessman and billionaire Anand Mahindra, who is the chairman of the Mumbai-based conglomerate Mahindra Group, had also offered help. In a tweet, he stated, "Courage, their name is Jaspreet. But his education shouldn't suffer. I believe, he's in Tilak Nagar, Delhi. If anyone has access to his contact number, please do share it.
