Robin Mukesh took a picture of the Zomato employee Mohd Aqeel Ahmed and his bicycle with which he completed a route of 9 kilometres in 20 minutes.
Mukesh then proceeded to post the picture online on a Facebook group, The Great Hyderabad Food and Travel Club, lauding Aqeel for his “lightning speed” and that too on a bicycle.
He shared some more details about 21-year old Aqeel who is in his third year of engineering studies and was working for Zomato for a year.
He then encouraged others who had their orders fulfilled by Aqeel to leave him a generous tip for his dedication.
The post drew an impressive amount of attention, to the point that some people started considering setting up a fundraiser to buy a bike for Aqeel.
As more and more pitched in, funds to the tune of Rs 73,370 were donated by the end of the day.
Rs 60,000 was donated in a span of just 10 hours.
Mukesh reported that with the money, a TVS XL 100 bike has been booked, which cost around Rs 65,000.
Aqeel received the bike on June 18, along with safety accessories such as helmet and a raincoat.
The remaining amount will go towards his education fees.
Aqeel expressed his gratitude and humbly said that he was accustomed to doing his job with a bicycle given his financial constraints.
Since he had only a bicycle, he had requested his company to assign him an area of a 4-5 km radius.
But he still received orders that went to areas much beyond, some as far as 8-10 km away.
It took him 10-12 hours every day to complete his job.
After receiving the bike, he admitted to shedding tears of joy and was overwhelmed by the generosity of the gesture.
