Remember ‘Idli Amma’ Who Sold Idlis For ₹1? She’s To Get A New House & Work Space!

The story of Tamil Nadu’s ‘Idli Amma’ is one of selflessness. The grandma, who is in her 80s, sells a plate of idlis with complimentary chutney for just Rs 1. Even during the lockdown, when the cost of essential items was soaring and businesses ran dry, Idli Amma continued to sell her idlis for Re 1 despite suffering losses. Why? Because how else can the poor afford food?

However, K Kamalathal’s living conditions in Coimbatore weren’t favourable to run a business. Her house was dilapidated. Her kitchen didn’t have much space and didn’t allow her to grow her business as she would like.

Hence, keeping in mind that her priority was to have a house or workspace from where she could cook and sell idlis, Mahindra Group came forward to help Amma register a piece of land in her name wherein they will soon begin the construction of her new home-cum-working space, reports NDTV!

The registration of land has already taken place at the Thondamuthur registry office and construction will soon begin as per Amma’s requirement.

People online expressed their happiness for the new chapter that is to begin in Amma’s life. Here’s what some of them said:

Better days are on their way to Idli Amma’s life!
