It’s difficult to find people who selflessly help fellow humans in today’s world. Most of us spend almost every single penny of our income on ourselves and our families. But a tea seller from Kanpur spends around 80% of his monthly income on underprivileged kids.
Mohammad Mahboob Malik, who runs a tea stall in the city caught VVS Laxman’s eye recently. The former cricketer shared a picture of the tea seller alongside some impressive details about him.
“Mohammad Mahboob Malik, a tea seller from Kanpur takes care of education for 40 children. He has a small tea shop and spends 80% of his income on the education of these children. What an inspiration!” he wrote.

Malik runs a school for underprivileged children in the Sharda Nagar area of Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh, reports NDTV. He provides free education to the kids and sponsors their uniforms, books, and stationery as well.
Speaking to Dainik Bhaskar, Malik also shared that he spent his childhood in extreme poverty and could only study till high school, so he decided to help others get education free of cost.
The post has garnered several positive reactions on Twitter with people heaping praise on Malik, calling him a real hero.
Really an inspiration. We all should try to do at least one percent of what he is doing. You have shared a great inspiration.
