The heartwarming story of Sourav Bharadwaj, a student working as a food delivery agent to make ends meet, has become an inspiration on the internet with his unwavering determination.


A video shared by Hatinder Singh on X showcased  Sourav Bhardwaj tirelessly pedaling through a 40-kilometer route daily from 4 pm to 11 pm while juggling college commitments.

The caption accompanying the video celebrated Mr. Bhardwaj’s tenacity: “Let’s Call The Day With Story Of This Brother From Patiala, Doing ITI & Working As A Food Delivery Boy With @Swiggy He Everyday Pedals 40Kms To Deliver Orders, Father Works As Photographer But Doesn’t Earns Much, So To Help Family He Does This Work. Kudos To His Hard work.”

In the heartfelt video, Mr. Bhardwaj shared his dreams of becoming an IAS officer and his dedication to preparing for government exams alongside his delivery job. He aims to ease the financial burden on his family, as his father works as a photographer and his mother teaches at a private school. His earnings from Swiggy contribute significantly to their household expenses.

Despite being Hindu, Bhardwaj says he wears a turban, inspired by the values of the Sikh faith.
