Woman with Down Syndrome runs restaurant in Mumbai
August 3, 2017
At Bhoomi Mall in Belapur in Navi Mumbai is a little restaurant called Aditi's Corner that serves snacks, drinks, chocolates and cupcakes.
Taking orders, cleaning tables and running the place is 22-year-old Aditi Verma, who has Down Syndrome. The restaurant was gifted to her by her parents who wanted to keep her happy, busy, and independent as she pursues what she loves best, which is cooking.
Thanks to Aditi's commitment and hard work, the restaurant has many visitors and started making profits within just three months of opening. Aditi's story is an inspiration for people with special needs. Her family says that no one should take them as a problem, but as special people who can do whatever any one else can do.
