Simple ideas translate into powerful actions. Parkash Chibber is proof of this.

Parkash Chibber is the founder and owner of ‘Indian Fusion: The Curry House’ an Indian restaurant in Edmonton, Canada. The restaurant is making waves in Canada, not only for its scrumptious food, but for its generosity.

It reads:

“Dear friends,
If you are hungry and have no money to pay, just ring the bell below or come in for a free meal box/coffee anytime.”

“I thought, how many people can I go ask ‘Are you hungry? Are you hungry?’ It’s not possible. So I thought, why not put up a sign?,” Chibber told Canada’s CTV.

What’s more, people in need can choose from three options: a vegetarian meal, a non-vegetarian meal or even just milk and coffee!

“Please bring any allergy-dietary concerns to the attention of the server,” the thoughtful notice adds.

In a day and age when businesses are viewed as profit-obsessed, the actions of Indian Fusion come as a breath of fresh air.

But Parkash disagrees.

“I think I can do much more,” Parkash says, “I am already cooking food for people, so why not 10 more? I am not doing anything extra, this is my way of life.”
