A football coach named Prasad Bhosale is now forced to sell vegetables to make ends meet and support his family after he was fired by a school from his physical education job amid the Covid-19 pandemic, ANI has reported.
As per the report, Bhosale was working as a football coach at a school for the past five years and used to earn Rs 25,000 per month which he used to support his family of four including his parents.
Unfortunately his school relieved him of his duties due to lockdown and he was left with the prospect of having no income. Then one of his friends suggested that he start selling vegetables till the situation returns to normalcy.
Bhosale - who has done his masters in physical education thus began selling vegetables on the street but soon ran into trouble with the authorities. He ultimately rented a shop and started his services. He now also offers home delivery.
He now earns around Rs 500 to Rs 600 daily and says that the lockdown has taught him the benefit of having one's own business.
