There’s something fascinating about hard working people (those from economically challenging conditions) with good looks. Well, at at-least one can conclude that from the kind of attention a Pakistani ‘Chaiwalla’ and a Nepali ‘Tarkariwali’ have been getting on social media, thanks to their great looks.
Few weeks back, Islamabad based ‘chaiwalla’ (tea-seller) Arshad Khan’s picture went viral on social media.
Now, its the turn of a ‘Tarkariwali’ (vegetable seller) from Nepal; the woman, whose identity is unknown yet, is creating a flutter on twitter. The woman has become sort of a celebrity on the internet, with lots of people going crazy about her beauty.

So even though the social media is turning these common people into celebrities (although their fame seems to be short-lived), does it really materialize into good fortune for them?
Tea seller Arshad Khan from Pakistan, who shot to fame with the Instagram post of him serving tea (his blue-green eyes staring intensely into the camera lens) got a modelling assignment because of his new-found fame.
Pakistan based online retailer Fitin.pk signed Arshad Khan up as a model.

Khan, who couldn’t afford a phone, was not aware of his new fame, but realized it when young people began turning up at his tea shop in Islamabad, asking to take selfies with him.
“I was aware that I am handsome, but you can’t do anything when you are poor,” Arshad Khan.
We hope something exciting happens to the Nepali girl as well.
