Mumbai Man Provides Home-Cooked Meals For 200 COVID Patients

Published

on

Good nutrition is essential for a healthy body, especially in times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Experts and nutritionists have stressed the importance of eating healthy, home-cooked meals during these testing times. A well-balanced meal prepared at home may help keep diseases and infections at bay. But how to go about cooking at home when one is infected with the virus? Several individuals and groups are coming forward to provide homemade food. Rajiv Singal, a Mumbai-based businessman, is providing two meals a day to 200 home-isolated patients and their families.

Rajiv Singal came up with the idea when he himself tested positive last year. He then subscribed to a food delivery service called Asha’s Kitchen, which is the same service he has collaborated with now. He told ANI about how he came up with the inspiration for his noble initiative.”My whole family was hospitalised due to COVID last year. After being discharged we were home-quarantined. Our neighbour helped us with food but we did not get that taste and hygiene. So we decided to do help people who face such issues,” Singal said. “While my family and I were quarantined, we started ordering food from Asha’s Kitchen. We were satisfied with its taste, hygiene, and service provided by them. This is why I choose it for helping others,” he added.

The team at Asha’s Kitchen starts preparing food as early as 4 am, and often works till late at night. The food is provided in airtight jars and properly packaged so as to avoid spillage. It can also be customised as per the patients’ preferences. The owner of Asha’s Kitchen, Asha Bhartiya, said that there is absolutely no difference in the meals provided to people who are healthy and those who are COVID patients.

Talking about how his initiative came into being, Mr Rajiv Singal said, “We circulated the message through the social media. The home quarantined COVID patients contact me with their details. The people registered with us will be proved a two-time meal 14 days. If they want to extend the service, they can give us prior notice.”

What an incredible way to help out the people in need in these testing times. What did you think of this heart-warming gesture? Tell us in the comments below.

Anupamaa Loses Top Position to Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin

Published

on

Anupamaa has finally lost its top position to Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin. The Broadcast Audience Research Channel has released the viewing pattern of the Indian audiences in between May 1 and 7. Here are the top five shows on Indian TV:

Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin

Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin, with Neil Bhatt, Ayesha Singh and Aishwarya Sharma in the lead roles, has taken top position on the Television Rating Point (TRP) chart. GHKPM had been chasing Anupamaa for weeks and has finally been able to beat it in the race to become the week’s top show.

Anupamaa

Anupamaa, which has Rupali Ganguly playing the titular role, is on the second spot for the first time in months. Earlier, the physical absence of the lead actors from the episodes on testing positive for Covid-19 also could not affect its viewership. However, in this week Anupamaa’s silence on her divorce might have caused it its top position.

Imlie

A few weeks ago, Imlie was trying to do what Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin has already done. Despite several efforts, Imlie could not beat Anupamaa in terms of viewership instead was left behind by Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin as well. All the three shows air on the same channel, Star Plus.

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chasmah is the only comedy show on the ratings chart. Many actors have been replaced in the show over the months, which has somewhat affected its strong viewership. TMKOC is no longer a permanent show on the chart and keeps appearing once in a while.

Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2

Without Kokila and Gopi, two important characters of Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, the show still manages to gain good viewership. Again, not a permanent on the chart but as and when story spices up it secures 4th or 5th position on the TRP chart.

Today on World Whisky Day, Raise a Toast and Celebrate Your Favourite Drink

Published

on

World Whisky Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. This year the day is observed across the globe on May 15. Celebrated by whisky lovers at large, the day was founded in 2012. To make the occasion special, various tasting events, social gatherings and programs are organised.

Whisky is undoubtedly one of the classiest beverages one can buy. Sitting with a glass of whisky in one hand while listening to Mozart or Beethoven playing on a loop (through in a dash of cigar) in the background would be a whisky aficionado’s dream.

World Whisky Day was set up in 2012 by author and consultant Blair Bowman, who, when he was at university, decided to buy the domain name and set up a website that explored Scotland’s national drink.

Bowman even took to Twitter to wish all the whiskey lovers on the special day. “Today is the 10th annual @WorldWhiskyDay celebration. An idea I had in my head when I was 21 years old. Thank you to everyone who has raised a dram on WWD over the last ten years.” He also shared a video on his Twitter account saying, “The last ten WWDs in ten seconds”.

According to Bowman, World Whisky Day is, “all about making whisky fun and enjoyable. It’s not about being exclusive or prescriptive.”
