Healthcare workers around the world have been on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus. Their service is next to godliness and people have now started showing the respect and gratitude the medical staff deserves.

Healthcare workers, being selfless have bid their families goodbye for a while only to help the people who need them. Even though most of the doctors and medical workers know about the risk of this job, they are needlessly doing their bit for the sake of humanity.

April 5, 2020 is just another day to remember when the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked people to light a candle or lamp to show solidarity with people who are affected by COVID-19.

From a 16-day-old child to a 100-year-old woman, the healthcare workers have ensured that they try their best to save lives.

Dharavi, being Asia’s largest slums has been at a high risk of coronavirus spread due to the population. Healthcare workers regularly visit the slum to check on the people.

Saying goodbye to your loved ones is a task which requires guts. Most healthcare workers haven’t met their families ever since the pandemic started.

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.
