In a show of utmost grit and commitment, Pune-based Dr. Mukund Penurkar returned to duty just a day after losing his father to the coronavirus. His mother and brother are also undergoing treatment for COVID-19. #Pune #CoronavirusIndia #IndiaFightsCorona… Image
Dr. Penurkar, an internal medicine specialist at the city's Sanjeevan Hospital, says it was the only way to pay tribute to his father. He lost his father Ramdasrao Penurkar on April 26, but came to the hospital the next morning to attend to other COVID-19 patients. #coronavirus Image
He even had to perform the last rites all alone, as his mother and brother were undergoing treatment in the ICU. "It's very difficult for me to think that I could not save my father despite being a doctor," Dr. Penurkar said. #IndiaFightsCOVID19 #OxygenCylinders #CoronavirusIndia Image

So here is the story about the first day of 18-44 Yr Vaccination at #Pune
Pune District announced 20000 doses recieved
Only handful centers opened up for 18+
Some 3 or 4 of 100 each.
Booked slot at Maan PHC for 3-4pm today. Went to check vacc are they giving Cv or Cs.
100 slots only via #CowinApp as per rules. At 11.30 am see a crowd there filling forms.
Vaccn starts at 2pm - 6pm
Person in charge at center tells me 100 doses will be split amongst booked slots and walk ins. As village people do not know how to use CoWin.
Asked to come at 2 pm and stand in que. I said my slot is at 3. The inharge says 50 doses to registered ppl and 50 to walk ins.
Can someone explain how are walk ins being allowed of doses allocated 4 18+? That means out of 100 who have booked via CoWin, only 50 will get dose. 3/n

We delivered 50 Khichdi Dabbas today. It was a Palak khichdi. Used the Matta rice which is easier to digest and was made in ghee so that it is mild on the stomach. Our initial plan was to give food to policemen on duty & ambulance drivers. #Update (1)
On our way to Sasoon Hospital we have to policemen and to rag pickers. As we reached Sasoon compound we realized the family members of the patient been treated at Sasoon also needs food desperately. #Update (2)
The family members of the patients are usually found in & around this place. From tomorrow we are also providing food to these families in Sasoon & other govt hospitals in Pune. #Update (3)

Post the virality of this tweet I think I owe you all an update on developments. I firstly apologies for saying that our defunct hospital is in Pune. It’s actually 3.3kms away from the border of #Punecity and falls under the @pcmcindiagovin Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation.
1/n This is where my first problems began as I did get calls from #Pune authorities who on hearing the location washed their hands away by saying it’s not part of their #jurisdiction!Does death also have any jurisdiction?
Never got any calls from the good people at PCMC.
2/n I did get connected to a bunch of trusts/organizations/individuals who offered help in running this if we are able to get it funded/started by ourselves. I do thank all of them for reaching out with their manpower and expertise. 
A lot of you including me tagged a host

Sad Update: After fighting COVID and other complications, my dad passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon. A man who loved people had to die with strangers, away from his loved ones. The last we talked to him was when he was taken to COVID ward.
#COVID19 #pune

He had never stayed in the hospital and never been alone his whole life. And we were worried how he will feel. But his condition was such that he didn't really understand it (and I hope he never did). The last time we "saw" him alive was when he was sleeping in the ICU ...

and a kind soul who was there to take test samples called us on video. He was sleeping and did not respond when we called his name. This is the worst part of this pandemic -- it denies you closure. I got a glimpse of him as he was loaded into the hearse.

The Battle of Kirkee / Ganeshkhind which settled the fight for #Pune between Bajirao II and the East India Company.
Probable route taken by Mountstuart Elphinstone to escape the Maratha attack on the British Residency at the Sangam and join the soldiers at Kirkee.
With most of the battlefield now a concrete (and in some parts actual) jungle , it's a bit difficult to imagine.

The Marathas under Bapu Gokhale proceeded via the Lakdipul and other routes , through Bhamburda , onto the present Ganeshkhindroad to Ganeshkhind

There were requests to share info about Sadguru Jangli Maharaj. Sharing information from public domain in this thread. Sadguru Jangli Maharaj was born in 1803. Some say that he was born near Hubballi, as per others he was from Baroda related to Rani Laxmibai's family.
He left home early and gained spiritual learning from different gurus. It  is also said that he participated in the war of independence 1857. Later he was seen at Rethare Harnaksha near Satara, resided there performing sadhana. Thereafter he came to Pune at Bhamburda village.
There he stayed near the Rokdoba Temple. He meditated at the hillock near Pateleshwar. The area was desolate with wild vegetation. He used to seek bhiksha in the village, soon people recognised his authority and began offering food. Jangli Maharaj frequently visited Dehu-Alandi.

Thread on upcoming #Pune Municipal Corporation election to be held on 2022.

I will be tweeting about following points in this thread:
📌 Current situation
📌 Party wise tally of each assembly/area
📌 Improvement points for BJP

📌 Current situation

Party wise tally is as follows:

BJP 97
NCP 39
ShivSena 10
INC 09
MNS 02
Independents/Others 05

Total seats: 162
Magic Figure: 82

BJP is super strong in Shivaji Nagar, Kasba, Kothrud, Parvati.

BJP looks okay in Cantonment.

NCP gains its majority seats from Khadakwasla, Hadapsar & Vadgaonsheri.

Someone I know will soon become a F1 parent! (F1=student visa in the US).

So I offered to share a few pointers I had put together year ago for students moving to the US for higher studies.

Figured why not share it here.

#F1visa #America #Masters #students #India #Pune
Before you leave:
1.Scan every single certificate (mark sheet degree cert, birth, aadhar, Pan etc) and save in a secure place. Easiest is to open an email address only for documents. Make 4 sets of copies, 2 with your parents 2 with you.
2.Spend AS MUCH time with your parents as possible. It still will feel inadequate once you are there.
3.Buy multiple sweaters, jackets, scarves, wollen caps, gloves, wollen socks etc.
