How BV Srinivas & team are able to help. Members of the youth congress had been asked to buy oxygen cylinders last month.
"We had asked some of our volunteers to buy five cylinders, each, at the start of April when the cases started rising in Delhi."…
So far, volunteers have bought around 100 oxygen cylinders from manufacturers and are distributing them across the city to help out the patients.
We first help those patients who want to buy their own oxygen tanks get in touch with the suppliers. If they can't afford to buy a tank, we give them one of our own and after three-four days, get the cylinders refilled again,” the volunteer said.
Apart from medical help, the volunteers have also started a food kitchen in their offices and are sending food packets to hospitals. Every day, over 2,000-3,000 food packets are sent to the families of those admitted to hospitals
"There are several who don't know how to register and pay for vaccination. We are helping people with this, too. We have also started an awareness campaign for plasma donation"

A number of startups in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Delhi have seen many employees test positive for the virus, and in some cases, key leaders and founders have been down with the virus. @manicontrol2020 spoke to entrepreneurs on how they are coping…
.@leverageedu founder @Akshay001 spent the last few days helping out his team members to secure beds and oxygen in New Delhi, when his business - of sending students abroad for higher education, is peaking as vaccinations rise in the United States and Canada.
This virus impacts your mental health as much especially if you're new to a city. Your neighbours aren't helping, your flatmates may shun you during quarantine. So putting up a few people in a hotel was the natural option,” said @RevantB of Mosaic

"I think expanding vaccines, deregulating prices of vaccines will have a massive supply response."
"I am not sure we dropped the ball. Vaccine capacity was taking time to get up. The government was not holding vaccines to people above 45 because they wanted to but because they had to. You can take the view that we should not be exporting, but these are complex tradeoffs "

Poor performance by Cognizant at a time when its peers are posting blockbuster results
- Negative growth for the 1st time in his history
- Clocks record low margins
- Settles $140 mn with large client
- 6% quarterly spike in voluntary attrition 🧵
Posts $16.7 Bn for 2020 full year, a decline of 0.8% compared to 2019.
Cognizant Q4 revenue declined 2.3 YoY
This, even as it spent $1.1 Billion in acquisitions in 2020.
It has projected a revenue growth of 5.5%-8.5% for 2021. This includes 3% contribution from acquisitions
So without acquisitions, Cognizant would grow in 2021 by less than 5 percent, at a time when its rivals are talking about returning to double digit growth levels. A sad state for a company that used to be the barometer or growth for the Indian IT industry

Fascinating 2020 trends from Zomato 🧵
A person from Jalgaon, Maharashtra ordered 369 pizzas this year
A person from Bengaluru emerged overall topper, having placed 1,380 orders this year (4 orders a day)
I'm feeling a lot better about myself after seeing all this
Pizza and India
May - 4.5 lakh plus orders
July- 9 lakh
Sept - 12 lakh
Nov - 17 lakh
Guess this would have peaked during IPL, when people also felt more comfortable ordering in compared to the first few months of Covid
Biggest order:
Order amount- Rs 1.99 lakh (after discount of Rs 66K)
Smallest order: Rs 10 (after discount of Rs 39)
