  • Akshaya Patra serving communities during the Pandemic

    The COVID-19 pandemic has put forth challenges that countries worldwide have not had to face in a long time. These are unprecedented times that have forced several countries to take preventive measures to contain the spread of the Coronavirus. When containment measures to curb the COVID-19 outbreak were implemented in India, people from vulnerable communities, such as daily-wage earners and domestic helpers, were the worst affected. Among other things, their access to food had become difficult, severely limited or even absent in some cases, leaving them exposed to hunger and starvation during the lockdown. In the event of widespread food insecurity triggered by a natural disaster, there is a need to collaborate services to provide food relief to the affected population. Groups and organisations with access to the necessary resources, such as corporate organisations and NGOs, can come together and aid the Government’s humanitarian efforts in such situations. In line with this, the Akshaya Patra Foundation has always come forward to undertake food relief across the country whenever called upon. Akshaya Patra is one of the implementing partners of the Government of India’s Mid-Day Meal (MDM) Scheme. The organisation began by feeding 1,500 children in one city. Today, it reaches out to over 1.8 million children across 12 states and two union territories every day through its vast network of kitchens it has established over the last two decades. Throughout its journey, Akshaya Patra has gone beyond its school feeding operations to use its network to develop an efficient response system to aid the Government’s humanitarian efforts during times of distress through relief feeding. Akshaya Patra has utilised its kitchen infrastructure and resources to serve the affected communities in various locations across India (Karnataka, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Odisha, Assam and Bihar) as well as beyond the borders in Nepal during the earthquake in 2015. In keeping with its essence to serve people, particularly in times of need, Akshaya Patra swiftly responded to the situation when the containment measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic left millions of people without any access to food. In March 2020, as the country first went into a national lockdown, Akshaya Patra collaborated with the Government and its donors to set up packaging centres for food relief kits and used its kitchens for cooking meals for the marginalised. Meals were served and food relief kits with essential groceries were distributed to daily-wage earners, labourers at construction sites, workers in industrial areas, migrant labourers and rough sleepers. Over 12 months, Akshaya Patra worked with the Government and donors to serve over 11.7 crore meals cumulatively in 18 states and two union territories. The organisation actively contributed to food and nutrition security of the vulnerable communities by serving over 60 million freshly cooked meals, 10.18 lakh food relief kits (over 40 million meal servings/each containing dry ration to cook 42 or 28 meals) and 7.6 lakh Happiness Boxes for MDM beneficiaries (each containing dry ration to cook 20 meals). Akshaya Patra’s kitchens, which it has established across the country over the last 20 years, were vital to its food relief work. The organisation utilised its kitchens to prepare cooked meals and delivered them to the locations assigned by the local authorities where they were served to those in need. As with the cooked meals, food relief kits were also in accordance with the local palate. In India’s southern and eastern states, such as Karnataka, Telangana, and Odisha, food relief kits contained rice, dal, refined oil, spices, sambar masala and vegetables with long shelf-life, such as potatoes and pumpkins. In North India, rice and sambar masala were replaced with wheat flour and garam masala, respectively. As with food relief kits, Happiness Kits also contained groceries, but these kits were designed specifically for MDM beneficiaries. These kits focused on health and nutrition and hygiene and education of the Foundation’s beneficiary children during the pandemic, with their contents ranging from ragi flour and glucose biscuits to toothpaste, toothbrush, sanitary pack for girls, colour pencils/crayons and activity workbook. With school closures resulting from the pandemic keeping millions of children away from the classroom, Akshaya Patra endeavoured to work with the Government and donors take learning and nutrition to its beneficiary children’s doorstep. Happiness kits were distributed in Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Odisha, Rajasthan, Telangana and Uttar Pradesh. Since March, Akshaya Patra has strived to address food and nutrition insecurity triggered by the pandemic by adopting need-based solutions. Through these endeavours, Akshaya Patra effectively demonstrated that it is conscious of its responsibility towards the children and communities and reiterated its commitment to support the Government’s efforts to serve them.

  • "Impossible is possible in the eyes of crime," says Ravi Kishan on &TV's Mauka - E - Vardaat

    &TV is all geared up to present its viewers with a riveting weekday crime series titled 'Mauka-E-Vardaat'. It is a show that ought to compel one to believe that the rhetoric 'reality' is stranger than fiction. Narrating some of the baffling crime stories, Bhojpuri Superstar and a well-known public and television personality Ravi Kishan will be seen giving a glimpse into some of the most shocking crimes. In a candid conversation, the popular actor talks in detail about the show and his role: 1.Tell us about your role in the show. How did you get associated with the show and what made you choose this role? I will be giving a prelude to some of the most chilling tales of unimaginable and mindboggling crimes, its magnitude of salaciousness and bizarreness. There have been so many shows in a variety of genres, but Mauka-E-Vardaat stood out for me. It is the kind of show that convinced me to be a part of it in a heartbeat. After understanding the concept in detail, I realized that the show would showcase such unthinkable and inconceivable crime stories beyond belief. The impossible is possible in the eyes of crime, and the people need to know that. These stories will be the hook point for the audience to watch. 2.How is Mauka-E-Vardat different from the variety of crime-based shows on Indian Television? Will it be a weekday or weekend series? There is a plethora of crime-based content available on Indian television these days, but & TV's Mauka-E-Vardaat is unique and refreshingly different. The daily episodes will showcase some of the most bizarre, unimaginable and inconceivable crime stories that will compel the audience to question – Yeh Hua TohKaise Hua? The show will an anthology series featuring the most thrilling and most mysterious crimes, inspired by real-life stories, leaving the audience at the edge of the seats with the most unpredictable turn of events. 3.What according to you is the USP of the show? What kind of crime stories can the viewers expect to see in the show? Apart from presenting the most inconceivable, unimaginable crimes, the show will also have a woman protagonist playing an instrumental role in unravelling these extraordinary crimes' mystery. The viewers can expect twisted crime mysteries in the show. 4.Crime-genre has always appealed to the audience across all age groups. What do you think could be a reason for this? The crime series genre has been and continues to the Indian audiences' all-time favourite. Indians appetite and fascination with salacious and mindboggling crime stories and mysteries has always been a cornerstone to various crime-based storytelling on Indian television. Crime fiction is appealing mainly because of the adventure and suspense as it offers the edge-of-the-seat thrill. With crime fiction, there comes an element of criminal psychology; people are often inquisitive about why one would commit a crime or how a criminal's mind works and what drove them into committing such a heinous crime. 5.Being a Bhojpuri superstar, how do you see the difference between Hindi and regional content? In my experience, the regional and Hindi content, though have similarities but stand out in their unique way. Languages are quite a good learning experience and exciting. No only one becomes fluent in the language but one also gets to work on different content that each has to offer. I get the best of both worlds! But I strongly relate to the Bhojpuri audience. When performing for them in their language, it is like 'Maa kehaath ka khaana' which gives me the confidence to accept that I am a Bhojpuri superstar. 6.Your message for the viewers/readers? My only message to the viewers is to keep their eyes open, be aware and watch out for any signs of a possible crime. Your safety always comes first. A criminal doesn't always look or behave like one, so it is essential to be mindful of your surroundings and teach your children to understand the difference between right and wrong, be aware and most importantly be cautious and alert. It is a joint effort and at the end of the day, it is the lives of our loved ones that matter more than anything in the world.

  • Chaiwala to CEO - An Inspiring journey of a Self Made Entrepreneur

    So what does it take to build a thriving business from the ground-up in an industry like Real Estate? In the words of Priyatham Kumar, Founder & CEO, Homes247, a leading real estate portal, it is sheer hard work. Mr. Priyatham’s Homes247.in, even after being a relatively new player, has established tie-ups for home financing with leading financial institutions like HDFC, SBI, and ICICI, to name a few. Today, the firm clocks over 10,000 visits per day on its website and have delivered homes to over 1700 homebuyers until now, and all this while being bootstrapped. Priyatham Kumar was born and brought up in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. His parents had a tea stall where he helped with the daily work from an early age. But his parents knew the value of education. Soon after his education, Mr. Kumar felt that he had a knack for sales, and he started as an FMCG salesman, rising through the ranks to become team lead, city head, regional head, VP, etc., across companies in Banking, Insurance, and Real Estate sectors. Commenting on the inspiration behind starting Homes247, he said, “After I attained the designation of a VP, I had to face a very odd experience at my last company, that was against the principles I held dear to my core. I left it with a heavy heart. But it gave me the strength and inspired me to start Homes247.in which I believed must cover what my previous organizations lacked, and much more.” He further added, “Because when the old guard or the elite fail to expand and experiment, the ones who are creative and innovative will ascend to the throne, because ultimately it's the common man making the choice and they want innovations that make lives easier”. The rise of digital has diminished the lines between urban and rural, even education is quite affordable now due to viable digital mediums. But real estate is still stuck in the last decade. Homes247.in on this note is now looking to expand into different business verticals and states across India." According to Mr. Priyatham, determination and understanding, the customer is the key to building a successful career or a business. Teamwork, he added, “Is overlooked by many startups that failed, but is the key ingredient to building a successful business.” When asked what message he has for budding entrepreneurs or people who face many challenges, he said “Don’t shy away from challenges, embrace them and grow. Behind every challenge, there is an opportunity. If you seek it out, it will lead to success.”
