Humanity is a misleading word. It seems to refer only to human beings. Not true, said Nivedita. For 7 months, during the lockdown, she cooked and made sure her canine friends were fed and healthy.
These welcoming, wagging tails, they put a smile on our faces. Well, Nivedita made sure there was a smile on theirs.
When human survival instincts kicked in the hardest, one man decided to go against his own. Imtiyaz Ansari, the brave ambulance driver, ensured that victims of Covid-19 reached hospitals in time. The sound of his siren on the streets of Mumbai, was the sound of hope for many.
People like Imtiyaz Ansari are rare. They are necessary. They deserve every bit of our gratitude. Every little bit of it.
Efficiency is key at a time when the country is stretched for its resources. Dr. Lakdawala worked alongside the BMC to ensure that the NSCI Covid hospital has the highest recovery rates in the country. He converted an entire stadium into a hospital. He conceptualised portable ICUS inside shipping containers.
To be able to think creatively in stressful, life and death situations, is not everyone's cup of tea. He however, likes his strong and without cream.
