Patna, May 21 : Precautionary measures taken by the government regarding the coronavirus infection have been relaxed, but markets in many areas of Patna are still closed. Moreover, people are still avoiding going where markets are open.

In such a situation, in order to reduce the inconvenience to people in this lockdown, a new kind of business has started in Patna, where many local e-commerce companies are delivering goods at the doorstep. Not only this, these companies are providing other facilities like barber, beautician, electrician and Pandit who visit at home on request.

Many companies such as K Mart, Patna Cart, Chicken Wala are supplying rations, vegetables, fruits as well as dairy products and non-veg items at people’s doorstep.

Patna Cart is bringing Pandits, Barbers, Electricians to homes in this lockdown. People are ordering goods on WhatsApp or through companies’ app. This service is not only providing doorstep facilities to people but has also helped in generating employment. Moreover, it is significantly reducing the traffic burden on the roads.

Abhinav Das, the head of Patna Cart, told IANS that during the lockdown he realised that people, especially elderly persons living alone at home, needed to be provided with the necessary things at home. This would be a great help to them. Thereafter, he roped in some shopkeepers and started this business.

Das, a software engineer, said that not only social distancing is being taken care of in this work, but also the quality and hygiene of goods is highly maintained. He informed that 10-15 people have also got employment through this work.

He said: “With the Patna Cart app, you can get essential items like rations, vegetables, fruits, dairy products, medicines and pooja materials sitting at home. Apart from this, electricians, plumbers, barbers, home sanitization agencies and Pandits can be called home.”

Das claimed that all items are provided at fair prices. He said that this app has proved very beneficial for the elderly. He added: “I have started this work not for profit but to facilitate people.”

Abhishek Sahai of K Mart said that the goods are supplied in one to two hours after the order is received online. He said that a whole team is engaged in this work. Also, nobody has to pay a single extra rupee for this facility.

San Francisco, May 31 : Google and YouTube on Sunday put a black ribbon on its home page in the US, showing solidarity for protests against the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in police custody.

“We stand in support of racial equality, and all those who search for it,” the message read on the Google home page.

The same message was also placed on the US home page of Google-owned YouTube.

Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai tweeted: “Today on US Google & YouTube homepages we share our support for racial equality in solidarity with the Black community and in memory of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery & others who don’t have a voice.

“For those feeling grief, anger, sadness & fear, you are not alone,” Pichai added.

Last week, a policeman choked an African-American man Floyd, to death by kneeling on his neck in Minneapolis.

Several states in the US erupted in protests after the video went viral.

The riots stretching from New York on the east coast to Los Angeles on the west rocked the nation that was just beginning to relax the Covid-19 restrictions threatening to spread the disease.

The force of the protests that have turned violent comes from the ongoing brutality against minorities by police with two other recent cases adding to the fury behind the killing of Floyd.
