Here's How 8 Major Companies & Their CEOs Have Stepped Up To Take Down Coronavirus

As the world scrambles together, collectively attempting to restrain the spread of Coronavirus, major CEOs and business leaders from around the world have taken up quite the task. Not only do they shoulder the responsibility of ensuring a mass-scale conversion from office operations to work-from-home - they've done so while the globe experiences major economic challenges, especially in the construction, air transport and chemical industries sectors. Fortunately, the mile-high club has overseen some major initiatives in recent days, stepping forward to put their massive resources to use - saving both billions of dollars and thousands of lives in the process, whether it's through direct medical aid, donation funds or fast-track research plans to help combat the virus. Here are some of the biggest ones we've seen the business world make in recent days and weeks. Amazon © Reuters The world's richest himself, Jeff Bezos, recently made his way to the White House to announce a pretty substantial undertaking. In order to meet skyrocketing delivery demands during the outbreak, the Amazon boss has committed to hiring 100,000 new employees at revised, higher wages - providing much-needed work, considering that the UN has predicted 24 crore lost jobs in the wake of the virus. Along with pooling in resources to the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation to create and deliver COVID-19 test kits, Amazon has also helped local businesses near its Seattle HQ who have suffered losses during the lockdown. Looking to prioritise essential goods such as medical gear, daily staples and baby supplies, the e-commerce giant has also initiated a supply revamp to ensure shortages are minimised. Apple © Reuters Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook released information surrounding the Californian tech giant's plans to help aid the world during the coronavirus crisis. In a Twitter address, Cook announced a pledge to donate 2 million masks to help protect medical professionals in shortage-struck areas, while its ongoing fundraiser shot past the $15 million mark. Apple is continuing to boost its donations by announcing a new initiative - for each dollar their employees contribute, the company will chip in two.  Microsoft © Reuters Microsoft head honcho Satya Nadella first reached out to his employees via an open letter that the CEO later published on LinkedIn. In it, he addresses the challenges faced by Microsoft's employees, while highlighting initiatives that seemed geared towards giving the world's researchers a fighting chance against COVID-19. Meanwhile, co-founder Bill Gates donated a $100 million commitment towards treatment and research of the virus. The first major collaborative project with Microsoft was undertaken alongside the famed Johns Hopkins University - the leading medical institution joined hands with Microsoft to create the most accurate possible Coronavirus case tracker. In addition to this, Microsoft has also partnered with other universities around the world, forming a concentrated, updated database of nearly 30,000 scholarly publications revolving around the virus itself. Facebook © Reuters CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook's services are facing 'big surges' in usage as the coronavirus forces millions around the world to stay home, describing it as 'well beyond' the main annual spike usually seen on New Year's Eve - with the social network replacing news outlets for millions of users, the company has decided to implement a new feature. By introducing a special 'coronavirus info centre', it helps to combat misinformation during these trying times. In addition, the CEO has ordered a donation of the company's stock of face masks - 725,000 units making their way to medical staff in need on the front lines. Mahindra Group © Reuters Indian business royalty Anand Mahindra already has quite the fan following. The 64-year old tycoon has developed a strong following on social media over the years for his jokes, wit and occasional donations and charity work. As COVID-19 further progressed through this week, Mahindra truly put his money where his mouth is - announcing a fund to help support self-employed and small business owners, backed by 100% of his own salary. A lesson to learn for many of the leaders on this list, to be sure. Mahindra's fervent focus on eradicating the virus doesn't just show up on his paycheck - after propounding the 'stage-3' status of India's coronavirus threat, he raised concerns surrounding the need for temporary hospitals and ventilators. Mahindra aims to aid both these efforts by offering his Club Mahindra resorts to the government and simultaneously developing plans to manufacture ventilator units in Mahindra's factories. Alibaba © Reuters One of the earliest business leaders to step forth and make a point about combating coronavirus, Alibaba founder and second-richest man in China, Jack Ma, made his intentions clear with a massive $14 million going directly to fund vaccine research. A whopping half-million testing kits, one million face masks and several thousand protective suits were also donated to medical workers around the world, ranging from the United States to South Africa and even minor countries in Southeast Asia. "The pandemic we face today can no longer be resolved by any individual country," Ma said in a recent statement. “Delivering fast is not easy, but we'll get it done!” Xiaomi India © Reuters “Lakhs of N95 masks will be donated across State governments such as Karnataka, Punjab and Delhi government, government hospitals and state police starting this week,” Xiaomi India MD Manu Jain said earlier this week.  The Chinese mobile giant has sold over 100 million phones in the country since it arrived five years ago, and has little intention to stop. While keeping operations running by introducing a 'phone home delivery' for buyers, social distancing at retail outlets and vastly upgraded sanitisation in factories, it continues to support Indian government hospitals by donating important gear such as protective suits for doctors. Zara © Reuters One of the worst-hit sectors in the economy is unsurprisingly fashion - not a lot to dress up for when in quarantine. Spain-based fast fashion brand Zara shut down 4,000 stores worldwide, while parent company Inditex decided to help out the anti-viral effort by donating over 300,000 masks this week, with more on the way. In the meantime, Zara's manufacturing network is being adjusted to meet Spain's needs for hospital gowns - a growing need as the case count rises past 35,000. It also said it would make available to Spain its vast logistics and supplier network, especially in China, to meet Spain's emergency needs of both medical and textile materials such as protective masks, gloves, goggles and caps.

Sadhna & Shivraj Singh Chouhan�s Story Proves True Love Can Be Found In Arranged Marriage Too

Love always seems to find a way of sneaking into our lives when we are least expecting it to show up. Itâll make a home out of our most well-kept dreams and desires, until we are either living it or leaving it. © Twitter Love understands no logic or reasoning and works by its own set of rules that nobody is allowed to mess with. It challenges and defeats every argument and inhibitions in its path until all there remains is a rush of feelings and a slush of emotions.
Perhaps thatâs how love succeeded in turning a once sworn-bachelor Shivraj Singh Chouhan into the much-in-love, happily married man that he is today. The Backstory © Facebook - Sadhna singh Chouhan Sworn-in as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh for the fourth time in his almost three-decade-long political career, Shivraj Singh Chouhan has a lot more to himself than being MPâs longest-serving Chief Minister, or being lovingly called Mamaji by those who admire him.
Born into a humble family in MPâs Jait village in 1959, Chouhan was merely a teenager when he joined the RSS as a 13-year-old. He went on to become a Philosophy scholar and completed his Masters from Barkatullah University in Bhopal. It was around this time that he decided to join politics, a decision that went on to impact his personal life and relationships. Swore-Off The âShaadi Ka Laddooâ © Facebook - Sadhna singh Chouhan According to reports, with the decision to strengthen his footing in the political scene, Chouhan jumped into action headfirst and buried himself into work. Soon enough, he declared to his parents that he has no intention of getting married and helped his siblings get married instead.
Along the way, Chouhan managed to establish his political career by getting elected to the State Assembly from Budhni Constituency in 1990 and eventually becoming a Lok Sabha MP from Vidisha in 1991. When Love Strikes © Facebook - Sadhna singh Chouhan Reportedly, with the stability that came to his career at this point, Chouhanâs parents began insisting that he re-think his marriage plans. Failing to put an end to their requests, Chouhan eventually agreed to meet his wife Sadhna.
All it took was one formal meeting for the MP CM to jump on to the train and agree to the arranged marriage. The duo hadnât even spoken to each other once before it was settled that the two would be getting married.  The Declaration Of Love © Facebook - Sadhna singh Chouhan Owing to the orthodox beliefs of the time, interacting or meeting with oneâs would-be wife or husband was frowned upon. But none of that could stop a smitten Shivraj Singh Chouhan from coming clear to his future wife. 
Thatâs when he poured all his feelings onto paper and sent a letter to Sadhna introducing himself and confessing that their married life may not be anything like the regular ones, as he might usually be busy with political duties and may not be able to give her enough time. © Facebook - Sadhna singh Chouhan Sadhna, for her part, loved Shivraj Singh Chouhanâs honest confession and thoughtfulness, and the rest, as we know, is history. Today the couple has been happily married for 27 years and have two children together.
Today Sadhna Singh âbhabhiâ as people lovingly call her is not only the support system of her husbandâs political and administrative affairs, but also the strength behind her husband and his roaring success with the constituency.

Centre Asks States To Allow Veterinary Services To Go On During COVID-19 Lockdown & It's Laudable

Amidst the heavy lockdown and curfew situation in cities like Delhi, Punjab, Maharashtra and more, lives of people have almost come to a standstill. Except essential services, nothing stands open, and while we may grumble about it now, it's only for the larger good, especially keeping the COVID-19 outbreak in mind. 
The pandemic is still not contained and can spread from person to person even with minimal contact. So, it's safe to stay home and in isolation to curtail the spread of this deadly virus, suggest experts.  Although people are widely practising self isolation across the globe, the animals are not necessarily in isolation and can need medical help or treatment when everything else is shut down. © Twitter It's a common myth that animals like dogs can be carriers of COVID-19, but the World Health Organisation (WHO) has dismissed any such claim by saying it's still not confirmed if animals can be carriers or be infected at all. So, if you have pets, take care of them and give them all the love they need, especially now that you're in absolute isolation.
Recently, the Narendra Modi government told all the states in the country to ensure that medical help for animals is treated as an essential service, which should not be suspended over the COVID-19 lockdowns across the country. âIt is requested that veterinary hospitals and dispensaries in the state, including private veterinary clinics, veterinary pathologies, animal shelters etc. function in the normal course and the veterinary services be considered in the list of âEssential Servicesâ,â said a letter, addressed to all chief secretaries dated March 23, by the centre. âIt is necessary to ensure continuous emergency services in the animal husbandry and veterinary sector, especially in emergent animal health issues situations. âThese May include but are not restricted to, emergency services like disease diagnosis and treatment, monitoring of any emergency livestock and poultry diseases, immediate disease reporting, etc,â the letter further said, which was written by the joint secretary of the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Upamanyu Basu.  © Flickr Even with this order being passed through successfully, veterinarians have been advised to maintain absolute standard of hygiene and avoid public gatherings at all costs if they're treating animals.
On the same day, the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) wrote another letter to all states emphasising that all law enforcement agencies ensure that animals and birds do not suffer due to hunger during the lockdown due to COVID-19.  âThis is a valuable service consistently provided by compassionate individuals and the absence of it may cause a large number of animals and birds to suffer and die and carcasses of the dead animals and birds may further spread different diseases amongst community which will be difficult to control,â Dr O.P. Chaudhary, Director of the AWBI has written. In fact a tweet from BJP MP Maneka Gandhi, regarding pet shop owners locking animals inside their shops, also surfaced on the internet asking people to help these animals out, in case they were heard inside locked shops. âThe situation is quite alarming. In some places, food is being stoppedâ¦No animal grains and chara is being allowed to come to Haryana from UP. Even pedigree from Hyderabad is being stopped by Mumbai,â Maneka Gandhi said. © Twitter While we're concerned about the health of our pets and street animals, we also don't want them to succumb to their illnesses at home or outside. With animals outside being at great risk of dying due to negligence, their carcasses can also help spread other infections and diseases. 
Hence, vet services being functional at this point in time is absolutely necessary.

A Boy Figuring Out How To Play Football Alone Is The Most Wholesome Self-Isolation Content

We're all (hopefully) under self-quarantine at the moment and doing our part in preventing the spread of coronavirus as much as we can. It's the simplest yet the most important thing during this global pandemic and it's great to see everyone coming together to get through this. But, self-isolation can get a little too, well you know, isolating. There are also thousands of jokes and memes that people have made about being under quarantine and it's honestly so needed. Everyone needs some entertainment at a time like this and I think I stumbled upon the most wholesome quarantine content. Playing football can get a little tricky when you're a goalkeeper but also an only child. Well, a genius kid came up with the best solution.

5 Scary Ways Not Having A Good Sleeping Routine Is Ruining Your Skin & Hair Disastrously

One massive plus point of working from home is the fact that afternoon naps, and evening soirees are again a thing.  One major drawback of those afternoon naps is the manner in which it messes up your sleep cycle.  © iStock This irregularity in our sleep patterns leads to a number of things. First, you won't be able to get REM sleep or Rapid Eye Movement sleep. This is one of the most crucial stages of sleep, during which, your brain actually rejuvenates itself and allows your nervous system to recuperate.  This also is the phase during most of the body's maintenance and upkeep work is carried out, as it is during this phase that most of the enzymes and hormones that are needed for cell regeneration are synthesized and used. © iStock Here's what happens when you don't have a set sleeping routine. 1. Hair Fall Increases Drastically © iStock Continually changing the time when you go to sleep, can cause significant hormonal changes, which can have an adverse effect on your overall health. The first thing that happens is that your body is unable to produce sufficient levels of human growth hormone or HGH, which is vital for hair growth and to prevent hair from falling off. Low HGH causes the follicles to weaken, and eventually die. 2. Skin Breakouts like Acne & Zits © iStock Because your brain is not able to regulate the hormones secreting glands properly and in a timely manner, your skin starts secreting more oil, which causes the pores to grow large. This, in turn, causes acne, more pimples, and zits breaking out regularly.  This is further aggravated by the fact that irregularity in sleeping routines cause a great hormonal imbalance. 3. Substantially More Grey Hair © iStock om weak or dead hair follicles, lack of a proper sleep cycle can also cause your hair to grey faster than it would normally. That's because the hormonal imbalance that follows when you're not sleeping properly, makes your body produce less eumelanin, the pigment that makes your hair black.  Lack of eumelanin also has adverse effects on the way your skin functions, which eventually means that the basic functions of the skin, like regulating the body's temperature and water level, go for a toss. 4. Nails Become Brittle © iStock Lack of a set sleeping routine or proper sleep can mess up the nail root matrix, and make them grow very brittle. That means, that your nails chip easily, or worse, get torn and uprooted very easily. Both of these conditions are extremely painful, and if not treated properly can take a long time to heal. 5. You Age Rapidly © iStock Regularly cutting back on your sleep, can cause your skin to lose its elasticity and generally become more irritable. Also, since our body tends to repair itself when we sleep, the skin isn't able to repair itself at the pace as it normally needs to.  This also leads to decreased hydration, which ultimately leads to dryness, severe pigmentation, wrinkles, and visibly large pores. The result is, that even though you may only be 26, you may end up looking like a 40-year-old.

Man Dies Of Hantavirus In China & People Are Like 'Why Is China Releasing New Viruses Like Songs'

When the whole world is still trying to tackle Coronavirus, China has introduced one more virus, Hantavirus. Well, the good news is that it isn't contagious. Let me tell you that it's not a new virus and is spread mainly by rodents and can cause varied diseases in people. A person from China's Yunnan Province died on a bus due to Hantavirus and rest of the 32 people present on the same bus were also tested for the same. The news has gone viral on social media and people on Twitter have started trending #Hantavirus.  A person from Yunnan Province died while on his way back to Shandong Province for work on a chartered bus on Monday. He was tested positive for #hantavirus. Other 32 people on bus were tested. pic.twitter.com/SXzBpWmHvW — Global Times (@globaltimesnews) March 24, 2020 Now, it has got people talking about the virus and people are questioning China for the same. People are making memes on how China is the manufacturer of all the weird viruses. So basically, Hantavirus comes from virus-containing particles from rodent urine. On Twitter, people are actually (strangely) questioning the eating habits of Chinese people in this light. How did the world offend China? Why are they releasing viruses like new songs? Throw the whole Country away ð¤¦ð½‍âï¸#Hantavirus — Popmepretty (@jane_otah) March 24, 2020 Odd even karke marenge Corona and #Hantavirus ð¥ marne kee liye taiyaar raho mitron https://t.co/Qdt6Hyjso2 — Prashasti (@_O_PANDEY) March 24, 2020 STOP EATING RATS

Ndi that country: pic.twitter.com/0XwWVKgd8X — Okonkwo Anderson (@AndersonOkonkwo) March 24, 2020 People are requesting Chinese to turn vegetarian, considering even Coronavirus is said to have originated from consuming bats and snakes. Coronavirus was first reported in late December 2019 in Wuhan, a major city in central China, and has been rapidly spreading. The whole world is facing a big threat, owing to Coronavirus. In India, there are around 500 active cases of Coronavirus and it's suspected they are many more cases that are still going unreported. As for now, a lockdown has been imposed on all the 30 states and if things don't get under control, it's quite possible that the government will impose a nation-wide curfew. MensXP urges you to stay at home and stay safe.

An Easy 7-Step Guide For Anyone Who's Trying A Facial At Home For The First Time

Spending such long stretches of time in isolation can easily get frustrating, and we're trying to get creative with how to spend this time in isolation while making the most of it. With several states imposing curfews to prevent the pandemic, your best bet at maintaining a healthy skin is learning the tricks of the salon during this time. Also, with the scorching heat on the horizon and the daily wear and tear your skin has to endure due to shaving and other harsh products, if anything, facials are essential.  It's a known fact that men have thicker skin with larger pores, and because they shave regularly, or even if they don't, to have healthy and problem-free skin, getting a facial once a month is ideal. Here's a step-by-step guide for all those who are trying their hands at facial at home for the first time. __ECOMLOOKS__329__ __ECOMLOOKS__330__ __ECOMLOOKS__331__ __ECOMLOOKS__332__ __ECOMLOOKS__333__ __ECOMLOOKS__334__ __ECOMLOOKS__335__

Airline Crew Members Harassed By Neighbours Amid Coronavirus Fears & No One Is Clapping Now

We're all going through one of the scariest things we've all ever experienced, the Coronavirus pandemic has made everyone panic-stricken and just paranoid about everyone.  While so many people have the privilege of staying inside and working from home, there are still the ones who are on the front lines and their job requires them to be outside and potentially get infected. That mainly consists of people in the medical field and everyone working for airlines. They have no option but to still work and risk their lives and in return, they are being harassed for it. A lot of airline crew members are sharing videos of themselves breaking down because of how they're being ostracised by their neighbours and even their families are suffering because of them potentially being infected. Yes, it's okay to take measures but acting out of fear and losing all your empathy, especially at a time like this, is not the way to go. Can't believe how people are treating our airline crew. This @IndiGo6E crew is nearly broken from being discriminated & taunted. When she is gone for her flight, her mother is even refused groceries in her society. Police is also not helping. @amitshah #coronavirus #india. pic.twitter.com/yuuTnYhqKq — Tarun Shukla (@shukla_tarun) March 24, 2020 People applaud them from bringing all the people stuck abroad back home and this how they repay him. And look at this. @AirIndiain crew being harassed ar 10 pm last night Lawrence Road, Keshav Puram, Delhi. And they are dying to come back to India if stranded outside the country on special AI, IndiGo etc flights. Cc : @DelhiPolice pic.twitter.com/Y1dI62oLQ2 — Tarun Shukla (@shukla_tarun) March 24, 2020 It's that simple. The Cabin Crew who are "the invisible heroes" in the fight against #CoronaVirus, are being harassed by housing societies & flat owners. We are not a threat & we do take all kind of precautions onboard our flights. If you can't appreciate us, then atleast don't ostracize us!ð pic.twitter.com/xKDi9mbJnN — BiTANKO BiSWAS (@Air_India_CREW) March 21, 2020 Yes, please. Doctors, medical staff, flight crews being assaulted/shunned. Aren't these the people we supposedly came together to thank on Sunday? Govt needs to eschew its tokenism, orders,monologues and talk to citizens, answer questions on how to deal with these unprecedented times. https://t.co/DoeeqzApzK — Suhasini Haidar (@suhasinih) March 24, 2020 No compassion. This is how our airline crew are treated by 'Indians' who clapped to show solidarity.

She is from Indigo airlines. She and her mother are getting attacked/harassed on the name of #COVID . Even police is not helping.

This is hate, pure hate.pic.twitter.com/rl52Tcb9lv — Sanghamitra (@AudaciousQuest) March 24, 2020 What did the clapping accomplish? That 5 pm clapping was mere tokenism and a spectacle, another PR exercise for the great leader. The ones who have put their lives at stake are being stigmatised and ostracized by the same people who were a part of that spectacle. This is so inhuman. https://t.co/TnPbMTdnKB — Rana Ayyub (@RanaAyyub) March 24, 2020 Hmm. this is the main reason that people don't want to be seen going to quarantine. they instinctively know how they are going to get treated.

Indians may not know social distancing but they know how to brutally enforce social untouchability. Its in their blood. https://t.co/WSf5AZi0FW — (((Dominique Fisherwoman))) (@AbbakkaHypatia) March 24, 2020 Unacceptable is the word. This is heartbreaking to watch and hear. Sunday evening's thanksgiving was not only tokenism but also highly hypocritical if we don't actually believe in what we stood on balconies for. Just shameful, mean-spirited and unacceptable. https://t.co/lJnZsb4lSS — Maya Mirchandani (@maya206) March 24, 2020 This is not okay. This is really appalling! Doctors returning home from the hospital in Telangana are being stopped and harassed by police for breaking curfew.

Set The Music © iStock Think of the genre of the music that relaxes you the most and set the system up in your bathroom safely in a way that it doesn't come in contact with water. 
Some Bluetooth speakers are designed in a way that can be hung on the wall easily and securely. Set the system in place, this will be your first step in creating an ambience for the spa. 2. Create A Face Mask At Home © iStock For a DIY face mask, mix gram flour, sandalwood, turmeric, rose water with ¼ tbsp. of honey. You could also look up a face mask online with the ingredients that you have at home (btw a peeled potato is also a facemask). You can also cut cucumber slices for extra points. 
Set the mask concoction in a ceramic bowl in your bathroom along with the cucumber slices on the side, to be used when you start your spa session. 3. Light Up Scented Candles © iStock This step is important as it's trying to engage all your senses in making your washroom feel like a spa. A scented candle can instantly change the ambience of the bathroom. 
On the side, you can also soak in a mix of Epsom salt, baking soda, chamomile tea, and rosemary. This concoction is good at calming stressed skin. 4. The Secret To The Spa-Like Soaked Towels © iStock Wet hand towels, add a drop or two of the essential oil that you like and have at home, and heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds to create warm, steamy and fluffy towels for your skin post the mask.
5. Keep A Fragranced Moisturiser © iStock For the make-shift spa day,  fragranced moisturisers are great to lather-up on at the end of the session. Something from The Body Shop or The Bath & Body Works, are great for this step. 
You can steal these from your girlfriend's stash as well. While massaging your skin, make sure to lather behind your arms and your back. Lastly, pre-download that playlist on Spotify, put your phone on airplane mode before you sit in for the Spa session for a wholesome experience.

A List Of Conspiracy Theories About Coronavirus That Uncles Share On WhatsApp Family Groups

It's true that coronavirus pandemic is freaking everyone out. And more so, our family members, uncles, and aunties who choose to believe what they read on family groups on Whatsapp and Facebook rather than watching actual news. So, the WhatsApp text that your uncle sent that reveals the miraculous cure for coronavirus should be instantly deleted. However, fake news is more widespread than just in your family, and more often than not creates panic that is uncalled for. It's important to educate ourselves with how we should be dealing with this situation with the WHO (World Health Organisation) recommended precautionary measures like washing our hands ever so often, distancing ourselves socially, etcetera. Now, that we've set things straight, some fake news around coronavirus has been quite hilarious. So, we thought we'll share some wild conspiracy theories with you. 1. Coronavirus Turns You Into A Zombie © iStock In Malaysia, online rumours spread that the novel coronavirus can make you act like a zombie. The Walking Dead kind. The claim that individuals infected with this virus will behave like zombies was then dismissed by the government soon after.
2. Scientists Invented The Virus © iStock The Russian news Sputnik claims "very smart biologists and pharmacists" in Latvia invented the new COVID-19 coronavirus. Other sources close to the Kremlin said, it was made in the British military's Porton Down facilities. We all know that it was traced to the Wuhan market by now.
3. Drinking Bleach Can Cure Coronavirus © iStock Bleach, which people refer to as âMiracle Mineral Solutionâ, has a history of being promoted by fringe groups as a cure or vaccine for everything from autism to cancer and HIV/AIDS. While it could probably clean your stomach, it will definitely poison you as well.
4. Coronavirus Was Funded By Bill Gates And World Health Organization © iStock Some people claim that Bill Gates and Melinda Foundation, in partnership with the World Health Organization âplannedâ the coronavirus pandemic. Twitter user @Jordan_Sather_ claimed that they filed a patent for the coronavirus vaccine in 2015 which was approved in 2018. He further went on to share the related documents that supported the bizarre claim. However, the papers obviously show that the patent filed was for potential vaccine development that only covered the avian strain of coronavirus that apparently affects birds, a leading publication reported.
5. Avoiding Eating Ice Cream Can Prevent Coronavirus © iStock Apparently, avoiding cold drinks and ice cream can help stop coronavirus. Some people even think eating spicy food can help protect them from infection. These claims are spreading through WhatsApp as well as as TikTok. Maybe, this is why aunties ask us to not eat ice-cream these days.

Ranveer Singh's IG Pictures Are Too Relatable & Reflect Our Feelings About Self-Quarantining

The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to recede into our houses and practise social distancing. This is going to continue for a couple of weeks with no certainty as to when things will be back to routine life. Celebrities are no exception to this. Like us, celebrities too find themselves in an odd situation of sitting at home with plenty of time to do things they never fathomed were possible.  In fact, in the last two weeks, a lot of people have become a lot more active on social media, courtesy no outside contact whatsoever. Celebrities too have started engaging with fans through their IG accounts. For instance, Ranveer Singh has become a lot more active on Instagram. In fact, since yesterday he's posted 5 posts already. What's interesting is, that his post reflects some of the feelings that we've been going through as well in self-quarantine. Take a look. 1. This picture sums up how sometimes, one can get lazy in the quarantine. In fact, having no fixed routine can sometimes mean not getting out of bed for an entire day and not taking a shower. While one may assume that celebrities aren't like that, that's not necessarily true. While this picture is from an earlier shoot of Ranveer Singh's, it does reflect the sentiment of admitting to not groom once in a while. View this post on InstagramMe coming out of quarantineA post shared by (@ranveersingh)2. Gulping down Nutella jars one after the other, we've all been guilty of this.   View this post on InstagramEk toh gaya ð ab tera kya hoga, Bajirao?A post shared by (@ranveersingh) 3.

Here's A Check List Of Everything To Stock Up On To Survive The Coronavirus Lockdown

In the age of enticing food delivery apps like Zomato and Swiggy that have completely changed the landscape of how we order our food and more importantly how often we order our food, which no one can deny has increased at an exponential rate in the last few years, dealing with a pandemic now has been rather unsettling. In the last few weeks, amidst the coronavirus crises, a lot of us have had to abruptly change our food choices as most of us have started working from home. With paranoia increasing, a lot of us have had to stop ordering food online and switch to cooking in the kitchen. And, if you're living with your family like me, your family will definitely not let you order from outside. In fact, smuggling in food, if caught is met with fuming stares and justifiably so, with a whopping rise in Covid-19 patients, the last thing we want is to transition into a situation like Italy which our country most definitely cannot handle. This means that you need to stock up your kitchen for the next couple of weeks in a way that does not leave you frustrated for good food. With rising pandemic panic, people are stocking up like never before, which means you'll need to get your kitchen stocked up with essentials. This doesn't mean that you get six months' worth of food. Firstly, that's impractical and the food might get spoilt and secondly, the supply is anyway less, so you should stick to what you need and leave the rest for other people to take. 1. Let's start with basics, you need to make sure your food staples are well accounted for in the next two weeks. This refers to staples in a regular Indian diet. Rice, wheat flour, potatoes, onions, lentils that you prefer on the regular, kidney beans, chickpeas, and sugar. Make sure you have enough to last you a while. These ingredients are versatile and can be cooked in a number of ways.  © iStock 2. For the freezer, you could get packets of peas, corn, among other vegetables that can be frozen and meat that can be frozen for a while, these are ingredients that you can fish out to make the everyday meals interesting. 
© iStock 3. Stock long-lasting fruits like bananas, apples, grapefruit, oranges. Unripe bananas will ripen over the course of several days, so you can enjoy them as you go. You could also slice and freeze them for snacking or to toss in smoothies down the line. 
© Varun Dhawan/ Instagram 4. For daily essentials like milk, eggs, and bread, subscription services come in handy. Apps like BB Daily and Amazon offer great delivery services. However, taking into account the high demand at present that can result in late deliveries, you could check with your kirana stores if they offer delivery services. If your state is under lockdown, it's important to know that these delivery services are still working even if they deliver late.
© iStock 5. Another Indian kitchen staple is the 'masala box' that filled with all the condiments and spices that are an essential component of every dish. You'll have to make sure all the masalas are stocked up well.
© iStock 6. For snacking, you could stock up on jars of peanut butter, cheese, and Nutella that is easily available on these subscription services as well. 
© iStock 7. You also need to account for food that suits your health needs and for people you're living with, for different health conditions, you'll have a list of things that you need to avoid and things you definitely need to stock up on. Make sure, you're all set with that stuff stocked in the cabinet as well.
© Ranveer Singh/ Instagram While I'm sure that stocking up on these essentials hasn't been tough, it's letting the stock sit in the cabinets that are an actual problem. We're referring to the constant cravings that you will now have whilst sitting at home. Not stepping out of your house also means that you're losing out on your daily steps targets and the gym/cult sessions that kept your weight on track. And bingeing on fattening foods is only going to make the situation worse. So, you could also make it point to stock up on healthier alternatives that work for you. In general, establishing a routine, in terms of when you'll have your meals helps to keep your meals in check.

Anand MahindraOne of the few Indians who is loved for his genuine concerns and generosity whenever humanity calls for help. The industrialist has announced to give up his  full salary towards a relief fund and also he has offered to convert the Mahindra resorts into temporary care facilities, and has pledged to look into how his companyâs manufacturing unit aid in the manufacturing of more ventilators.  © Twitter According to the experts, India is currently in the Phase 3 of the pandemic and if we don't continue to follow precautionary measures stringently, India could be hit hard and things will go out of proportion for the country. 
Our celebrities back home are urging their fans and followers to stay home, adhere to the lockdown norms and spend quality time with our families. No news of any donations or initiatives have come forward so far but they are keeping up with their job of keeping us entertained at least, let's give them that.  As a common person, who cannot maybe make global donations worth millions, there are a few things we still can do to contribute and make our country safer. If possible you can take out few minutes of your day and feed the stray dogs and cats around your house. With restaurants being shut, a large number of innocent animals can starve easily since finding food will be a task.  Also, if you know any aged people living around you, maybe you can volunteer to pick up some groceries for them when you do it for yourself. It takes simple efforts to help each other after all.

4 Super Easy Ways To Clip Your Nails At Home Without Hurting Yourself

If you see the good side, clipping your nails is actually a straight forward thing. It is all about trimming your nails when they grow long. But the crucial thing here is that your nails need more care and nourishment than just trimming. During this self-quarantine phase, you don't need to call a manicurist or go out. Instead you can be at the comfort of your home and fix these issues yourself.  Here's how you ramp up the way you cut your nails without hurting yourself: 1. Don't Cut Straight  © iStock Whenever you start trimming your nails, make sure the clipper is round-bladed. While using this, cut it like the curve of the blade. Make sure you are not cutting it straight on as it will ultimately lead to nail bending and you will damage them. It is okay to cut it three to four times before but slowly work the clipper or you could end up hurting yourself.
2. Take Care Of The White Line © iStock Before you start cutting your nails, always check how long is the white line at the top of your nails. If you notice that it has exceeded the fingertip length, only then you should reach out for your nail clipper. If you do pre-cut, it could hamper the skin beneath it.
Make sure while you are cutting, you match all the nails with the smallest tip. That way all the nails will look well synced and neat. 3. Don't Forget Hangnails  © iStock Hangnails are really painful, especially if you cut them off with your teeth. It leads to bleeding and hurts for days to come. Take a clipper, and leave the base area, trimming the rest. Never leave it open since the area is super sensitive and the condition will only worsen from this point.
4. Clean Underneath © iStock This is one step that should be followed ardently every day. Your nails are a safety net for germs and grime and hence a cuticle pusher will come in handy during such times. It helps scrape away the dirt underneath. It is easy to pierce your skin so be cautious while doing this step.
5. Use A Filer  © iStock Am Emory board is really helpful in getting even nails that look perfect to the T. It helps maintain the length on days you don't have enough time. Run it in one direction and scrub it properly all across, starting from the edge and then to the centre. Repeat it all over again, till the time you achieve a standard length.
Post all this, wash your hands with cold water and apply hand lotion as it will help keep your nails nourished and away from hangnails.

Indians Take Out 'Corona Rally' During Janta Curfew & Turn Social Distancing Into A Joke

A pandemic that has gripped the world has basically brought the lives of people on this planet to a standstill. While half of the globe is on a lockdown, residents of every country are trying to find their own coping mechanisms to deal with the anxiety and the fear of staying locked in which is part of the "social distancingââ. Earlier on March 19, Prime Minister Modi addressed the nation, in his televised speech, and called for a "Janta Curfew" on March 22 between 7am and 9pm. He also called on Indians to gather on their balconies, yards of their home premises and windows at 5pm on the same day of Janta Curfew to demonstrate their appreciation of these critical service providers by clapping, clanging metal vessels, or ringing bells for five minutes. The country surely responded well but people in some parts of the nation probably went too far and didn't get the real idea behind this suggestion.  Looks like they didn't understand about the part where you are supposed to practice social distancing and stay HOME.  People actually took out insane rallies to clap, dance and bang utensils in colonies thus jeopardising the whole idea of "social distancing" - ironic since this was the idea behind PM Modi's call for Janta Curfew. Besides, this has only wasted the efforts of these critical service providers, who are working day in and day out for us.  Here, take a look: Why cant some people cant understand the seriousness and the word #jantacurfew disappointed to see people on road when #covid19 is spreading so badly..if you are in this video be ashamed of yourself.requesting police and government to come up with more strict rules @narendramodi pic.twitter.com/tlefmTfofs â Jay Bhanushaali (JB) (@jaybhanushali0) March 22, 2020Bombay folks celebrating the demise of coronavirus by coming out on the street in groups pic.twitter.com/nNQ8uNb3Bt â Ankur Bhardwaj (@Bhayankur) March 22, 2020Thread

But Iâm quite certain that at least some of them believed the bizarre rumour that banging pots will cause virus-killing vibrations. Mass ignorance is now a critical danger to public health in India. â Mohamed Zeeshan (@ZeeMohamed_) March 22, 2020What was sadder I think is the fact that in some places like districts in Pilibhit, police officers were seen strolling casually with the public clapping and ringing bells.  Hi @pilibhitpolice @Dmpilibhit , this photo is from your official tweet . Can you please explain why the police chief and DM totally disregarded safe - distance norms and led this procession at 5 pm during the #JantaCurfew ? .... pic.twitter.com/xyLrnoGNg5 â Alok Pandey (@alok_pandey) March 22, 2020A quick two minutes into wondering why and how we as a democracy are failing to practice one simple rule of social distancing? Mass ignorance is surely a devil breeding like the virus in the air. 
Please do not take this opportunity to visit relative or chill with friends. You probably might not be infected but you can be a carrier. Push yourself and the people around you to sing and dance in isolation, not in the community parking lot!

6 Bollywood Actors Who Have Disappeared From The Industry & We Don't Really Miss Them

Hundreds and thousands of people move to Mumbai everyday with just one dream of becoming an actor. Some people struggle really hard and yet don't get that chance, while some of them get that golden chance but despite having talent, looks and the right attitude, they get lost after their grand debut. Most of us know how difficult it is to get a break in Bollywood and to uphold the success that follows is even tougher.  Here we have a list of such B-town actors, just a film or two old, who got their big break in the acting industry and eventually got lost.  Check it out:  1. Fardeen Khan Fardeen Khan debuted in the year 1998 in the film Prem Aggan. The son of veteran actor Feroz Khan did many films in his career of twelve years such as Jungle, Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, Om Jai Jagadish, No Entry, Heyy Babyy, and All the Best: Fun Begins.  Despite his good looks, he couldnât really impress the audience and his last film Dulha Mil Gaya failed badly at the box office. 2. Jugal Hansraj He started his career as a child artist in the film Masoom in the year 1983 and later was seen in blockbuster film Mohabbatein.  Jugal was liked by the audience and he has a dreamy face and a convincing screen presence. Despite all this, he couldnât stay for long in Bollywood and was last seen in Madhuri Dixit starrer Aaja Nachle in the year 2007. 3. Ayesha Takia Ayesha Takia initially started her career with debuting in music videos in the year 2004. She acted in films like Salaam- E- Ishq, Wanted and Dor. She also received a Screen Award for Best Actress Critics for the film Dor, but failed to make her name in the Bollywood A-list actors. 
4. Zayed Khan We donât know where this one disappeared! He was first seen on the big screen in 2003 in the film Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne.  He was also seen in films like Main Hoon Na, Dus, Fight Club â Members Only, Yuvvraaj, and Blue. However, the actor was forgotten soon and wasn't seen on the silver screen since then.  5. Celina Jaitly Celina Jaitly became Miss India in the year 2001 and started her career with debuting alongside Fardeen Khan in Janasheen in 2003.  She was also seen in films like No Entry, Apna Sapna Money Money, Golmaal Returns but failed to sustain in the industry.  6. Harman Baweja  Just like our governmentâs five-year plan, the actor had a five-film career in Bollywood and all of his films were a big flop.  He acted in films like Whatâs Your Raashee and Love Story 2050. The actor was also said to have dated Priyanka Chopra during his time in the industry.  Did we miss any other actor? Let us know in the comments section below.

5 Famous Actors Who Found Success After 40 Proving That Age Has Got Nothing To Do With Talent

Bollywood is a churning machine of talent and while "catch ém while they are young" is the mantra for a lot of successful actors in the industry, some of the most talented people in the industry managed to find major success only after the age of 40.   Here is the list of five actors who have proved that age has got nothing to do with talent: 1. Boman Irani No one could go back to what would have become of the Munnabhai franchise without the presence of this talented actor who began his career in the industry only after he was 40 years of age. View this post on InstagramNavroze Mubarak to one and all!!!!! For the first time on Navroze Iâm not at a Parsi Natak. On our terrace instead. Will go down and spend the evening with family. Not a bad idea at all. The terrace however displayed a rather crisp and pastel skyline. A positive takeaway from all this. So once again. NAVROZE MUBARAK. One more thing. Whatsapp forwards spread a disease called Panic. We know what to do. So just do it. Stay home with family and take the prescribed precautions. Soap, distance and smile. They arenât very tough to follow.A post shared by (@boman_irani)2. Adil MishraHe got some attention in the 2010 Ishqiya but after a few blink and miss performances, he was nowhere to be seen until English Vinglish happened. After some strong performances in Life Of Pi and The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Adil is now a favourite amongst the new age directors.  © Twitter 4. Pankaj TripathiA man who performs with grace par excellence, he has had his fair share of struggle in the industry but at the age of 43, life has come full circle and itâs the beginning of a new innings for him.

4 Hair Care Tips That Men Can Follow To Get Salon-Like Hair During Self-Isolation

People everywhere are following the rules of staying indoors, self-quarantining and social distancing. There are ways in which you can make the most of this time by actually dipping your toes into something experimental. Take your hair for example, since it is a lockdown sort of a situation where the whole world is operating virtually, have you wondered what will happen to your hair if you cannot visit your salon, any time sooner? Even though the spread of coronavirus is rapid, the same won't be the case if you are in self-quarantine. While you are at it, you can actually treat your hair with some great nourishment at home. Here's how you can do so. 1. Use An Egg Conditioner © iStock What this means is that you should not just use your hair shampoo but also get a hair conditioner, filled with proteins and essential minerals, as it helps strengthen your hair follicles. All this while, the travelling actually deteriorates the hair quality but with conditioning, the ingredients in it will penetrate deep into your scalp, making your hair follicles stronger than ever. Try it out.
2. Don't Shampoo Every Day © iStock Now that you are self-quarantining, all your procrastination to not shower will pay off. How, you ask? Not taking head baths every day is actually beneficial for your hair. Washing your hair daily can dry your hair and also strip off your hair's natural oils. Hence, it is advised that you don't shampoo your hair as often as you do right now.
3. The Good Old Champi Days © iStock Sorry, but shampoo and conditioner will not be enough. Ask your mother for coconut oil, add some curry leaves to it and heat it on medium flame. This oil, when you massage it on your scalp, will leave your hair follicles hydrated and nourished. Moreover, it instantly makes your hair look thicker, believe it or not. 
4. Hair Spa © iStock Now that you cannot go to salons and need to treat your hair at home because God knows where the virus is residing, start with hair spa at home. To do so, oil your hair first and let it stay for 20 minutes. Then, take a towel and dip it in hot water. Now, wrap it around your hair. The steam helps penetrate the oil deep inside your scalp. 
The next step is to wash your hair like how you would do it regularly. Use a conditioner post this step. Wash off your hair, step out and apply a mask made of two eggs and two spoons of coconut oil. Don't forget to massage your follicles when you apply this mask. Wash off after half an hour. Do this once a week, till the time you can't visit your salon!

From Celebs To 'Aam Janta', India Stands United In Paying Tribute To Our Unsung Heroes

Today was a day like no other. Narendra Modi in his speech had announced that March 22, 2020 is going to be Janta Curfew, wherein people won't step out of their house the entire day. However, at 5 pm, to respect people who are risking their lives amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has taken over the world, people are supposed to step out in their balconies and clap and even use their kitchen utensils to ring in unison as a mark of respect.  Around 4.55 pm, people had already started clapping and ringing bells in their balconies, and as the minutes passed the ringing sound exponentially increased. While the street dogs got scared after a relatively peaceful day sans human interaction, people were blasting ringing music on their Marshall speakers. Some people were recording this strange affair and put it up online. The hashtag #5baje5minute is going to be trending for a while now. Here are some reactions online and how celebrities participated today. 1. Here are the residents in Ahmedabad.Here's Ahmedabad residents thanking all our health workers & everyone out their for all the efforts!
