This extensive lockdown has surely brought the spotlight on various locals who have been working relentlessly to curb the miseries of the migrants in the city. Joining the bandwagon of local heroes in Lucknow, is another team who has been serving the society since the 29th of March.
Since 2014, MOST has been functional in Lucknow and is run by city boy Hemant Thakur. It was founded with a vision to teach children hailing from underprivileged sections of the society. So when the country-wide lockdown was imposed, many of those pupils studying here reported that their parents who were mostly daily wagers, had lost sources of income and have been facing issues of various kinds. To minimise this crisis, Hemant took it upon his shoulders to reach out to people in need and his story has left us all inspired!
The pandemic has hit us hard and we're all struggling to make our ways through it but the underprivileged in our society are the worst-hit section with bare minimum to no resources whatsoever. So to help these desolate souls on the streets, who are just trying to return home or are struggling to gain a foothold in this situation, Support Group LKO Covid-19 has been undertaking all the necessary efforts to make it easier for them.

Amid the oscillating threats and peaking cases of the coronavirus outbreak, the world as a whole has turned towards scientists, doctors, nurses and other such personnel who are no less than our ultimate messiah. From the concentrated community of science and technology, we have had several gems who've added to India's crown of glory and one such tech pro is Milind Raj.
Based in Lucknow, Milind has developed an 'anti-corona drone' prototype, also known as the 'sanitiser drone' which has the capabilities of carrying out a comprehensive sanitisation process.

We regularly come across news stories which absolutely break our hearts and all of that, usually makes us want to do something about it. Honestly, sometimes we do things at our own capacities to help someone out and more than often, we leave it be, quickly moving on to the next thing. But when the news of thousands of migrant labourers who were walking back home by crossing hundreds of kilometers, hit Azhar's ears, he knew that he had to do something about it ASAP! Based in Lucknow, Mohd. Azhar Hussain has been helping to curb the hunger of hundreds of such people and also animals in the city and within a few days, he has become an inspiration to all of us.
Food is often one of the most gratifying things, not just for the person who consumes it but for the chef as well. Of the many career options and avenues available today, food & beverages is undoubtedly one of the most thriving industry, yet, if you're looking for a career in food, the competition is sharper than the edge of a newly sharpened Chef's knife.
Fuel stations are such a basic stop for daily commuters, that no one really pays any detailed attention to it.
Along similar lines, we were queueing up at the HP petrol pump in Burlington Chauraha when our keen noses caught a whiff of a story- Women Empowerment Redefined!

Given that the youth today has embraced the party-culture as a way of life on weekends and sometimes on weekdays too, it's only natural that the music has to be nothing less than the best mood-maker. With colossal numbers of people frolicking to clubs and pubs every weekend, it's not difficult to point out the common factor calling us to the dance floor- the blaring music, of course.
