what indian economy witnessing amid of the “corona kal”

Announcing this Pandemic corona Kal is little bit sarcastic because this must not stand for a long time. Over the last several months it had produced devastating results that shook this entire civilization of modern mankind deeply and profoundly. What it had perpetrate over the several months is far more than that could be happen in a ‘Kal’. Lakhs of people across the globe had loose their lives without committing any crime a direct verdict which did not even perform any trial or legal practices directly without any hearing clutched many lives brings a world of sufferings to their families nation and to the entire world.

Amid of this ongoing pandemic the Indian economy is facing Repercussion:

With the ongoing grief of many loosing lives and the infected ones and unimagined and numerous sufferings to their families there are also families those who are suffering live and terrible moments emerged because of ‘Hopes of returning home’, Extreme and harsh survival with the long routes to their homes, There is reverse migration swinging across the country on big level, poor living conditions continuous loose of livelihood without any social security and much more we are unable to create jobs hence employment in hands which had created a trauma and a significant question “will Indian Economy be capable enough to harness the demographic dividend in terms of employment opportunities ?”and why this question is crucial because the trends and symptoms our economy is projecting are intimidating. As per the foreign brokerage the India’s GDP forecast for this financial year will shrink by Approximately 2%,even some analyst predicted it to be as much as 5%.RBI had also expected a downfall in GDP in FY21(2020-2021).and as per a report India will can undergo recession in third quarter of this fiscal we already were the victims of Demonitisation India was running void of cash in hands hence demand was law already and with emergence of this Pandemic we run sort of incomes there is loss in incomes there is very meagre Employment there is definite depression in demand. apart from it banks also facing serious challenges because of bad loan levels and growing debts, banks NBFC’s are performing poorly risk Alienation increased as balance sheets of firms households grown weak .India is under lockdown since 25 march all the manufacturing across the country is at standstill there is disruption in supply and demand chain industries output shrank at 16.7% there is reverse migration is happening which country never sees before as all the manufacturing units had been shut down the backbone of employment the MSME’s facing tough time. we had obtained fiscal Deficiet in FY20 4.6% but due to cutting edge declination in GDP contraction the brokerage had revised it up-to 6.3%.All these above facts and figures trying to put the Portrait of our economy which is facing the tough time. Results and repercussions will be more intimidating.

There is huge challenge before the government how they are going to harness the demographic dividend of India which is India’s strength which was injected in 1980 and expected to end up-to 2040. Every fervent young hand need a job need a skill in his hand so that with his aspirations he can discharge its duties for nation building. Indian youth needs jobs creation apart from agriculture or Non-Agriculture Jobs. India’s spirit its youth needs a work in his hand. And it leaves a with a question Will Indian Economy be Capable enough to Foster employment for youths ? can we Harness the demographic dividend the real energy of Nation the INDIA ?

Swiggy to shut down it’s independently working food delivery service-scootsy.

Bangalore-based food-tech unicorn, Swiggy plans to close its on-demand online food delivery service Scootsy, a Mumbai-based startup which it acquired in 2018, for an estimated value of Rs. 50 Crore, to expand its operations in the online food delivery segment.

Scootsy,  was permitted to function as an independent app, serving food from a curated list of brands (such as Masque, Nara Thai, Royal China, Trattoria),gourmet food stores, and  bakeries after the takeover in Mumbai.

Swiggy is one of the many big Indian brands that have been adversely affected by the Corona-virus pandemic.Food delivery business in India saw a 70% drop in food order volume, with just 25% of listed restaurants operational.

In the past month, Swiggy has concentrated on luxury ‘curated’ consumer food delivery and has been linking itself to premier hotel groups like ITC Hotels, Marriott, Hyatt, KA Hospitality and such similar brands—to raise its average order volume and size on its website as it aims to benefit further from high-ticket size orders.

Thus the major food startup is planning to fully merge Mumbai-based Scootsy, an already premier food delivery brand , on its own platform and will redirect Scootsy’s customers to the Swiggy app. With this it will also undertake the transitioning of Scootsy’s partners and delivery fleet onto the Swiggy platform.

“Swiggy has seen a increase in demand over the past few months for customized food choices from premium brands. In order to extend our reach to all discerning consumers across Mumbai, we will be transferring the services provided by Scootsy to Swiggy ‘s platforms in the near future. This will be the first big step in setting up the premium category for Swiggy,” said a Swiggy representative.

Recently, gourmet restaurants have slowly begun to tap food distribution services such as Swiggy to ensure continuity of business as the industry expects  changes in consumer behavior toward eateries.

It is my school’s policy that students and teachers use only copyright-free material. This makes sense hypothetically, but what does it actually mean? Where could this mysterious content be found?

After asking around, it became clear to me that copyright-free material was not understood by many other teachers as well. So how could we possibly teach and model finding such content for our students? Although it was part of my job to ensure students were only using copyright-free material, I knew very little myself about what can and cannot be used nevermind how to monitor this from my students.

However, teaching in a technology-focused school means the students use digital technology to create many of their projects. They take images, video clips, sound bites and more from the internet and to create their own products on a regular basis.

I decided to make it my mission to learn about copyright licensing alongside my students.

First, I compiled a list of websites with copyright-free material. I sent students to my Pinterest board of copyright-free resources.

However, my students thought Pinterest itself was all copyright-free material which could not be further from the truth. I witness numerous students searching for “copyright-free” content using the search bar of Pinterest!

I can see now why the students were confused.
So next, I modeled finding content using the Creative Commons website. This search engine links to various copyright-free sites. But students still struggled with the specific options on the different websites.
Luckily Creative Commons has a great resource to explain what each of the copyright permissions mean:

Reaching the Visual Learner: Software to Create Digital Posters or Infographics

Ever find yourself drawing incomprehensible doodles as you attempt to explain an idea to a student? I do all the time.

There is no doubt in my mind that I am a visual learner. I see this come out in my teaching, as I break down complicated ideas for my students in the same way I did to make sense of it for myself. Taking large amounts of text and synthesizing those ideas to create an aesthetically pleasing, symbol-saturated visual representation is something I truly enjoy doing.
