Cooke Town resident, Andrea Cerilo , has been cooking single-handedly to send food to the sick and elderly, while also looking after her own family It’s around 4.30 pm and Andrea Cerilo’s voice, laced with laughter, travels down the phone. There’s no sign that Cerilo has cooked a full lunch for 15 families and sent it off to various destinations in Bengaluru. From Cooke Town, her neighbourhood, to Richmond Town and Banaswadi. “I’m just about to start prep for the night deliveries,” she says, and then adds that because of the lockdown she has no help. And she has to feed her own family of 5 children and her husband. Anyone else would just go back to bed if they had such a formidable to-do list but not Cerilo, who runs a catering business. “I mostly cater to old people who live alone and now to people who are recovering from covid and can’t cook.

Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has appeared in public for the first time since going on hunger strike - via video link during a court hearing. The 44-year-old Russian opposition leader , who told the court he looks like a "creepy skeleton", was arrested earlier this year and is serving a two-and-a-half-year sentence in a prison some 60 miles (97km) east of Moscow. He is appealing his fine for slandering a 94-year-old Second World War veteran. He allegedly called the veteran and other people featured in a pro-Kremlin video last year "corrupt stooges", "people without conscience" and "traitors".

Kindly Share This Story: By Ikechukwu Amaechi OTUNBA Mike Adeniyi Ishola Adenuga Jr. is 68 years old today. Born on April 29, 1953 in the ancient city of Ibadan, Adenuga has indeed come a long way and ideally, the red carpet is in order. For a man who has achieved so much, pomp and pageantry, an elaborate ceremonial splendour, won’t be out of place. But that is unlikely. Instead, the day will most likely be marked in solitary quietude. Adenuga loves his quiet moments, even as he, paradoxically, lives for others. Believing in the immortal words of Albert Einstein, the German-born theoretical physicist, that only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile, Adenuga refuses to bask in public adulation. Nothing at his birth indicated he will be a phenomenal business success. Though his parents, Chief Mike Adenuga Snr., a teacher, and Madam Oyindamola Adenuga, a successful trader and Yeyeoba of Ijebuland, were successful in their own right, he didn’t … [Read more...] about Mike Adenuga: Capitalist with a heart of gold [opinion]
