What has changed in Mumbai today ? Can't really find a answer on the net. Are the hardware shops at lamington road opening today (esp Prime) ? I need some stuff.
No local trains or BEST buses, right ?

Prime not answering calls, so not open I think. Employees cannot make it to the shop I guess.

Another storm is coming...doctors working in large corporate hospitals may all go into strike due to pay cut ( even direct covid related doctors are facing 40-50 percent pay cuts, which is simply unacceptable)
These hospitals work on huge profit margins for years, yet they are not paying up the pros who are risking their lives and their families'
Most of them worked everyday during the lockdown.

What's the point in still dividing zones? It's basically containment and other areas. Finally the shitheads understood ( they day after the highest new cases!!)

Prime would start with deliveries post 31st May. It seems couriers are not allowed to open.

Surprisingly, Prime website mentions they will start deliveries after 31st May as couriers were not allowed. But all's good .

We would like to update that we have started operating with 10% of the staff and we have a long pipeline for orders to dispatch.
Please rest assured that we will dispatch products one by one.You will get SMS from our side regarding shipment.
PrimeABGB. Today.

EDIT : Can someone comment on how well items are packed by Prime, for shipping that is. Like if I order a PSU will it be shipped with proper 'protection' ?

Dont worry they deal only into IT and not mixed stuff like jack of all trades masters on none nonsense so they know for sure how well to pack IT stuff. Be worry free!

Doctors needs to understand that when they work at a hospital, they are workers, laborers, and do not have any say & share in the profits. Just like any other guy working in a firm: "manager", engineer, lawyer, peon, housekeeping staff.
IF they are not happy with pay cut they are free to join some other company (hospital).

This is how capitalism works (the same capitalism that has made doctor's, especially specialist, pay so lucrative).

Docs should thanks their lucky stars that they are not into a profession that is seasonal/cyclic and is more or less recession proof. Imagine the plight of other workers who don't have any choice because there is no demand for their work.
