Good Morning! Or shall we say “शुभ प्रभात”?!

Now, that we are officially free to step out (of course with social distancing norms in mind), what are your plans for this weekend?

How Are You Doing Seth Meyers GIF by Late Night with Seth Meyers ...

Well, in case you have chosen to step out, as we did for a jog or to get your favorite cuppa from Starbucks, please ensure that you are well protected and sufficiently sanitized to keep unwanted viruses at bay. As Vikas Bagaria of Pee Safe noted “Hygiene is the new security”. And we couldn’t agree more.

Speaking of Vikas Bagaria, we just dropped a new episode of Founder Thesis podcast featuring Vikas, where he talks about his journey from being an aspiring athlete to becoming a serial entrepreneur. Listen to his amazing story of triumphs and tribulations here. Or you can also look for it on your favorite audio platform here.

Don’t forget to share your feedback on the episode & subscribe to the show. We look forward to hearing back from you…
