The coronavirus pandemic has not only claimed thousands of lives, but has also given rise of one of the harrowing issues, and that’s unemployment. During the lockdown, we had come across a story of a jeweller in Rajasthan who had turned into a vegetable vendor to support his family. Recently, a chef, who has worked in cruise ships and 7-star hotels has set up his own biryani stall in Dadar, Mumbai after losing his job. Akshay Parkar had served as a chef in top-notch hotels like Taj Sats Hotel, Mumbai and was engaged for almost eight years in an international cruise. Like many others, he too bore the brunt of lockdown and ended up losing his job. But instead of losing hope, he came up with his very own biryani stall in front of Dadar’s Shivaji Mandir.
