The novel coronavirus or COVID-19 has been sweeping across the world, disrupting businesses and life in general. While the nations of the world take every possible measure they can to keep this dreaded pandemic at bay, India is also making an all-out effort by imposing a 21-day lockout and practicing social distancing. The yeoman services rendered by our healthcare personnel and various arms of government and non-governmental agencies help carry out the fight to ‘break the chain’ and restore normalcy in our lives at the earliest. In order to be part of the process of rebuilding the economy in light of the COVID-19 crisis, India’s premier warship builder Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Limited (GRSE) has stepped in by contributing Rs 1 crore to the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES) Fund from its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund, said an official of the GRSE on Friday.
