Hyderabad: Physical distancing is one of the key factors in containing the ongoing pandemic that is ravaging our lives. However, that doesn’t mean we distance ourselves from helping out those in need and forget being kind to one another. And that is exactly what Randhir Reddy and his friends believe in.
It all started when Randhir, a biker and an employee at Bosch India from the city, was meeting his friend near NIMS. He overheard a conversation between a mother and son, and it broke his heart. While the five-year-old was requesting his mother for food as he was starving, she was in a helpless situation as she was tending to her husband who was in the Covid ward. The family had come to Hyderabad for Covid treatment and it was becoming impossible for them to pay hospital bills and make ends meet.
So Randhir immediately got them some food and decided to help several others who are going through a similar crisis on a daily basis.
“I started feeding close to 130 people with lunch and dinner every day. I took help from fellow bikers from The Bike & Touring Company. Aravind Reddy Kommidi and Vijay Kumar have been my biggest supporters apart from Rohit Singh, Srikanth Reddy Kolan and Vijit Reddy. We are all pooling money from our biking group, and delivering food to patients in hospitals as well as those in home quarantine through biking volunteers,” shares Randhir, who has been getting food requests from WhatsApp, social media accounts and Robin Hood Army.
Their menu includes both veg and non-veg options. From dal, soya curry, egg, plain rice and pulao to chicken fry and biryani, the group is also making sure that the food they cook from their kitchen in Neredmet is delicious. “A lot of Covid positive people tell me that they have loss of taste and that they don’t feel like eating just healthy food, so the least I can do is to try providing them with tastier options,” adds Randhir.
