Overly challenging times are going on in India at the moment due to the second wave of the dangerous Coronavirus.

I am ready to share my advice with anyone who needs it,” she said.
Naseha Sameen is from Cuttack, Odhisa and now settled in Hyderabad. She works in the domain of workforce management and analytics. However, she knew that she needed to tell a few stories.

Abhinav Shukla, the founder of CollabAdda, joined the session to share his views about the situation. A well-known figure in the marketing industry, Abhinav believes just like other bad times, this too shall pass. “I work with many brands and my work keeps me occupied at most times, but I do take out time to help the people who need it.
