NEW DELHI: Shripad Nadkarni, a former marketing head at Coca-Cola India, has teamed up with three other former executives of major consumer goods firms to set up food startup Fingerlix which will sell fresh, ready-to-cook foods such as curries, batter and mixes. “The ready-to-cook sector is a white space we’re hoping to address; we are addressing convenience and freshness with the brand,” said Nadkarni, director at Maverix Platforms, promoter of Fingerlix.

Advances in freezing fertilised eggs have also made it more likely that a thawed embryo will be suitable for transfer to another woman’s womb. … [Read more...] about ‘She said she’d be babysitting our embryo’: what’s it like to carry a child for a friend?
Even as new symptoms revealed themselves, Dad managed to maintain his poise. He was a doctor and, I suppose, his training was useful.
