1-Dear @narendramodi ji,

Updating some more inputs, we have gleaned from health policy researchers and first responders to the #CoronaCrisis all around the world.

We urge you to share it with your team to inform the forward strategy on #Coronaindia

@PMOIndia @drharshvardhan
2-As we begin April – almost everyone agrees that it will be a hard month as the #CoronaPandemic spreads across the globe.

The epidemic may calm down by July and August, but #ChinaVirus is likely to be seasonal and could return with a vengeance in the fall.

3-The next challenge then becomes - How do we crack the current outbreak, develop a plan to return to normal life, and ensure that the #wuhanvirus never poses the same threat again?

Day 6, Book 6

Every one of us is losing something precious to us. Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back again. That’s part of what it means to be alive -- Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami #21days21books #21daylockdown
Day 7, Book 7

And the air was full of Thoughts and Things to Say. But at times like these, only the Small Things are ever said. Big Things lurk unsaid inside.

Much of what was said did not matter, and that much of what mattered could not be said.

First Sunday after #JantaCurfew . Looks like a country of 130 Crores has responded to the #21daysLockdown call by @narendramodi. Except for few issues around #migrantworkers District administrations are managing well. A matter which will need 100s of research papers post crisis.
Every single unit of administration rising upto the challenge . State govts establishing some of the best practices . India will be different with so many capacity building happening at every level .
Our curve is only moderately sharp because of irresponsibility of some . System is containing that too . Social groups lending a helping hand . With a caring & acting PM , CMs at their best , system tuned up , society responding positively India will come out unscathed .

108 is considered a sacred and auspicious number in Hinduism. Ever wondered why? According to Vedas and Upanishads, number of facts and figures had been discovered thousands of years back that are scientifically surprising.
It is the representation of our existence and our universe as a whole. This is properly exemplified when we try to understand the basis behind each number. ‘One' signifies God’s consciousness, ‘zero’ signifies null or void, while ‘eight’ is the embodiment of infinity.
Thus, the number 108 is everything that we are about. It connects the ancient and the modern. In Vedic cosmology (and modern science), it is believed that the average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters.

1: India is under a national lockdown to battle the #Covid19 pandemic for the next 3 weeks. The Government of India and various state governments must ensure the lockdown doesn't aggravate people's hardships, by guaranteeing the operation of essential services.

2: Despite Govt of India' clarification that essential services will continue to operate during the lockdown, news reports across India show that police are forcibly shutting down grocery shops, vegetable and fruit vendors and meat shops. This harassment must stop immediately.
3: The lockdown must not be enforced through brute force by the police. Excessive & arbitrary use of force by the police only stands to worsen the existing fear & anxiety of the public. Govt of India must reach out to people & inform them about the pandemic at a community level.

MEMORIZE the number I mention against every Rashi. Daily revise sequence.

Circular Zodiac surrounding Earth measures 360 degree, is divided into 12 equal parts, each part of 30° called a Sign (राशि/Rashi).

Since 360°/30 = 12, there are 12 Rashi (राशि)/Signs.
