#HeatWaves are soon to become the new normal for #Mumbai.

#HeatStress happens when the body heats up excessively leading to dehydration, dizziness, fatigue, etc.
#HeatWaves in #Mumbai has led to an uptick in:
heat-related illnesses & deaths
power outages
crop failure
drinking water shortages
risk to wildlife
Global evidence demonstrates clear causal links b/w heatwave intensity & #ClimateChange

As per @rocksea, data for 70 years shows that “the number of heatwaves is directly in response to #GlobalWarming.”

"I remember the first day of my job. A group of 15 people came to our restaurant. I served them & earned their appreciation. I have learned many languages too. Apart from Marathi, I know Gujarati, Hindi, English & Nepali. This is the beauty of working in this industry. #IWD2022 Image
Nandini's professional journey began from Bhavnagar in #Gujarat & after working in #Nagpur & #Rajkot, she is currently working as Food and Beverage Manager at #Ahmedabad. Originally from #Yavatmal, #Maharashtra, she oversees operations at two properties in the city. #Breakthebias
She chose Pratham's #hospitality course at Ralegaon as a career option against her parents' wishes. "My parents were not ready. But I wanted to gain experience, work in different cities and see the outside world. And I am happy where I am", she says. #InternationalWomensDay2022

It was a Hindu-Muslim love story that leapt out of the flames of the #GujaratRiots of 2002 in #Ahmedabad's Naroda Patiya. It then went through the usual tortuous turns, so typically Indian, and the next two years saw the couple fight tough battles and go through waves of pain.
2. The police in Ahmedabad had turned matters worse for the lovelorn couple. @rajkamaljha
3. Even as the Muslim girl was illegally held at a home for the destitute despite turning 18, the authorities and police in #Ahmedabad had remained undecided about who should start her release procedure. #Gujarat #GujaratRiots #2002riots

27-02-2002: It broke out like an epidemic of viral flu. We may have been through several such epidemics, but nothing prepares us for the slaughter of men, women, children and even domestic animals. Never forget that the history of the human race is cruel. Watch this space...
I spent seven years (1998-2005) working as #Gujarat correspondent of @TheWeekLive. The pieces I'm posting here were written mostly in 2002 and chronicle the sequential turn of events, as I witnessed them that fateful year, beginning from where it all begun…
The above was an exclusive cover story for The Week's July 7 2002 issue. Took about three months to piece together the jigsaw puzzle that was #Godhra investigations at that point amid the mayhem and blood letting all around. I wrote about it all much later

The 7-Day Moving Growth Rate
-#Mumbai: < 2% for over 4 weeks, city ready phase 4?

-#Delhi & #Ahmedabad: <2% for 2 weeks.Phase 2 or 3?

-#Bengaluru, #Chennai & #Kolkata: little over 2% Phase 1?

Phases 1-4:

Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is increasing.
CFR= # Deaths / # Positive cases
- ↑ in numerator: Poor detection and treatment --> higher deaths
- Low Denominator ↓: Under-reporting of COVID Cases due to poor testing.

Higher the CFR in the city, poorer the TTT strategy.

The review of positive Cases, active Cases, and death moving growth rate in juxtaposition will give wholistic view on the situation.
#Bengaluru & #Delhi have some work to do.

Defendants claim that BAPS is innocent, & Cunha Construction middleman, an American company is the one who went rogue.
Several among us have been to BAPS #Atlanta, #Houston, #Chicago, besides #New Jersey sites. REALITY CHECK from the ground - a thread
CHRONOLOGY -1 Offer of employment in #Rajasthan, 2. Workers made to sign papers at BAPS #Ahmedabad office 3. Confinement at US construction sites, 4 rules over work conditions. In all of this workers interface is with BAPS representatives, never heard of #Cunha
Blaming the #middleman is the oldest trick of trade. Powerful industries get away by dumping blame on the smaller fish. So it is important that we say together #BAPSnotmiddleman

"Each day, the government reports more than 300,000 new infections, a world record, & #India is now seeing more new infections than any other country by far, almost half of all new cases in a global surge."… #CovidIndia
1. "Millions of people refuse to even step outside — their fear of catching the virus is that extreme. Accounts from around the country tell of the sick being left to gasp for air as they wait at chaotic hospitals that are running out of lifesaving oxygen."
2. "The sudden surge in recent weeks, with an insidious newer variant possibly playing a role, is casting increasing doubt on India’s official Covid19 death toll of nearly 200,000, with more than 2,000 people dying every day."

In light of the ongoing #COVID19 crisis in India, Watch the State @project_polis is putting out a thread of reported instances of #StateViolence in relation to the #COVIDSecondWave.

India is running out of oxygen, #Covid19 patients are dying–because the govt wasted time: It took 8 months to invite bids for over 150 #oxygen generation plants. 6 months later, most still aren’t up & running. @psychia90 & @VijaytaL report for @scroll_in.…

હોસ્પિટલોની રેમડેસિવિર માટેની વ્યથા પણ સમજવી જરૂરી છે. Thread.

સરકાર એવી જાહેરાતો કરે છે કે અમે હોસ્પિટલોને રેમડેસિવિર આપીએ છીએ પણ હકીકત અલગ છે. એક હોસ્પિટલ કે જેમાં મારા સગાં દાખલ છે તેમને ડોકટરે રેમડેસિવિર આપવાનું કીધું છે. હોસ્પિટલ તરફથી સરકારમાં ઈમેલ અને લિસ્ટ જાય છે. (1/n)
હોસ્પિટલની પાસે 150 દર્દીઓ છે, જેમાંથી લગભગ સોએક લોકોને એની જરૂર હોય છે પણ સરકાર કેટલાં ઇન્જેક્શન આપે છે? માત્ર 27. આજના 27, ગઇકાલે 40 આપેલા, પરમદિવસે 57 આપેલા. પછી છેલ્લી ઘડીએ હોસ્પિટલ દર્દીના સગાંને ફોન કરે કે અમારાથી વ્યવસ્થા થઈ નથી તમે દવા લઈ આવો. (2/n)
ત્યારે લાઈન ના લાગે, કાળા બજાર ના થાય તો શું થાય? સરકારની પેનલના ડોકટરો ભલે કહેતાં હોય કે રેમડેસિવિરથી ફાયદો થતો નથી વગેરે વગેરે પણ દર્દીના સગાં નજર સામે પરિસ્થિતિમાં સુધારો થતાં જુએ છે એનું શું? (3/n)
