Critiquing constructively with a hope
Highlighting natural & human-induced challenges, & related problems of a region like North #Bihar, linking them with critical #drinkingwater & #sanitation schemes is with the intent of sustenance
indianexpress.com/article/india/…
Moving from a rural piped-water coverage of 1.84% households (hhs) to 86.96% hhs in 2 years is DEFINITELY an accomplishment of the Govt. of Bihar. THEREFORE, must be TOLD, CELEBRATED, ITERATED all across.

However, should we NOT sensitively reflect for the sake of the future?
Big numbers convey a message of positivity,faith,advancement, AND importantly of hope&security, far more than mere 'pipe' & 'water'. The scheme's influence is beyond our imagination. Hence, we must visualize the impact when the scheme falls short due to reasons known & unknown.

Benford's Law is very popular in catching up the wrongdoings in the numbers or finding the anomalies in the numbers.

Many developed countries used Benford's Law to find data fudging in Taxes, social media fake profile detection, finding digital frauds etc.

(1/n)

#BenfordLaw
But did anyone try to run Benford's Law on the #Covid19 numbers of Indian States ?

I am not sure, but I tried to put these numbers together which i have collected online from various open-source sources. These are the combined numbers of 1st and 2nd wave.

(2/n)

#BenfordLaw
I am not claiming if these numbers are real, because I have collected these numbers form open sources over internet.
Also, I am not claiming if #BenfordLaw is most accurate in finding the fraud.

I am just sharing the outcome of Benford's law.

Over 75 % parents of children enrolled in govt schools said the absence of internet connectivity, inability to afford data connections & slow internet speed had created hurdles in #onlinelearning. Image
80 % teachers in these five states had received no orientation training for conducting online classes, with Bihar leading the chart where only 5 % teachers received training for delivering #digitaleducation. Image

ASIA'S BIGGEST ROBBERY ??? in INDIA

In Current #Bihar ????? 🙄

Are your mad ????? 🤣

Where the financial capital of India ? MUMBAI !!! Then ? 😅

📌 Thread #BettiahRaj
सन् 1990 दशहरा का दिन, जवाहरात खाना के आस पास दशहरा मेला के लिया लगे लाउड स्पीकर ।

दूसरे दिन करते दशहरा क्यूं ?
बिलकुल क्योंकि इतना धन चोरी करने में पूरे 10दिन लगे । 2 फीट की कंक्रीट, फिर 1 फीट की लोहे की चादर को काट कर ऊपर छत से गए थे चोर, जिनका कोई आता पता नही । Image
कितना मूल्य की चोरी हुई ?

कोई पुख्ता आकलन मौजूद नहीं ,अगर जितना बचा गया और जैसे आम लोग कहते है उसे ये पता लगता है की करीब 300- 500 करोड़ की वास्तु चोरी हुई, आज 2021 के हिसाब से 2800-3500 करोड़ का मूल्य बनाता है वो

ना जाने कितने हीरे से भरे ड्रम, सोना के सिक्के से भरे बक्शे । ImageImage

#Vaccination reality check: Yesterday marked the highest number of jabs in a single day in India. thehindu.com/news/national/… But as this shows, the peak seems artificial: scroll.in/article/998156…. Remains to be seen if supply constraints have been eased to maintain this pace. (1/n)
The pace of vaccination has definitely picked up but there are miles to go before targets are reached. Here is what, that remains to be done. (2/n) @the_hindu #Datapoint by @i_sumantsen and @nihalani_jasmin
Here's where we stand in terms of the estimated % of population that has been vaccinated so far, countrywide, and age-group wise. Only 3.7% of all Indians have been fully vaccinated & 17.2% have got atleast 1 dose (3/n) (See this tracker live on thehindu.com)

Thread.

1/ An article from @TheEconomist claiming that India's true #covid19 mortality maybe 5-7 times than the reported numbers has really irked GoI so much so @MoHFW_INDIA has now published a rebuttal that is short on substance but abundant on rhetoric.
2/ After using words like "speculative", "misinformed", "unsound" etc. to describe the article, the rebuttal interestingly says "there is no peer-reviewed scientific data available" for some studies used in that report.

I'm glad GoI takes scientific peer review seriously.
3/ Then why has it made claims on the safety & effectiveness of Covaxin without backing up with peer-reviewed scientific data?

What was the peer-reviewed scientific data based on which #Coronil got Ayush Ministry certification?

Thi list is actually long. So, I'll stop.

1/n: My uncle(mausa ji) died on 4 May in #IBSmriti Hospital while getting treatment for #Covid19 at #Darbhanga due to their sheer #negligience
2/n: He was admitted on 3 May when the SpO2 level fell in the 70s range. On oxygen cylinder support, it gradually increased to 91. #CTScan showed an infection score of 16/25 which the doctor said was critical but curable.
3/n: My cousin brother(his son) and mausi (his wife) were then asked to leave as there were no attendants allowed in the COVID ward. Mausa Ji was given a phone and then both of them left but kept checking on him throughout the day and night by visiting the hospital frequently.

ओ भारत की भूमि वन्दिनी! ओ जंजीरोंवाली!
तेरी ही क्या कुक्षि फाड़ कर जन्मी थी वैशाली?

वैशाली! इतिहास-पृष्ठ पर अंकन अंगारों का,
वैशाली! अतीत गह्वर में गुंजन तलवारों का।

#thevaishalidialogues #vaishali #bihar #lordbuddha #lordmahavira #buddhism #jainism #dhamma #discourse #discuss
वैशाली! जन का प्रतिपालक, गण का आदि विधाता,
जिसे ढूँढता देश आज उस प्रजातंत्र की माता।

रुको, एक क्षण पथिक! यहाँ मिट्टी को शीश नवाओ,
राजसिद्धियों की समाधि पर फूल चढ़ाते जाओ।

डूबा है दिनमान, इसी खॅंडहर में डूबी राका,
छिपी हुई है यहीं कहीं धूलों में राजपताका।
ढूँढो उसे, जगाओ उनको जिनकी ध्वजा गिरी है;
जिनके सो जाने से सिर पर काली घटा घिरी है।

कहो, जगाती है उनको वन्दिनी बेड़ियोंवाली,
नहीं उठे वे तो न बसेगी किसी तरह वैशाली।

फिर आते जागरण-गीत टकरा अतीत-गह्वर से,
उठती है आवाज एक वैशाली के खॅंडहर से।

The Vaishali Dialogues is an initiative by the youths of Vaishali to bring back its glory and make the golden historic hymns echo to this world.

#thevaishalidialogues #vaishali #bihar #lordbuddha #lordmahavira #buddhism #jainism #dhamma #discourse #discussion #dialogues
Vaishali, situated in Vaishali district in Bihar, is believed to be the world’s first republic and is currently an archaeological site in India. Vaishali derives its name from son of Ikshwaku queen Alambusha, King Vishala, whose heroic deeds find a reference in the Mahabharata.
Various references to Vaishali can be traced in texts of both Jainism and Buddhism. Vaishali was established in 6th century BCE as a republic, i.e., before the birth of Gautam Buddha, thereby making it the world’s first republic.

Spare 2 mins :- A thread 👇

People who think #BJP lost it badly & trolling, let me tell you. In all 4 states & #Puducherry, BJP only gained vote share, seats & victory as well. On a personal front, I am happy with the performance, but what makes me sad is only for #Bengal (1/8)
Not coz we lost it, but for the khela that's started & will happen in next 5 yrs. The life of karyakartas & #Hindus is at huge risk & will be lost, which already begun. Shudder to think what they are going through. All this in Hindustan. Hindus now forced to leave #Bengal (2/8)
Almost all #TMC guys celebrating the win, live in other states for their livelihood. Imagine what the goons would do across country where #BJP is not in power. Hindus will never unite. It will be foolish to think & speak on their unity. #Congress & others just want BJP not to win

Back to reporting after ~4 weeks of battling the virus, being a caregiver to 3 in family, finding hospital beds, labs, struggling to seek info about hospitalised parents. All this in a small town. Was lucky though to have eventually found resources & recover. Many are not #Thread
The chaos, health infra in JSR, my hometown & a fairly developed city, has given a 1st hand experience of healthcare in small towns. Doesn't end at lack of infra. Sheer negligence & under-preparedness both by govt & ppl is beyond belief. Story same across tier 2&3 towns in India
#Covidcrisis has fiercely moved from big cities to small towns - those having limited experience of 1st wave, were complacent & poorly educated about the outbreak. Health infra broken, unable to take the load, processes are slowing. 2020 was just taken as a one-off historic event

Based on S curve analysis of Indian cases, I conclude, mutations are reason for explosive 2nd wave. I model spread by dividing infections into 2 streams(original & mutations)=>The case spread curve is likely to flatten by 1st week of July at <22 mi cases. dravirmani.blogspot.com/2021/04/indias…
2/covid For S curve methodology and modeling framework developed by us, please see the @EgrowFoundation research paper, egrowfoundation.org/research/effec…
3/covid Please note that for the formal model of new/cumulated corona cases, I have used data on India from the Johns Hopkins University, Covid data set (rather than the ICMR data used in first half of the note on active cases), as this was the data used in earlier research.
