#Volunteering When people wanted me to describe in a phrase - what can prevent Volunteering Fatigue (unexpected extension of time devoted to a passionate cause, as against paid volunteering) - It is Disapassionate Attachment. Everything other factor is subordinated to the Cause
#Volunteering More often than not, especially in the current round of Volunteering, Young, energetic and passionate volunteers never needed any motivation as they are already inspired and self-fired. But those get fatigued are those who want to deliver perfection and fail
#Volunteering Whenever these inspirational gems talk to me about how to avoid failure in the task - I only request them not to aim for delivering perfect service, but aim to deliver acceptable service. Because what the beneficiary needs simply is unpredictable (COVID19 context)

In this raging pandemic, there are faceless people who are working against time but not classified as #CoronaWarriors.

@GaonConnection launches a new series 'A Day in the Life of...' in which you can meet such people.

Here's Sushma Devi, a woman पंडा…
Sushma was only 11yo when she was married off to 15yo Santosh, whose traditional occupation was 'panda', a priest who performs the last rites prayers. By the age of 26, Sushma was widowed.

She became a पंडा, something restricted only to men

Read. Watch.
"Hopelessness, helplessness and poverty taught me to be strong."

Watch the story of Sushma Devi, who gathered up the courage to work in a traditionally male-dominated bastion and became a woman ‘पंडा‘. @UNFPAIndia @MinistryWCD @Laadli_PF @FeminismInIndia

Clarification on Covid19 Insurance Cover for PSBs Bankers

There are a lot of confusion and misinformation floating on SM about Bankers Insurance Cover for Covid19

Hope this thread will clear the confusion around this topic. Kindly read. 1/n

@suchetadalal @abhasinghlawyer
Let’s Start with Covid19 Insurance Cover:

➡️ All PSBs including most of the RRBs have provided life insurance Cover of Rs. 20lacs

➡️Now the question remains,is it enough?

🅰️No. Any amount can not compensate the loss of a life,but to provide financial Security to the family 2/n
Insurance cover for Bankers must be at par with other #CoronaWarriors i.e. 50lacs.

➡️ What is the possible ways to provide 50lacs Cover?

🅰️ All Banks may follow @bankofbaroda on this. BOB have provided additional ex gratia amt of 30lacs over and above Insurance of 20lacs.3/n

His name is Judhisthira Sahoo, aged about 75 years, blind since birth, and disowned by his brothers when their parents passed away. Then he had joined a blind school to teach students and make some money to survive. [Source: @Bapun] #CoronaWarriors
Today he went to a @TheOfficialSBI branch & asked the cashier to help him to withdraw 1,01,000 rupees from his account. Once the cashier handed over the amount, he asked someone to take him to the manager's cabin.
His words to the manager were, 'When I was disowned by brothers, some nice people in the society ensured my survival. And now they all are in problem due to this pandemic. Please send this One lac and One thousand rupees to CM's #reliefpackage.'

On a tweet-spree, sharing my 2-cent thoughts after 2 months of #COVID duty work:
🔸️ Different patient, different body response - management algorithm can guide you, but individualized care is a must
🔸️Organ systems works hand-in-hand; Nutrition is just as important as ventilation, circulation, etc
🔸️Management is evolving (in a matter of hours); what you know now might not be applicable tomorrow. Keep yourself updated.
🔸️Giving medications just so we have something to give, can be worse than not giving anything at all. #EvidenceBasedMedicine
🔸️Team work goes a long way - ask HELP, be it clinical dilemna or handy ward work. After all, We're on the same boat🛶

1/ #Bengaluru cousins are providing 400 litres of milk to underprivileged children daily amid lockdown
2/ "When we went to distribute the ration kits, we discovered that the young ones had nothing to eat. They really needed milk," says Zeeshan Javid of Bengaluru, who joined hands with his cousins Zufishan Pasha and Shehzar Sheriff to initiate 'Mission Milk'.
3/ Under this, volunteers distribute milk packets to underprivileged kids whose families cannot afford this vital nutrient. What started with just 60 litres of milk, has now evolved into a 400-litre a day operation.

7. The Home Exercise and Diet (HEAD) project helped participants improve their health parameters and lose inches from waist

8. Food tips for Police force & frontline #CoronaWarriors

9. And lastly, #lockdown has connected us back to our kitchens and we must not let that go.

So the narrative is not about the abject failure of the Maharashtra CM, but BJP trying take political mileage from that failure!

This is how our Media holds our politicians accountable.
Maharashtra has India's 9% population, but over 35% of total cases and 44% of active cases.

In fact it has more active cases than the next 7 states combined.

Monumental failure that is being totally ignored by Media. Image
From Doctors to Policemen, the epidemic is spreading and killing the #CoronaWarriors at an alarming rate.

When Modi announced a 14 hour #JantaCurfew, did he expect the whole of #coronavirus in india to die/vanish in 12 hours really? No
When Modi gave a 4 hour notice for nationwide #lockdown on 24th March by allowing elite to settle in their cosy homes, did he feel migrants would not be seen & heard at all? No.
When Modi announced #lockdownindia & invoked Mythology (Mahabharat war of 18 days) to claim that fighting against Coronavirus will take 21 days, did he believe himself? No.

Was it actually insensitivity? Three among these are approved by @UPGovt for non #COVIDー19 cases. This is more because of the scare of events that follow discovery of a +ve patient having crossed path in a pvt setup. Pvt sector should be encouraged, not scared in this crisis Image
Confusion described here visible in reaction of administration to discovery of a #COVIDー19 case in pvt hospital. The center may be sealed, all staff may be quarantined in a remote school without even water and clean toilets. Or there may be just sanitization. Confusion prevails Image
Unfortunately, @MoHFW_INDIA guidelines spread more as warning, less as help. I wish @PMOIndia ensures mathematical flow chart about SOP for pvt sector. Everyone should know the risk from his action, and how to manage it. Till then innocent lives might continue to be lost.

***Important News*** #GivingTuesday #GivingTuesdayNow #giving #givingback

Since no other group wants to take me up on my offer for free advertising. I am featuring:

**Harvest Hills Cares Calgary**

This group provides tailored help to individuals and families and seniors in need. They are known for their food hampers. None of the food that goes into the hampers is wasted by the families helped.
This is because the family provides a grocery list and then volunteers go shopping and get the items on the list to put into the tailored food hamper.

#Reviews on the use of #war metaphors for health workers amidst #coronaviruses & #CoViD19, explain why using #hashtags such as #CoronaSaviours and #CoronaWarriors can fuel the coexistent #infodemic, graver than the #pandemic itself!

@UN @deespeak @fayedsouza @iHrithik

"Of course, we all want to contain the virus, posthaste, and to treat as many as patients as we possibly can. But to do so under the banner of war implies the necessity of a heedless approach that leaves both doctors and patients open to an indefensible level of risk."
