A short thread
In his interview with @manojladwa, (see link), India's Exernal Affairs Minister, @DrSJaishankar, when asked about the ongoing #SecondCOVIDWave crisis in India, acknowledged that it was a grave problem almost an "existential crisis". But then he tried..
to soften the impact on his NRI audience, he compared what India is going through to the second wave in Britain in 2020 late summer and autumn when the health services were swamped, "you've been through something similar, that is what India is going thru now"
This is not untrue, but grossly misleading. Yes Britain, at the height of the epidemic, was reporting 50k cases a day and 1,750 deaths. See chart 1. In population terms britain had far more cases and deaths (Chart 2) ImageImage

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.…

Every news bulletin is discussing the grim situation in India

Listening to @thewritesush on @bbcworldservice on the poor signalling by the government of India, by permitting large political rallies, the religious festival of #KumbhMela which led citizens to drop their guard. +
+ Meanwhile in Canada we are not doing too well either, as @hayleywoodin reports we are on a ban list for travel to the USA. We Canadians were also commenting adversely on the situation in the USA last year, we are not looking good now, especially in Vancouver, Toronto & Quebec.
The last few minutes of the show was interesting, I learned about an app called @TheTileApp which helps to locate misplaced keys, but sadly dies in six months. But as @Bizrobertson suggested to @thewritesush she could put one on her husband! I think I will put one on my wife!

#TablighiJamaat தான் கொரோனோ பரவ முக்கிய காரணம் என கூறி அன்றைக்கு மத சாயம் பூசியவர்கள் அனைவரும் இன்னைக்கு உரிய பாதுகாப்பு இன்றி #KumbhMela நடந்து கொண்டு இருக்கு,சத்தமே இல்லை! மறதி தேசிய வியாதி ஒரு மதத்தை குறி வச்சி என்ன என்ன திருவாசகங்களை சொன்னார்கள் என கீழே பதிவு செய்கிறேன் :
#TablighiJamaat சென்று வந்தவர்கள் மனித வெடிகுண்டு போல?

@sganesh181 I had earlier posted that #KumbhMela should have been closed for common people & only few sadhus of each Akhada should have been allowed with #COVID protocol.

But I did more research after reading many posts & articles blaming kumbh for current crisis.…
@sganesh181 First of all most pictures being shared are fake. People are posting old Kumbh pictures to exaggerate their claims about crowds in #MahaKumbh2021

See this for example…

Despite distorted malicious narratives of foreign funded liberals;
walking-rubbing shoulders with lakhs of people for days in Prayagraj, I witnessed the unchanged basic ethos & undeterred faith in #KumbhMela .

The Samudra Manthan & the struggle between Gods & Demons for Amrit signifies the struggle between knowledge - wisdom & ignorance,
when control over pancha gyanaendriya, pancha Karmendriyas is achieved, the Nectar begins to emanate in the human body called Ghat/ Kumbh. #KumbhMela
सितासिते सरिते यत्र सङ्गते तत्राप्लुतासो दिवमुत्पतन्ति ।ये वै तन्वं विसृजन्ति धीरास्ते जनासो अमृतत्वं भजन्ते॥-Rigveda, Khilsukta

He who bathes at the sangam attains Swarga, the courageous individuals who sacrifice their body in the #TriveniSangam attain moksha.

This post set us thinking.
#kumbh2019 #प्रयागकुंभ #Prayagraj is much more than these.
Made famous as 'siberian birds' - these are actually named Palla's Gull. They are NOT from Siberia @PrayagrajKumbh @uptourismgov @incredibleindia.
Now we are starting a new series - #kumbhbirds
This is one of the rarest birds of North India and it is a very splendid sight to see. This is found only near river banks.
Spotted at #Kumbh2019 #KumbhMela2019 #kumbhbirds
@ornithology @upecotourism @BirdWatchingMag @BirdWatchDaily @uptourismgov @PrayagrajKumbh @incredibleindia
Found mainly in the jungles some of these are often found near cities and often unnoticed by people. They are also called 'seven sisters' as they are often found in groups of seven.
