My take on Lockdown, season Special!

Govt of India took initial & great step with Announcement of Lockdown & Modiji left no stone unturned!
1st 14 days of Lockdown was a successful event like never before in 1.35 billion population!
However Single source failed India!
With single source being on Rampant, 2nd lockdown was announced but it was disturbed midway around 25th of April, which was a biggest mistake!
Continued & strict Lockdown would've really worked!

Sometimes under pressure decisions are biggest mistakes!
But the worst was awaiting
While other countries were already on the peak of it, India had just started

With 25000 cases in 85 days
& Another 25000 in 9 days
India had just arrived then!

But again on 3rd May, ease of restrictions took place with 3 zones in place citing economy crisis & Migrants

Senior Adv. Huzefa Ahmadi for petitioner(s):
"In several areas schools are holding classes via zoom. J&K students not getting access. On 16 march 2020 s 144 imposed after the outbreak of the #pandemic almost all over #JammuAndKashmir"
Justice Ramana to Ahmadi : "Facts & dates are not in dispute. Mr. Ahmadi, you highlight the issues"

Attorney General KK Venugopal for Centre: "It is the issue of violation of Fundamental Right to education that we are disputing"

Santosh Solanki, a ward assistant at the Naidu Infectious Diseases Hospital, Pune has been serving patients amidst the Covid pandemic. During the swine-flu outbreak as well, he was one of the many faceless staffers who worked from morning till late at night.
While doctors and nurses are often recognised for their work, seldom are ward assistants or orderlies given any credit. Yet, staffers like Solanki continue to serve the patients selflessly. Even Solanki’s mother was a cleaning staff at the hospital, so was his grandmother.
Solanki says, “There are times when we are treated badly by patients or their family members, but I have no regrets. Rich or poor, we are all humans. The disease doesn’t discriminate. We know that they are under tremendous stress. So, we always respond to all patients politely.”

- Tablighi, Dharavi super-spreaders key for rise
- TN, AP doubling every 2-3 days
- Central, South India = 70% of total cases
- MH, KL same till D20, MH rising, KL flattening

Mumbai: 400+ cases
Kasargod: ~150 cases
Indore, Pune, Chennai, Jaipur: ~100 cases
Thane: ~75 cases
Noida, Ahmadabad, Bengaluru, Kurnool, Kannur: ~50+ cases
India's death toll slope steeper than US at same stage⚠️

Things to note:
- Deaths reported only from hospitals. Many deaths occur whose cause being covid-19 is identified later.
- Watch for general trends. Focus on slopes, not specifics.

அறிவித்து மக்கள் பால்கனியில் கைத்தட்ட வேண்டும் என்று சொல்லப்பட்டது.மக்கள் வீதிகளில் இறங்கி செய்த கூத்து எல்லாம் நாட்டு மக்கள் பார்த்தார்கள்... அதன் பின்னர் பிரதமரே வேதனை தெரிவித்தார்... லாக்டவுனை எப்படி சமாளிப்பது என்று தெரியாமல்.
பசியால் இறந்து விடக்கூடாது என்பதால் பலநூறு கிலோமீட்டர் பிறந்த குழந்தையை தூக்கிக்கொண்டு மக்கள் சொந்த ஊருக்கு சென்றதை நாடு பார்த்தது.இன்று வரை பல கிலோமீட்டர் நடந்து சென்ற இளைஞர்கள் இறந்து இருக்கிறார்.பொருளாதார தொடர்பாக மத்திய அரசு அறிவித்ததில் திருப்தி இல்லை.

1n Pointing out that #TablighJamaat is disproportionately responsible for the spread of a disease is NOT Islamophobia. It comes from the methods of political negotiation that muslims developed in the wake of 1857 & have been systematically rewarded by both Britain and India
2n Given their eviction from power, their society never moved past the feudal structure of power capture by few elite families. Given their weak economic & electoral hand: their tactics have remained consistent: escalating through obstinacy, obstructionism & finally violence.
3n An example of this is Partition. Jinnah starts with impossible maximalist demands, then starts obstructionism, & finally calls for violence. Issue is this pattern was rewarded by the British, then by the INC & now by the BJP. This strategy has proved brilliant for them.

The Anatomy of an Indian Liberal
~Class~ Privileged.
Fridge & larder well stocked. Olives, chicken liver pate, caviar, halumi …
Plebeian provisions such as dal, atta, rice, oil - hoarded but unmentionable

~First Language~ English.

~Personal Statement~ Lets party!
BUT we are rooting for a LockDown!!!
~Opinion~ We’re screwed man.
Look at our slums. Modi is going to mess it up big time - we hope.

~Social Standing ~Working from home & partying.

What the heck, can afford to buy my own ventilator !

Anyways, following the New York #socialdistancing protocol.

There are "influencers" who are trying to instigate the minorities. Then there are honourable citizens like Khalida Begum from Kashmir.
87-year-old Khalida donated her life's savings meant for the Haj pilgrimage to @RSS4India, as she is very impressed with their welfare work
Khalida Begum wrote a letter to @sewabharati (below). Sewa Bharti is affiliated to the RSS and has been tirelessly working to get aid, food and medicine across to the poor who are affected by #lockdownindia
Her son Farooq (former IPS officer) is an advisor to Governor of J&K
Background about Khalida Begum: She is the daughter-in-law of Colonel Peer Mohd Khan, who was a president of the Jana Sangh (Jana Sangh later became the BJP).
KhalidaJi is also an active social worker.
The mainstream media won't talk about her. But here's my gratitude and pranams

The nation is on lockdown, and we all know the instructions by heart now - No touching nose, eyes, mouth - no thodals basically. So we asked ourselves…
Thottuvida thottuvida thodarum
Kai pattu vida, pattu vida malarum

Exactly…so NO.

Pattu kannam thottukolla ottikkollum

Sounds nice, but NO.

Splitters are a quick, simple way to 4X no of patients each ventilator supports. The designs are #opensource & they can be printed locally (remotely) by doctors & hospitals. Demo video
