1/ Private enterprises create one new job where five are required. Government enterprises create jobs based on a much more realistic requirement to service its clients.

With privatization, one expects less number of people doing more work using better automated processes.

2/ for a country like India, automation is counter productive as it removes jobs. We need jobs at least till 2050 when the population stabilizes and starts to fall. After that we can go for more automation.

Automation itself too creates jobs but the numbers are far and few.
3/ Currently we need to have 100% employment, which is not going to be possible given the push for privatization.

Narendra Modi promised to create 20 Million jobs every year of his tenure. It has now been six years but instead of creating any jobs, there has been massive loss
4/ of jobs. In the last six months itself, as per CMIE, 20 Million jobs have been lost in the organized sector itself.

Today the youth are up in arms and are observing Unemployment Day to coincide with the birthday of Narendra Modi, who they now see and recognize as the biggest
5/ destroyer of jobs and the economy.

And Narendra Modi or his government of BJP has no clue as to how to counter this claim. Therefore it is trying to divert the attention of the nation through its paid media channels and social media outreach.

There are still no alarm bells
6/ ringing in the country about this joblessness but the tipping point may be closer than anyone can anticipate. One friend told me that a war is being planned. The tentative date being discussed is 3rd November, when India will engage China along with US to destroy the Chinese
7/ domination over the world. It seems security forces have been briefed about this or that is what my friend is telling me.

With this government, that invests more in defense purchases, anything is possible. The need for patriotic fervor is more today as the government has
8/ failed on all other fronts.

I just wonder how will they fight a war while maintaining social distancing?

A pic speaks a thousand words. Almost everyone will miss the de jure point that FCI is the boss. No wonder that “ In Service Of” is barely readable. After all the de facto boss is ModiJi’s Adani. Image
Food Corporation of India (FCI) has entered into an agreement with Adani group for construction of two silos to store wheat, at an estimated cost of about Rs 80 crore.
The two silos would have a combined storage capacity of 75,000 tonnes. FCI, the government's nodal agency for procurement and distribution of foodgrains, would provide guarantee of rentals for 30 years, the official added.

As usual, the middle class watches the farmer bills from the sidelines.

Fucking idiots, you are the consumers, when the prices rise and Ambani and Adani sell these high priced commodities to you, then you'll probably realize that a flat and non monopolistic .
market was for your benefit.

But by then they will have you by the balls and you'll say, well Ambani and Aadni are giving us good quality stuff and I can use my Credit/Debit card or e-wallet to pay, so it really does not matter to me.
But it does, in the long run, they will take out all the juice from your nuts and then you'll have to keep running just to stay in the same place.

Adani owns grain storage. It owns railway freight corridors. It owns ports and airports, it will soon set up stores too or give his purchase to people like Amazon, Reliance, Jio Marts, D-Marts.
They will buy big, farmers will sell to them because there will be no markets left after APMC's are no longer financially feasible.
They will transport this to the cities. There will be no limit to how much these corporate can hoard. Government has made hoarding official at all levels. Nothing now stops anyone from hoarding (or storing as it now being called) including the farmers. But the

Wrote about two months ago. The rich will suffer a 2/3rd erosion of their wealth as the bottom of the pyramid sinks into poverty.

Only Vimal can make all the shirts it wants but if the people at the bottom don't have money, because they don't
have jobs and business, then Only Vimal will have to buy all the shirts.

Same is applicable to anything else. The demand has vaporized, people are now in survival mode, they have cut all expenses, the sentiment has turned negative and now even if the
Government goes for massive spending which puts money into the hands of the people, they will first build a buffer for any new misfortune that may fall on them.

23rd September 2020.

Dr. Rajan Sharma,
Indian Medical Association,

Dear Dr. Rajan Sharma,
It is with extreme distress that citizens like me note the very high death rate among doctors attending to patients in the current pandemic situation.

As per media reports and a statement attributed to your association about 382 doctors have lost their lives. I am sure
an equal or even larger number of paramedical staff, nurses and all those who work in hospitals too must have lost their lives. We, the citizens of the country, have read and watched social media videos, where doctors who have been at the forefront of this battle of
