For three years of my job in the healthcare sector I looked at the infinite shortage of beds as nothing but government apathy and the possibility of a great business model. It took this absolute hell ride to truly understand what a thin rope we were all dangling on since forever.
Make no mistake, this is still all government apathy. They are not mismanaging it; the not doing anything and not letting it out through media IS the management of it. This is how it's done year after year after year.
This is not a collapsed system.

This is a single broken teacup that is being made to serve a party of a thousand guests with gallons of wine.

Also, not an exposed system.

The margins who've seen it have always known it is where they always end up, and many times only to die.
The other system similar to this is education. Rotten and heavy when it comes to the public, and profitable when made private; isolating for the margins, and available only to the affluent.

We see the effects of it in our society. Through the pandemic of the rot in our minds.
One has seen how this invisible and unspoken pandemic has spanned in the last few years: hate speech, mob lynchings, pogroms. It rides on corpses too.

How long before this pandemic of the mind hits the streets, too. Anyone's guess.

I do admit I wish to be wrong.

When one attacks a person as a Muslim, what happens is reduction of identities to merely that of a Muslim.

The attacked can defend as a Muslim. But the many communities that the person belongs to—that sees the person in different identities—can remind all of the other identities
For instance, when an Irfan Pathan or a Wasim Jaffer is attacked as a Muslim, the cricketer community can remind the world of who they are professionally: Cricketers. The college friends can remind of who they are educationally: Alumnis. And so on.
This not only balances the fight—which is initially many against one—to many against many, but also reminds the attacked person to not lose sight of who they are in entirety as a person: a sum total of many different identities. And addresses the core issue of reduced identity.

Many of my CA and MBA batchmates who are BJP supporters have been silent on the GDP shrinking massively this quarter.

They have been silent on the economy for a good two years now.

They are smart enough to have been seeing the decline in our economy from the last eight quarters. They know that Corona has aggravated the economic slump, not caused it.
In fact, they even know that the starting point of this decline is Demonetisation. A catastrophe that they all thumped their chests on. A financial fraud that our economy never really recovered from.

We should have probably recognised the Radicalisation of Indian Society as a humanitarian crisis long ago.

The progressive sections of the society—with all noble intentions—can keep beating drums of truth or keep filling buckets with tears of compassion, but what will remain unshaken in the regime’s mass support is the foundation of it: the nakedness of the rot in the Indian society.
One must also humbly recognise that this rot is more channelised and deliberate, than it is accidental and exploited. That it is a conscious pandemic of the minds. That governance, since a long time, has had little to do with blind allegiance towards the regime.
