What is the urgency, Counsel ?? Asked the HC in a matter where the accused in jail since October 2020. Chargesheet is filed in Feb 2021. Waiting for a hearing of bail application since March 2021. In an offense that's clearly an afterthought & perverse. Against settled law.
I effing traveled 300 kms, despite the virus risk, (though the hearing was virtual, the 1000+ page chargesheet & application were at Mumbai office), the young man of 32 years is behind the bars for 6 months where even 1 day jail is unwarranted & unjustified.
And, just like that ....just like that ...the Hon'ble Judge says : what's the urgency. Ask his wife. Ask his failing health in the dungeon that's Arthur Road jail. Ask his pre-teen kids. Ask his ailing & elderly father-in-law, who ultimately passed away. Try asking them.
Besides the human emotions, IMO, no HC Judge should be given the bail roaster for more than 1 term. The sensitivity of the incarnation gets numbed. With thousands of bail matters being listed & the Judge being unable to hear & decide - He becomes oblivious of the law & humanity.
So, the CJs of the HC should rotate the roaster of bail applications, after every assignment change. Let someone who's alive to the Constitutional guarantee of right to life & liberty sit on the bail/anticipatory bail assignments.

Citizens would be benefited.

My observations on today's Delhi HC hearing on oxygen scarcity in Delhi:
1. The scarcity is due to mismanagement & lack of co-ordination between Delhi govt, Center & oxygen supply chain stakeholders.
2. It's an abject failure of governance on the part of @ArvindKejriwal admin
3. Some re-fillers like Seth & Vinayak have been excluded from the supply chain & they seem to indulging in black-marketing.High Court has sought an Affidavit.
4. Kejriwal Administration has been found wanting on - a plan, a process, control-room, Empowered Officers etc
5. Kejriwal Admin has taken lessons from Yogi Admin in passing absurd orders. This time - threatening the hospitals. The HC took strong objection to it.
6. The HC is deeply pained by deaths due to lack of oxygen & directed Delhi Govt to give it a list so as to order compensation

Everyone above the age of 18 will be eligible for the #COVID19 vaccine from May 1 - Govt
1. Big decision of Modi Govt. Vaccines for all.
IT Cell:
Hail Modi.
Thank u Harshwardhan / Modi etc.
Look. RaGa & Dr. MMS said this. Govt agreed.Yaay.
1. Neither @RahulGandhi nor Dr. MMS suggested that people should be made to pay for the vaccines.
2. Now, the Govt has abdicated the responsibility to vaccinate those below 45.
3. We on Twitter can afford it. And, have access to it. 50% Indians wouldn't hv access or afford
4. The prices are yet to be fixed. Irrespective, we know that Rs.850/- Remdesivir injections are being sold @ Rs. 10000 - 12000/- . And the most vulnerable and marginalized are being forced to buy. [Refer to @sohitmishra99 's stories from Nashik etc]
5. We don't have the numbers:

So @svaradarajan listed out some of Modi's blunders in today's edition of @TheIndiaCable .
I'm reproducing it here:
1.The delayed realisation that this was a disease that needed to be taken seriously because the priority mid-March 2020 was toppling the Congress government in MP
2. The sudden lockdown, announced with no planning or consultation with official stakeholders.

3. The assault on the media instead of getting the administration to plug the shortcomings that journalists were highlighting.

4. The communalisation of the pandemic.
5. False bravado in claiming India was doing better than others, which played a major role in the public lowering its guard.

6. Touting fake technological solutions like Aarogya Setu. Promoting bogus ‘AYUSH’ remedies, especially those produced by businessmen close to BJP

What we know so far : #COVID19
1. The fresh infections are mind-boggling. Govts hv a propensity to under report data - cause from day 1 - Modi controlled Godi media has used the metric to bad-mouth the State govts, especially, non-BJP govts that weren't fudging the numbers
So the actual numbers may be close to 5-6 lacs fresh infections per day.
2. It's showing. At hospitals, at crematoriums, at our homes. And, our friend's & neighbor's homes.
3. There hasn't been any significant addition to the health infrastructure. Not of the permanent nature.
4. Temporary #Covid_19 facilities were erected, but the motive was - corruption, favoritism etc. Across the States. There's no BJP/Congress difference in that space. Whoever is in power, has minted the pandemic.
5. GoI's virus surveillance and tracking mechanism has failed.

Probably, this is from where I picked up the virus. Or, the virus decided to use my body as a host.

In the evening when I reached home, I was feeling down. Thinking it to be due to exertion, i popped a pill & retired early.
Next day: I traveled to Pune for case. Finished it in first half. Was back home by 5.30 PM. A meeting was scheduled at office at 7 PM

The Boss: you look tired. Touched my forehead & said - u also hv fever.

Boss made me cancel the meeting. Gave a paracetamol tab. I was fine.
We were to travel to Malegaon on Saturday morning for Holi vacation.
Boss said: Let's postpone it by a day. You take rest for the full day on Saturday.

I managed to convince her to let me go to office in the 2nd half.

By 3 PM, Saturday I was in office.
