If you are a Brahmin who identifies as 'not-castist' but has a lower caste person cleaning your bathroom, ur in fact v. casteist
Its 2020. Clean your own effing crap! Be the change... etc
PS: pls dont use this to deduct salaries of ppl who do this. India doesnt have a common min. wage & we already under pay lower caste employees across sectors.
PPS: Having a lower caste person clean your bathroom...while claiming to not be casteist.... is like having a white American family in the South claiming to not be racist ... while forcing a black family pick cotton.
India's Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan taking charge as the chairman of the World Health Organisation is being reported as somehow a reflection of how well India has done in responding to the pandemic.
This is wrong. 1/3
Dr HarshVardhan will succeed Japan's Dr Nakatani, the current Chairman of the 34-member WHO Executive Board.
It was the turn of SEARO (S.E. Asia Region Office), & in 2019, the bloc had decided that India's nominee would be elected to the executive board for a 3 yr beginning May
If anything, the question to ask here is how is a man who hasn't addressed a single briefing since the pandemic began, going to lead.
This is ** not in anyway ** WHO's endorsement of India's botched up pandemic response. 3/3
When private sector leaders bat for a 4500/- price cap & later arbitrarily change the amount to Rs2000/- (with ZERO justification of costing) we have errant labs like @thryocare who turn the govt approved price gouging into high art.
ICMR supplied faulty antibody kits to states & has now stalled testing
In welcome news, W.Bengal govt'll bear COVID treatment costs for patients they refer to private hosps
Media briefings now happen on alternate days. Here's what happened today
PSS, Home Affairs: Home ministry has informed states that nurses for senior citizens are essential services, milk processions units etc are allowed to function...
(again, I do not understand why non-health stuff can be dealt in a diff briefing)
The PSS at Home Affairs basically lists out meetings on video conferences, every notification signed, & meeting held-- most of which are not urgent questions- for eg- those 12lac migrants stranded in 23 THOUSAND relief camps
