Barring 1or 2 States in India, every State has fcuked up with #COVID19 tackling due to unplanned lockdown, messy implementation, inadequate funds, no consideration for poor
+ our Cent. Govt is fcuking up with the sinking economy.
+ our neighbours are scaring the sh*t out of us.
+ Modi govt is continuing with its theatrics and propaganda rubbing salt & mirchmasala on our wounds.

We are a fcuked up nation.
We will expose ourselves with our rising covid cases soon.

What can we expect from a PM who propagated the foolish theory of thali banging in the midst of 12 hour Janta curfew on 22/3 when we had not even started our covid battle. Whose efforts were we applauding at that stage?
What did we bang our thalis for?
What were we celebrating?

Balls of cement powder mixed with flour are kept as bait to get rid of rats in villages. Rats get killed after consuming the balls & the rodent menace is thus checked. Squirrels fall victim to these poisoned balls at times./1
Only difference being, humans are vocal in their empathy when squirrels die....but not when rats are killed...rats writhe in agony too, rats do have babies, pregnant female rats do exist. /2
But can you hold the cement accountable just because you perceive rats as a nuisance while squirrels cute!/3

When Modi gave a 4 hour notice for nationwide #lockdown on 24th March by allowing elite to settle in their cosy homes, did he feel migrants would not be seen & heard at all? No.
When Modi announced #lockdownindia & invoked Mythology (Mahabharat war of 18 days) to claim that fighting against Coronavirus will take 21 days, did he believe himself? No.

20 lakh cr is 10% of GDP..so, has our GDP come down from 3 trillion to 2?
Yes it has...shocked no?
Our expected GDP for 2020-21 is 2.04 trillion.

Wait, read further
Apart from RBI actions, only 4-6 lakh crores which is 2 to 2.5% of our GDP will be actually deployed.
Rejoice
GDP is in US $ I know 🙄
3 trillion dollar is 210 lakh crores INR.
Expected GDP in 2020 is 204 lakh crores INR but the 10% of GDP won't hold true as
1. RBI' efforts (8 lakh cr by way of liquidity given alreadyand the previous package) is included in yesterday's huge announcement
2. Actual disbursement of cash to the most needy sections of society will be negligible
3. Liquidity enhancing measures of RBI will be availed of by medium & large businesses while small businesses will be left in the lurch

In November 2019, the newly formed #Maharashtra government had already started taking stock of the failing economic condition, fall in GST collections, plummeted stamp duty collection, dip in revenue .../1
it had started planning ways & means to cope up with the overall economic crisis when covid 19 hit the State & the nation. /2
#UddhavThackeray with his
zero experience of administration & governance was left with tackling a mammoth crisis like never before. /3

This happens
when our PM talks but can't communicate,
tweets but doesn't mean it,
praises hardwork & demeans Howard,
flaunts his humble background but....
Bhakts know ALL of this
but they have assumed collective parenthood of a spoilt brat
#thalibajao #coronavirus
"We were hit with wooden logs and stones when we tried to bury him"

This is the reality...do we wish to know it?

While foodgrains are rotting in warehouses, poor are dying of hunger & walking endlessly ..... our PM tells us to feed 10 people...
Let's all sacrifice ourselves
While doctors, nurses are waiting for PPEs, & other necessities... PM delays in the procurements of the same....
But we need to sacrifice for our motherland, right?

Italy, UK, Spain, France took part in poignant clapping tributes. They went to their doorsteps & windows outpouring gratitude. Healthcare workers were applauded worldwide.
As millions of people were in voluntary isolation or lockdown, the clapping was a sign of raised spirits/1
On the other hand, Brazil erupted to the sound of banging pots and pans and shouts of "Bolsonaro out!" with housebound protesters expressing their anger toward the President. This was their way of un-bottling their pent-up frustration./2
In India, after indulging in all important events of kemcho Trump, Delhi riots, MP Govt toppling, (I might have missed out a few) Modi gave a 29 minute speech on #coronaviruspandemic urging people to express gratitude thru #ThaliBajao. Gratitude to whom??? Noone asked/3

हे तेव्हाच शक्य होईल जेव्हा समाज प्रबोधन होईल. दगडाची मूर्ती ही ब्राह्मणांनी देवळात बसवली आणि स्वतःची पिढ्यान पिढ्यांची सोय केली आणि ह्याच ब्राह्मण जातीने समाज प्रबोधन होऊन दिलं नाही.
जेव्हा लोक #कोरोना मधून बाहेर पडतील तेव्हा नवस फेडायला देवळांत जातील/१
आणि मंदिरव्यवसाय दुप्पट तिप्पट वेगाने परत सुरू होईल.
पाप-पुण्य, नरक, अज्ञाताची भीती दाखवून त्यातून मनाला समाधान मिळण्याचा मार्ग एकच् - देवळांत जाऊन लोटांगण घालणे, भटजी जमातीची सेवा करणे आणि दानपेटीत आपापल्या ऐपतीनुसार जास्तीत जास्त पैसे टाकणे. /२
त्यामुळे ही असली quotes वाचून कीव येते.
असो./३

@rautsanjay61 has written a fabulous piece in Saamana, the ShivSena mouthpiece. 'देवांनी मैदान सोडले'
"Gods desert the (battle)ground."

Here is a "rough translation" for non-Marathi speaking population. /1
Due to the deadly corona virus, currently all powerful nations are almost on death bed. All Gods are meeting a similar fate. /2
Mecca to Vatican, Budh Gaya to Shirdi -Siddhivinayak, all are witnessing a deadly silence.
God deserts man in crisis.
Corona has rendered religion and Gods irrelevant./3

#economiccrisis , #socialinstability #autocraticgovt #utterdenialofModimadeeconomicblunders #Delhigenocide #kashmirissuffering #CAA_NRC_NPR all of these & much more have taken a toll on most of us peace-loving Indians who reject hate/bigotry & 1/n
believe strongly in our Constitution.

I am at loss of words.

Many instances of Hindus helping Muslims & vice versa give a ray of hope. But it is equally disturbing that we get impressed by & HAVE to share such acts of brotherhood even after 75 yrs of independence. 2/n

बंगाली पत्रकार अर्क राजपंडित यांची ही फेसबुक पोस्ट आहे. मला अगदी उत्कटतेने वाटतं की ही पोस्ट भारतातील जितक्या भाषांमध्ये अनुवादित होईल आणि जितकी जास्त शेअर होईल, तितकी ती असंख्य लोकांपर्यंत पोहोचेल. कारण हे होणं अत्यंत आवश्यक आहे. #Kashmir 1/n
मला पूर्ण कल्पना आहे की जम्मू काश्मीरच्या परिस्थतीची तुलना महाराष्ट्रासारख्या पूर्ण राज्याशी करणं संयुक्तिक नाही. परंतु हे केवळ काल्पनिक कथानक असल्याचे भान वाचकाने ठेवावे. आपण हे विसरून चालणार नाही की काश्मीर हे भारताचं अविभाज्य अंग असून तिथेही लोकशाही लागू आहे. 2/n
धनत्रयोदशी च्या काही दिवस आधीची रात्र. सर्वत्र अंधार आहे. रात्रीच्या मिणमिणत्या प्रकाशात अगदी अंधुक असं दिसतंय. रस्त्यावर गाड्या ही तशा तुरळकच आहेत. गिरगांवातील गायवाडीत स्मशान शांतता पसरली आहे. 3/n

#Altsarkar I am extremely honoured & humbled to be chosen for the Ministry of Textiles #AltSarkar_Textiles /1
#AltSarkar Respected PM @Vidyut ji I assure you of my services towards looking after this key sector. I vow to work to the best of my capabilities & seek your guidance in this pivotal and fulfilling task/2
#AltSarkar My immediate concern being, a third of textile work force glaring at job loss. Textiles & readymade garments' exports  have witnessed a fall for being not competitive enough, whereas Vietnam, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka have low production cost & lesser trade barriers. /3

Though #Budget2019 claimed to be a #bahikhata , it is more of a vision, not revenue & expenditure projection,which a bahikhata as the name suggests, is supposed to be !/1
Till 1991, budget wud consist of only figures.
Vision appeared for the first time in1991,
#NewIndia of Modi govt gives only vision (no figures), a #new trend for a positive approach & a feel good attitude/2
According to World Bank figures, in 1964 India was at rank 7th with 56 billion dollar economy (total world fig stood at 1.8 trillion dollars)
In 2019 when total world fig has reached 87 trillion, India's GDP is 2.6 trillion dollars ../3

Modi has copied Adolf Hitler
Agree.....but Modi is far more dangerous than Hitler...
Why?
It's simple...
Modi is our PM, not Hitler

Love him or hate him , but one can't ignore #RajThackeray. He has exposed Modi/Shah in the last few days like no other. Not in the wildest of his dreams did Modi imagine that RajThackeray wud be played by Marathi manoos as a wild card in an unprecedented move.

We had a Chowkidar who wud sit on his chair at our bldg entrance the whole day, he won't talk a word, he just kept a watch. We were bugged with him as he looked so passive & non-interactive. We thought our building's safety is at stake. 1/n
We appointed a new active, vibrant Chowkidar. Impressed by his interactive nature, & his assurances to all that he wud be extremely cautious, we felt we were so lucky. He talked too much but we ignored as we thought he might be excellent in his work. 2/n
Then slowly we realised that he is spending too much time with Chowkidars of other bldgs When we reprimanded him, he wud plead with his std dialogue, mai gareeb ka beta hu. He wud instigate one member (of our bldg)against the other.
Thefts, fights ,etc started happening.3/n
