3 years back our Emperor started his crazy experiments with economy by demonetising 86% of the currency notes!

Rest is history!

It was also an experiment to see how much we are conditioned to mutely surrender when our civil liberties and rights are taken away!

While SII and Bharat Biotech, both private firms, struggle to meet India’s domestic requirement besides international obligations, the government is giving no job to 7 public sector firms

18,257 cases with a staggering TPR of 16.77%.

We are closer to reach 5K fatalities too :(

The price we are paying for our complacency

Till it hit someone near & dear, this will be mere numbers!

Please go back to basics

Mask up & Avoid all social gatherings

“Beds do not treat patients” is an oft-repeated adage in this pandemic but it still rings true. 

Makeshift COVID hospitals are useless without medical staff. @RemaNagarajan@twitter.com is spot on here about the deep flaw of "quick fix" solutions for optics!

Why no banging of utensils are advocated by Emperor this time to scare the virus?

How many people are admitted in Sardar Patel Statue?

Which is the worst governance example?

British led us to Bengal famine

or

Modi led us to COVID-19 catastrophe?

At the same time, testing and vaccination figures were offered in absolutes, to make report card look better.

If the vaccination figures were shared as a percentage of the population, it would have shown India is far behind nations like Israel, the US, and Brazil, among others

Almost every week at its Covid briefings, the government presented India’s cases and deaths as rates per million of population, instead of absolute numbers.

This was meant to emphasise that the country’s infection and fatality rates are among the lowest in the world.

Epidemiologists say it was probably govt's mixed messaging & optimistic communications that caused general public to underestimate the pandemic, and set stage for the new Covid wave.

COVID-19 cases are spiralling up and along with TPR

13835 cases with 17.04% TPR...We are also heading to the scary scenario!

Scary in India!

Please value your life and others!

Mask up & stay away from all social gatherings to the maximum extent possible.

Systems got overwhelmed is a frightening reality, irrespective of the perception management bulletins!

Please say SAFE!

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, instead of addressing the lack of hospital beds in the capital, spoke about the imposition of weekend curfew in his press conference held on Thursday

EC should ensure that all parties shall be given equitable space in the electronic media & radio, both national & private for propagating their points, rather than silent witness to super spread events.

Of course, wishful thinking

Show thread

In this era of WhatsApp and social networks, why should we still continue with rallies amidst ?

Leaders can take their message to masses through innovative means..

Media who gives undue importance to rallies should stop promoting this super spreader events

Incompetent and insensitive Government and Constitutional checks and balances dragging India to an abyss of no return!

How long we will continue to pamper the hatred and ignore the failed state?
