Review and rewind April 2020-Part 2

In my previous blog, I mentioned about January-March how my life changed with the world’s situation. We are witnessing a big change in our lives and trying to withstand and overcome the phase. In history, the year will be remembered and if we survive we will have tales and stories to tell our grandchildren.

April:

As the days were passing by, it was not just difficult to accept the fact that staying home is difficult but also hopeless. The newly married couples were somehow managing to sustain by bringing the romanticism in themselves with their intoxication and smoke of love. They were trying to know each other and trying to utilise most of the time building up a bond. Trust me, in these 100 years a few are lucky who were able to spend every minute together but it was not the case everywhere. With work from home, many women were in deep turmoil of working for home and from home. Domestic violence increased, bachelors who were clasped in their rooms find it difficult to manage their lives, food spending time alone which led to depression.

The onset of the deadly coronavirus not just killed people furthermore brought the world to its knees by every means. Everything was closed, malls were empty, deserted airports, stranded migrants and tourists.

The virus was at the early stage of its journey though shattered the health infrastructure of many countries.

Though India took a bold step and decided to call for an early lockdown they didn’t organize the after plans on how to manage such a huge population, poor people, migrants and labours. People those who are stuck in different parts of the country. Soon the failure of proper planning started to show up along with that every day numbers of corona cases were doubling up.

Tablighi Jamaat

On March 20, in Telangana 10 Indonesians were tested positive, they participated in a religious event named Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin Markaz, Delhi.

The entire social media, news channels were flooding with the news of Tablighi Jamaat which became a burning topic and took the turn to religious angle.

Case in point is the irresponsible behaviour of particular sect in the muslim community, The Tablighi jamaat, which led to a sharp rise in the number of cases in India and endangered further spread. Not just India, Tablighi congregation drove the spread in Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei and Pakistan as well.

For the first time, the city of Raiwind in Pakistan is under complete lockdown due to the same.

With all this happening in the world, then we found a few who were trying to help poor and needy with ration were also clicking their pictures and posting in social media which raised opinion in for and against of the same.

Tablighi Jamaat turned out to be a bombshell with 300 confirmed cases and 10 deaths became a new super spreader of Corona Virus. We witnessed keyboard fights in our country where many Hindus accused and made fun of Muslims. On the other hand, many Muslims blamed the government and were disheartened the reason was the handful of Muslims of such psyche plops the whole community answerable.

Trump and Hydroxychloroquine

If we all remember, President Trump was also creating headlines with his public statements. We got to know that India is the major supplier of hydroxychloroquine in the world. America demanded and ordered the supply from India and stated:

I don’t like that decision, I have not heard that it was his decision. I only know that he stopped the export for his country. We are in very good talk, I’ll see if it’s like this because India does very well with the United States from many years it has been taking advantage of the United States on trade so I will be surprised if he has taken such decision. If he allows the supply then it’s okay but if he doesn’t then there will be retaliation, why wouldn’t there be?

Meanwhile, during the lockdown in April we witnessed that India is no-more the peaceful place where every religion leaves in peace and harmony. Some people were successfully bowing the seeds of religious hatred.

Fake news was getting circulated, many were trolled in social media.

Plasma Therapy

With all these happening in the world, scientists were busy inventing vaccines, different countries also initiated clinical trials.

Even in India, The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has given approval to convalescent plasma therapy in Kerala.

The therapy takes antibodies from the blood of a person who has recovered from a virus and then it is transferred into a person sick with that virus.

In details:

https://romieducation.com/2020/04/12/convalescent-plasma-therapy-approved-for-covid19/

After lockdown-1, India decided to extend the lockdown.

the priority of the government is to save each and every life.

Modi

Our lovable Modi gave us the task to beat utensils, bells on a fixed time. But people like me were also realising the fact that lockdown is not the ultimate solution.

The Indian lockdown is the severest in the world, the economist carried a chart based on studied by a group in Oxford which ranked the countries on a severity index on their response to COVID-19.

India topped the chart in the world, while India topped the chart according to the intensity of the lockdown, on the other side India was at the bottom of the chart when it came to a fiscal stimulus for the economy in terms of percentage of GDP.

Detailed information: https://romieducation.com/2020/04/11/modis-macro-actions-have-worked-now-india-needs-micro-focus/

While all these were happening, Indians from all over the world joined the battle which landed with a tweet to PM Modi objecting to a tweet from a BJP minister.

It all started with the first major cause, an Indian named Saurabh Upadhyay who runs a company in Dubai tweeted some provoking tweets. He never thought in his dreams that his tweet might get so famous for all the wrong reasons. Though he apologised and deleted his account, people started to dig in more tweets, several posts of Indian spreading hate speech and fake news were found.

India remained under lockdown throughout the month of April. I was a master chef in making. Every day I used to come up with new food recipes. However, my life is simple and sorted but a lot of things we’re happening all over the world. Not just our common keyboard warriors even celebrities were uploading objectionable and communal posts which resulted in police arrests and suspension of various accounts.

Migrants, Mob lynching, Bandra station migrants attack communal posts by celebrities.

But then it happened that the migrants started to walk barefooted towards their villages from the dream cities. They were hungry, anxious and worried about their life and future.

It showed us how the sudden unplanned lockdown built chaos in their lives.

Now what I am going to cover raised many questions about humanity in India.

Today, after closing our eyes to such heinous atrocities, I cannot say that the whole country has stood up to support what is right and what is agenda driven.

How ruthless this India is, the coronoviruses entering India are not spreading as fast as the cruel mentality of India is being exposed in this effort.

It said that there were rumors that gathered at Bandra station to board the train.

On 16 April 2020, the incident brought tears to our eyes when two Hindu monks were brutally executed. The public has become so cruel that it takes the law into its own hands.

Policemen and health workers were attacked in many parts of India. Even the attack on Arnab Goswami was furthermore a highlight.

This lockdown has brought in many perspectives that are happening in the world, brings out inherent human nature to the forefront and history will remember every action we as an individual, society or as a country do. Remember, the world will remember this. Our maiming by this virus has brought the finest and ugliest of us.

Geopolitics – China, USA and the world.

Geo-politics and economy are intertwined in itself in this globalized world.

The US wants to maintain its supremacy and by attacking WHO.

However, China recovered early and hence its economy is back on track, forcing the US to accept the deaths yet not slow down the economy. Japan, Germany, Australia coming together and trying to hold China responsible. 

RBI accepting Sri Lankan gov. offer of deposit as bonds. China flexing its muscle in South China sea and threatening Vietnam by allowing illegal fishing of Chinese fisherman backed by its navy in Vietnamese waters because it recently did an exercise with US Navy or making sure Pakistan gets emergency bailout and the very next day Pakistan testing missile and doing gunnery exercise, giving India direct message that it is not happy with India’s proposition in recasting WHO.

Many countries were now blaming China openly for the virus.

Burning Bengal:

Let’s now come back to our country because have a lot of drama here and this time it’s our Drama Queen, our West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee.

Coronavirus did change the course of Indian politics. Along with that, also exposed not only the mentality of politicians and media people but also the common men.

The Bengal Chief Minister was clear of locking horns with the Prime Minister since the beginning of the fight against Coronavirus. She refused the plea of lighting lamps. 

The demise of Irfan Khan

Irfan khan the multi-talented actor who’s loved by everyone died on 29th Aprilat the age of 54.

Bollywood mourned with the death of Rishi Kapoor:

I am shattered and saddened after reading the news that Rishi Kapoor passes away. The entire nation hasn’t even didn’t come out from the demise of Irrfan khan yet when another legendary actor left us.

I covered three months in one blog and even though I tried to compress the month of April you can yourself see how many things have happened during the month.

Be with me to memorise everything that happened during the rest of the remaining months.

Review and Rewind 2020.

The clock ticked 11:50 pm on December 31st, and I was eagerly waiting to welcome the new year and explore 2020.

The year, 2019 gave me all the happiness, love and blessings and now was it’s time to depart. I was eager to find out what changes will the leap year brings to my life. Though North India was freezing the winters of Bangalore is much more pleasant.

Being new to the place, I had no friends and couldn’t decide to celebrate elsewhere and landed up hosting a party for myself at my cosy place. Then I didn’t know that this 2BHK flat will be the place where I will be locked for so many months. All festivals, parties and occasions will be celebrated only here.

With the beginning of the New year, I started job hunting and growing my small business simultaneously. I didn’t know what was striding towards us and I was specific for my job opportunities turning down several positions.

January:

In January, all my Chinese friends and students went for their Chinese new year when I heard that a virus has emanated in the country from Wuhan. My friends from China kept apprised me about the situation and kept on updating me with videos and photos. Many of them approached me asking for masks availability as there masks were out of stock everywhere. The small MSME’s were in the loss and the owners were worried and tensed. I kept on supporting them mentally when students mentioned me as their “Soul teacher”.

Every morning their day started with authorities arriving at door-step for a temperature check. The first case of CoronaVirus was reported on 30th January in Kerala from a person who returned from Wuhan, China. Soon it spread in other parts of the country.

The team of WHO paid a visit to China and after return WHO tweeted that there is no human to human transmission. Despite the fact that the doctors of China mentioned that human transmission is possible. The entire world did trust the global organisation and relied on the statement.

  • Meanwhile, in the United States of Colorado and Nebraska reported mysterious drones in the sky.
  • The movie Parasite won the Oscar in January.
  • The first day of the year started with bushfires in Australia. Basically, the bushfire started from September 19 till March 20.
  • As the year started, on 3rd January, the U.S. drone strike killed General Qassem Soleimani raised tension with Iran.
  • On January 27, an agreement was signed between the government of India, Bodo groups and the Assam government to redraw and rename the BTAD in Assam.

February:

Many applicants put the enrollment on hold as they informed that their banks are closed and they will be in lockdown. I lost all my students who were about to start the new batch. They said that as soon as the virus abolishes will get back to me. By then, the SARS-like virus has already a name and it known as COVID-19.

  • On 11th February, in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party won the election by securing 62 seats out of 70 at Delhi Legislative Assembly election-2020.
  • The cocktail of NRC+CAA didn’t go well which ultimately resulted in Delhi riots.
  • The cause of the riots was hate speech, confrontations, CAA protests, provocations. The riot resulted in the death of 53 people and 200+ injured.

Details: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Delhi_riots

Well, we all know that the royal and golden guest Donald Trump arrived in India on 24 February. The event was addressed as “Namaste Trump”.

I celebrated my birthday without my friends but this time it was special. However, I went for dinner on the date. Meanwhile, my blogs were performing well especially the coronavirus blogs of mine and grabbed the eyeballs of many across the world.

India sealed Chinese borders and ban all flights flying too and from China.

March:

Time flies by, I entered the month of Holi, yes the month of March.

In no time, the virus crossed the borders and spread to the USA, Europe and a few more countries.

India initially successfully managed to rein in Coronavirus spread but all went in vain when on 3rd March, 69 years old Italian spread the virus in Rajasthan.

To read in details: https://romieducation.com/2020/03/18/havoc-of-coronavirus-in-india/

Most of the MNC’s declared work from home. WHO declared 2019-nCov as a pandemic.

The government was taking all safety measures like temperature check, closed all mass gathering points, religious places, restaurants, pubs and bars, all educational hubs along with tourist places were closed.

India evacuated its citizens from China, Iran, Maldives and other countries.

By 18th of March, 7447 confirmed cases were reported with 239 deaths. Many celebrities and influencers were busy educating people to wear masks and use hand sanitizers. Social media and channels broadcasted educational videos and ads to make people aware of precautions and preventative measures.

Where so much was going through along with the blogs, I was also busy writing my E-novel Nillie and had its own fanbase from India, Egypt, Iran, China and a few more countries. Besides writing I was also giving interviews parallelly and luckily I got selected in multiple companies but I was more excited to clear the round of an MNC which was about to hire me as their marketing manager. They asked me to create an assignment in the final round and submit by 26th March on which my selection will prevail.

I was working day and night, understanding the company, requirements, as the job role was new for me and being experienced in sales the domain was new for me.

On 22nd March, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation and called for 21 days complete lockdown.

We were asked to stay at home, only essential items were available. With the announcement, I went to stock ration from the nearby stores and found people were busy in panic shopping.

After returning from the market, I woke up the whole night to prepare the presentation and was about to send at the EOD.

Early morning, I received mail from the HR where she mentioned that as Government has announced locking we are keeping our hiring on hold till the economic condition improves. I was devastated and shocked but somehow I already knew that this might happen. With this, all other companies froze the hiring, and I was jobless and hopeless where I decided to give blogging a try and find other opportunities in my business.

By 25th March, the world was gasping with the shortage of ventilators, noted personalities pledged and donated to the funds. Health infrastructure, of many countries, broke down. Countries like Italy, France, and entire Europe and the United States, lost the battle against the virus. While most of the people in the world we’re in lockdown situation in China started to get normal. People returned back to their businesses and public place resumed. But that didn’t bring much happiness, for international suppliers from China as they lost many contracts, no buyers were ready to purchase their products.

WHO follows the bigger power?

The world raised questions and criticised WHO over handling the pandemic and taking a long time to declare openly about the virus.

To read in details, click: https://romieducation.com/2020/03/29/coronavirus-world-in-distress-seeking-answer-from-who-china/

The question was if China found that the virus is humanly transmitted then why didn’t they inform the world beforehand?

By now, the world started speculating, assuming and creating stories about the virus. It was clear by now, that China has emerged as the most powerful country in the UN and has means to silence global institutions.

Detailed analysis: https://romieducation.com/2020/03/30/coronavirus-world-in-distress-seeking-answer-from-who-china-2/

A great announcement of 20lac crore for India’s self-reliance. Analysis and defails.

The entire nation is now talking about the package of 20 lac crore our honourable prime minister has announced.

We can see a lot of articulation, calculation, doubts, speculation is there in people’s mind. Everyone is trying to understand how will the finance minister provide and chart a plan for the huge amount that our Prime Minister has announced.

From where we received so much assured amount?

The entire nation was asking for financial support from the government and the government was silent. Was it preparing to arrange such a huge amount and a proper plan?

What will be the effect of the amount provided to different sectors? Will it change the lifestyle of us Indians?

How the amount will make us self-reliant?

Let’s try to find out all the answers but before I proceed I will mention that I am not an economist, I have read and heard about the same and gathered some information and simply compiling them with my additional opinion just to share with you.

Let’s first understand what the package is all about and which sectors it will cover.

The package and planning was already in the minds of government, the government was waiting for the right time. It actually wanted this plan to have a proper direction and wanted to give the objective and outcome desired a proper name and hence the delay.

I am saying this because a few days ago, I listened to one interview with Nitin Gadkari where he said that the government is planning to provide support and help to the SME’s and MSME’s.

The exact details of the economic package announced by the government are not yet known but we can speculate that the amount must be from the government’s borrowings, funds and printing of currency notes in nearby future.

The package will cover:

  • Land, labour, liquidity and laws
  • The package will support business and where self-reliance actually comes, if you have listened to his speech, he said:

The locals have helped us during the pandemic. Now it’s time to be vocal for the local.

Narendra Modi
  • The package will support India’s cottage industries, home industries, micro small and medium enterprises.

This is utter truth that in this lockdown few factors constantly kept working; our local grocery shops, local vegetable shops and the online apps. The nearby pharmacy store was open to providing us with medicines. The farmers kept working day and night to feed the country. Before Covid India did not make even a single PPE kits, and today we are self reliant. He said:

The package is for the country’s labour, farmers who have worked in every circumstances, for the countrymen and the middle class who pays taxes honestly and for the industries.

Narendra Modi

Now the campaign name comes ” ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan’ this is actually going to play an important part. As discussed earlier in my blog of labour law where the UP government changed the crisis into a good crisis. Similarly, India can also take this opportunity and try to be self sufficient. India is a capable manufacturer yet we purchase so many products from other neighbouring countries now it’s the time where we come self-reliant.

The decision of the RBI and the package is total of approx 10% of india’s GDP.

The reforms include a supply chain system for agriculture, rational tax system, simple and clear laws, capable human resources and strong financial system.

The package will cover the migrants both in the organised and unorganised sector.

Going In-depth :

The package includes all the pre-proposed and previously announced measures to save the economy in lockdown.

The relief package announced by India is huge, it stands in top 5 of the financial package announced by the United States which is 13% of its GDP and Japan 21% of its GDP and other nations.

The 20 lac package includes the 1.7 lac crore of food grains provided to poor and cash to the elderly and women already announced in March.

It includes the Reserve Bank’s liquidity measures and interest rate cuts with some of them already rolled out.

That’s why in the beginning I said the decision was not made overnight, the government was working on it step by step, analyse all the advantages, disadvantages and situation before bringing this campaign.

As per the Economic Times, an additional 12 lac crore will be pumped into the economy.

Opportunities:

  • Giving full tax exemption will give new investment opportunities to the sectors like medical devices, electronics, telecom equipment and capital goods.
  • There can be easy access to land and labour reforms, to attract companies invest in India and set up their manufacturing plants and industries. Let’s see how the government will provide lands.
  • If actually, this happens, if giant industries take interest in setting up a business in India as we can provide both blue & white collared manpower, there will be growth in business and employment opportunities hence India can actually turn the table.

According to him, a self-reliant India stands on five pillars which will bring in quantum jump.

What is Quantum jump?

Quantum jump is basically a proverb that means a sudden, noticeable and significant advance.

The other factors will be infrastructure, technology-driven system, vibrant demography and demand.

Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman will meet the prime minister on Thursday to finalise the economic package.

The Migrant Conundrum |Poverty & Lockdown.

Over the past few weeks the most pressing matter the government is trying to handle is the migrant crisis that has arisen out of this lockdown. It seems that the government advisory mechanism was caught off guarded over repercussions of this lockdown from the migrant perspective.

To the flocking of thousands of migrants at Delhi-Ghaziabad border, to the staging protest in Surat, Andhra border or at Bandra in Mumbai. People have been protesting to arrange the government for their return to their natives. While the government has been suggesting staying put wherever they are, respective state government have been arranging return of their citizens.

A quick survey of migrant’s shelters reveals the horror. The Delhi police survey report states to Indian Express (April 28), that fans are not working, no power backup, sanitization of toilets rarely done, most migrants want to leave as their families cannot survive, rude behavior of civil staff, pathetic quality of food, no hand wash and sanitizer, foul smells in toilet, water supply in toilets only between 7 to 11am, one soap for bathing and no detergent to was clothes, mosquito bites and so on. If these are the conditions of voluntary camps, don’t even imagine the conditions of quarantine camps where one have no option but to stay.

This lockdown has left the marginal section who barely are lifted out of poverty at the helm of going back to poverty. With no job, no food and no means to send remittances to their family, it is natural that one gets frustrated. The grim pictures of migrants cycling or walking back on foot along with small children thousands of kms paints the reality of this lockdown. Remember, the lives exist out of gated society as well. The truth is government is yet to figure out the assistance of this section, and assistance if received have benefited only few.

Once, these people go back and settle, the MSME’s will be the hardest hit, which are dependent on these workforces. Once stopped, it is no easy job to restart a business. Indian railways have set off across country to bring back home the stranded migrants and estimates that 500 such trains will be needed across 15 days to get the job done. The state of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh have to huddle together as coordination with states are the major pain pointed out by the Railways. Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal are also in the line.

Once this exercise is over, the next challenge of the government is to kick start the economy and feed its jobless citizens, in a country where malnutrition is entrenched, especially among children, there is a danger of hunger becoming widespread too. We all have anecdotal evidence that families are going hungry and some are starving too. While you can have food given to you by government, one just cannot give up his dignity and have no job but just food to eat even if given free by the government. A human need is much more than just-food.

Where we read disturbing news of people committing suicide because he wasn’t able to feed his family during lockdown.

On the other hand, jewellers are forced to sell vegetables so that they can survive from the lockdown crisis.

A food for thought!!.

The shaken Economy and inter-twined Geopolitics.

The Fallouts, movers and shakers.

This lockdown has brought in many perspectives that are happening in the world, brings out inherent human nature to the forefront and history will remember every action we as an individual, society or as a country do. Remember, the world will remember this. Our maiming by this virus has brought the finest and ugliest of us.

As the famous proverb goes, a small ant can make the elephant dance to its tune, the same has happened to us and actually we have been doing the same to mother nature as well. Just compare the size of an ant to elephant, virus to human and human to the size of the earth. Still !!!

The demand to hold China responsible for hiding facts and letting the world slip in this precarious situation is growing spearheaded by the US. Australia, Japan and some countries have joined the blame game. West Europe is still cautious due to many factors; however, East Europe is praising China for its help to them. India as a major stakeholder in world politics is as always diplomatic and cautious, a strategy which has worked for it most of the time.

From now on, countries will rally against China to disrupt the world order. We have realized that China under Xi Jinping is too authoritarian and is detrimental to global peace. While it gave the world a pandemic, due to its ruthless regime it was able to control it and now flexing its muscle in the south china sea, while the countries are a busy fighting virus. Same goes with its selling of PPE’s, faulty masks and test kits.

However, I don’t believe this is a society in general in China. Today its clout has helped saved itself from being penalized for such grievous and deliberate mistake and still covered up by WHO itself.

It got Pakistan the emergency bail-out package, and in repayment the very next day Pakistan blocked an area in the Arabian sea to test out anti-ship missile and armament testing, giving India a solid hint through Pakistan that it should not have suggested recasting of WHO.

https://romieducation.com/2020/04/21/while-trying-to-find-the-root-of-hatred-and-absurdity-of-us-found-modi-ji-is-trying-the-same/

https://romieducation.com/2020/04/16/to-fight-over-religion-communism-caste-and-allowing-other-countries-to-point-a-finger-on-us-is-this-what-we-want/

We are still intrigued by why paradox has happened. West Europe and the US with great public health Infra saw high infection and death, and on the other hand South Asia somehow miraculously escaped the wrath of Virus.

India is a special case, rotting health infra, lack of doctors, not enough money, lack of protective equipment’s and many more and still, we showed the world, on why India’s frugal approach is efficient and effective.

Well, many factors are at play here.

Did universal BCG program help us?

As a population have our bodies developed a better defence against the virus as we are always exposed to the unhygienic situation?

Not sure enough. But what we know is that we implemented lockdown early, we gave priority to human lives rather than economy and we remained steadfast despite a lot of hurdles like religious gathering, attack of doctors and police, communalization and many more.

While the world is fighting for Ventilators, PPE’s, masks, we are doing our best by making some and importing some. Salute to ICMR, which quietly deviated from WHO guidelines and stood grounds on its plan.

The Economy is in shambles, the majority are losers, but some are winners as well. Radhakishan Damani, the owner of Avenue supermart running as D-Mart I believe should be the only winner in this lockdown where he gained from panic buying.

Let’s move from an individual perspective, we saw the Kirana store as the real winner brought to the forefront during these difficult times. E-commerce and supermarkets collapse suggest that slow and steady wins the race, and old is gold!! We will not be surprised to see now that manufacturers shifting gears towards channel programs benefiting these mom and pop stores. Remember, Kirana stores are much more street smart and ingenious, as another channel have too much dependency, be it delivering personal, corporate formulated protocols and supply chain or many more. We definitely will see a lot of behavioural change, government prioritizing public health spending, R&D spending and many more.

If you ever thought the defence sector is going to take a hit after this, you cannot be more wrong. We saw an increase in digital payments in some sectors which traditionally not have had much traction, maybe people will have some apprehension in exchanging cash for time to come.

We saw China’s opportunistic takeover and Gov. of India bringing new laws in FDI policy. If we look closely, everything is intertwined in itself. China increased its stake in HDFC and HDFC in Reliance Capital. Majority of investment in the digital industry can be traced back to one country. Guess who is the majority investor in Paytm?

Geo-politics and economy are intertwined in itself in this globalized world. Let’s analyze this correlation in major economies.

The US wants to maintain its supremacy and by attacking WHO, we know who it is attacking.

China recovered early and hence its economy is back on track, forcing the US to accept the deaths yet not slow down the economy. Japan, Germany, Australia coming together and trying to hold China responsible. India despite being in lockdown mode not leaving any stones unturned to make sure Its adjoining countries do not shift their gears again towards China and also use its soft power. Be it allowing exports of essential medicines like paracetamol and Hydroxichroloquine or donating to Nepal and Bangladesh.

RBI accepting Sri Lankan gov. offer of deposit as bonds. China flexing its muscle in South China sea and threatening Vietnam by allowing illegal fishing of Chinese fisherman backed by its navy in Vietnamese waters because it recently did an exercise with US Navy or making sure Pakistan gets emergency bailout and the very next day Pakistan testing missile and doing gunnery exercise, giving India direct message that it is not happy with India’s proposition in recasting WHO.

India bringing new FDI scrutiny to save itself from opportunistic takeovers yet government deliberately not falling into trap of blame game as it needs help from wherever possible. It remains to be seen how it handles again the 5G war which has again returned due to US and China strife. Major world power rushing to help Africa, not actual help but showdown to grab as much goodwill possible and remove China’s clout. Russia sending in planeloads of the mask and other essentials as a goodwill gesture to the US, and North Korea and Iran using this apt time to fire as many missiles as possible as the world is busy saving themselves.

Bringing forward these perspectives help us see through the prism that how we behaved during these times which will have major ramifications for the time to come.

Know my opinions every Sunday.

How ruthless is India? First Jamaat then mobilization. Throwing stones at doctors. Officer …

What are you doing in India?

I am writing this blog to understand the mindset of Indian citizens about where we are going as a society.

What do we want?

Today, after closing our eyes to such heinous atrocities, I cannot say that the whole country has stood up to support what is right and what is agenda driven. We are on position

Today I cannot say that the whole country is one to support what is right. Stand united and raise voice against the ill mentality of some fellow citizens.

How ruthless this India is, the coronoviruses entering India are not spreading as fast as the cruel mentality of India is being exposed in this effort.

It said that there were rumors that gathered at Bandra station to board the train.

Why I am applying such harsh words as it is in many cases.

Have you noticed how much hate and anger we have for each other?

Where celebrities like Rangoli Chandel and Babita Phogat are writing about Jamati. On the other hand, people like Ajaz Khan are trying to make fun of Hinduism and our God.

Celebrities are in the limelight, what about others? His account got suspended from writing literate the way Rangoli has made famous.

Let me justify myself, why I mentioned cruel India, let us understand the case:

Mob lynching:

On 16 April 2020, the incident brought tears to our eyes when two Hindu monks were brutally executed. The public has become so cruel that it takes the law into its own hands. They didn’t think before

The entire country has watched the video. His car was stopped, he was beaten repeatedly until his cry was silenced in front of the police.

When the police left the monks in the video, I was stopped. Even now I am writing this, I am getting so emotional, I feel like crying.

101 people have been arrested so far, I will come in my upcoming blog with detailed information about the mob in India.

Attack on Arnab Goswami

Another shocking news, late night in a notification saying that Arnab Goswami was attacked.

I grew up listening to their arguments and trying to catch them. His discussion helped me during group discussions, news interviews, and personal information that he aired. He became m

We all know that he and his wife were attacked at midnight when they were returning from the studio.

The incident occurred 500 meters from his residence. Arnab and his wife managed to escape and we remained unwell. They filed a complaint.

So now I have some questions in my mind and I want a healthy discussion, but before I ask anything, I should make it clear. I do not support any party and neither BJP nor Congress.

,https://romieducation.com/2020/04/21/while-trying-to-find-the-root-of-hatred-and-absurdity-of-us-found-modi-ji-is-trying-the-same/

शिकायत दर्ज करने के लिए अर्णब पुलिस स्टेशन में

If I want to ask anything, it is out of curiosity, therefore, please do not be related in any political way.

Firstly, this is not the first time Arnab attacked Sonia directly, then why did she suddenly attack two days ago when she resigned from the studio?

How can he directly accuse Congress? Sometimes I think she is very biased, maybe that’s my thinking.
Everything happened so fast, he was attacked and then two people were arrested.

Tablighi Jamaat Markaz & other religious places | Media channels & Social Media-the blame game.

I am writing point by point so that I can stick to logic and reality:

  • As we know, on March 13, 3400 people gathered in Nizamuddin Markaz, a part of South Delhi. All the religious places were open before the lockout.
  • The whole of India, especially our Hindus and political aspirations, despite misunderstanding and gathering information on a realistic basis, started abusing, mocking and writing hate speech against the Jamati

Of all the ceremonies, as written, what did you see Nizamuddin alone? Are you a hypocrite

Coronavirus soon took a political and religious turn without realizing that the virus does not discriminate between the rich and the poor or on the basis of religion, group, or community.

Bangalore and Moradabad attack

Naming just two major attacks, we have seen several other attacks against health workers and police officers in Ranchi and Indore.

In the evening on 19 April, a team of health workers and policemen arrived in a ward in Padarayanapura area of West Bengaluru, with 58 people who had come in contact with patients with coronovirus.

The locality was sealed last week after 3 patients participating in Tablighi Jamaat tested positive.

When the team arrived around 7 pm, a crowd of about 200 people started removing the barricades. However, the City of Scholars did not attack the crew members, but property damage was reported

So far, 54 people have been arrested.

  • In Moradabad, a crowd of about 150 people came and started throwing stones at the team of doctors, attacking the ambulance and also damaged the police car and ambulance. However, 17 attackers arrested

Ram Navami, Ayodhya

On 25 March, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh performed Lord Ram’s ceremony in Ayodhya. The media did not discuss the subject very much, however, the ceremony was done during the Lockdown

State officials said they took appropriate precautions before the ceremony to maintain and disinfect people and ensure cleanliness and hygiene.

Weddings During Lockdown: Is Corona for the Poor?

On 17 April, Nikhil Kumaraswamy married the daughter of a former Congress minister.

While my cousin’s marriage was postponed due to the lockdown, many weddings and funerals were similarly canceled, but some people could not understand.

In fact, here I will mention that our UP Chief Minister’s father died this morning and he could not attend the ceremony due to the responsibilities due to the lockout. Did many other weddings

He is visiting hospitals, taking wise and brave decisions for the welfare of the state. The Chief Minister of UP is doing tremendous and excellent work, even if the 5 stars are changing and giving comfort to the doctors.

But one thing, I am unable to understand that he traveled to Ayodhya to offer his prayers and now he canceled his trip. Can anyone explain me

Devotees violating the lockout

The annual chariot procession at the Siddalingeshwar temple was held in Kalaburagi on 16 April.

Around 1,000 refugees participated in the procession.

If you have an idea, Kalaburgi is the place where the first death due to coronovirus occurred, followed by 2 more deaths. It was the first district in the country to close.

Following the incident, two police officers were suspended.

Christian prayer meet during the lockdown

On April 5, a pastor held a prayer meeting to mark the beginning of the Holy Week of Christians.

The police raided and found that no one wore a mask and maintained social distance. The pastor was arrested for violating rules.

Naming just two major attacks, we have seen several other attacks against health workers and police officers in Ranchi and Indore.

Quarantine teams attacked the public.

In addition to the much known attacks, check for a few more such attacks:

As we can see, ASHA activists attacked to check for corona symptoms.

On this, Karnataka chief minister assured to provide full security to Asha workers and other officials. 
As Karnataka earlier announced a lockdown relaxation from April 21 was withdrawn partly later on.

Similar attacks occurred in some other states, at a glance:
A tweet from the police attacking an injured was posted.

Four more shots, please! Is just not only about feminism. A must watch web-series.

Recently, I saw the ads of Four more shots, please! again. Last year, my friends did praise about the web-series but I assumed that it might be inspired by Kareena Kapoor’s Veerey Di Wedding and I decided to skip it because I wasn’t interested in watching any show based on feminism which shows how women have all rights to be badass.

This year, as we are in lockdown there is sufficient time to watch shows which varies by our taste.

So I started with Season 1 last Thursday night and finished the last episode of season 2 on Saturday afternoon.

I just loved the web-series. I tell you why?

Review in my way:

I am not going to write here the review for that you can just google it and find many articles and blogs on the same. Mine is a little twisted, I am not here to simply narrate the story but to make you understand why we must watch it. This web series is about four girls and the journey of their life. Why I liked the plot so much is because

  • All the actors have done justice to their acting.
  • Hats of to the leading ladies, all the four have justified their given roles and are a perfect fit.
  • Damini (Sayani Gupta), Umang (Bani J), Anjana (Kirti Kulhari) and Siddhi (Maanvi Gaagro) so the four girls met at a bar a few years back and bonded together.
  • The beautifully scripted storyline begins with someone’s success to others sorrow and sadness due to personal problems.
  • It actually shows the bond of friends and how important is it to have real friends in life.
  • Many of the times, we listen to others and do what pleases us because we trust a stranger more than others and we intentionally like to fall in the trap. Just like Anjana, who believed in someone.
  • Sidhi’s character shows how the family controls her since childhood and how she deals with body-shaming and finally starts to love herself.
  • In our society, we girls are grown and adapted the way our family and friends body-shame us, make fun of us. If we do something good, our own family doubt on our capabilities.
  • In my family, I am being fat-shamed and body-shamed since childhood. In many families, even in-laws mock and body-shame.
  • One of my cousins mocked at me for having readers and having fans on my page. Where this blog is even liked by Rangita Pritish Nandy and Maanvi Gagroo.
  • One of my knowns keeps abusing and threatening me when I give my views and opinions related to politics.

  • Though it was not required the way she gained the confidence, learned self-love and discovers her skills and abilities.
  • Bani J as Umang is a bisexual and falls in love with Samaira (Lisa Ray).
  • Umang’s character was actually interesting, it showed how she wanted to live her life with her own individuality. Being a Punjabi village girl she transformed herself, sustained and survived. Though her partner initially refused to admit their relationship later on everything goes well and they head towards marriage.
  • The one thing, that Umang said, at last, was not to choose a person who keeps career over you and try to mould someone according to own. I fully agree, there must be mutual concern and agreement. A relationship must always be equal in the sense of loving, adjusting, understanding, compromising and sacrificing. I can say that Bani was a real fit for the character.
  • Damini’s character is about a girl who is a journalist and founder of her company. She has a strong will, striking confidence, responsibility and maturity. Her, life shows different shades related to different topics be it office politics, anti-nationalism, righteousness. She is someone having a strong will-power, writing about and standing by the truth.

The story covers topics like misogyny, inequalities, trolling. It’s actually difficult for girls to survive even in Modern India where there are so many idiots in this world. Even on Facebook, so many people keep messaging, calling continuously unnecessarily from Facebook messenger.

https://romieducation.com/2020/04/11/what-are-the-celebrities-doing-during-the-lockdown/

  • Anjana is a lawyer and excellent at her work, however, her personal life is a total mess and she tries to fix out all the issues with her ex-husband. Trying to equally balance her life.
  • Being a successful lawyer, even she deals with the misogynistic behaviour of her boss. In my working career, even I have faced the same issue where higher authorities recommended my name for promotion based on my performance, but my immediate boss suggested a male colleague of mine because he could handle it better as he will not have to deal with home responsibilities.
  • Her character throws life about how difficult it is to raise a child, being a single mother, open relationship, infidelity, adultery.
  • I just loved her dress sense along with her makeover and lip-shades.

This is a complete entertainment during the lockdown. You can easily complete watching all the episode in just a days time.

Apart from the characters, you will love the editing, story-plot, sudden change of emotions in the storyline.

It’s a complete binge time for girls. You can rejuvenate your girl gangs memories while watching it and miss your friends.

Four more shots is bold, witty, fun to watch, delightful, glamourous, it gives you a message between all the glamour and shines of life.

Cinematography is very good.

While you are sitting at your homes you will be happy to virtually tour Istanbul, Jaipur, Goa and even you will love them to watch walking freely on streets and spending time in bars.

The web-series will remind you of FRIENDS as well. Just the coffee shop turned into a bar.

The series will make you miss your sleeping over at friends place, gossip and sharing.

Make you miss your friends and recollect the memories when they were with you during your wedding.

It will make you miss and encourage to plan a trip after things get normal.

Do you want GST-Free on Corona-Fighting items?

I found the trending hashtag on Twitter which is #GSTFreeCorona so I thought to check and find out the origin.

On Saturday, the Indian youth congress advised, requested and urged the central government to waive off GST from medical equipment like ventilators, medicines like paracetamol, hand sanitizers, PPE, masks and other lifesaving drugs until the time, the country is fighting with the pandemic.

As I found the hashtag on Twiter, I was surprised to see so less number of likes, comments and retweets on the post. Just like me, others were also laughing on the same.

Vaibhav Walia mentioned that:

If the govt. agree to our demand of #GSTFreeCorona

Masks will become 5% cheaper for people

Sanitizers will become 18% cheaper for people.

Gloves will become 12% cheaper for people

PPE kits will become 12% cheaper for doctors and medical staff.

Even people like us, who are inspired by his English-diction got inspired by Vaibhav and tweeted:

This is a totally legitimate demand. Shocking the Govt would seek to make money off these indispensable essentials in the midst of a pandemic. I support #GSTFreeCorona-fighting items.

Shashi Tharoor

Even the media has no interest in writing articles or blogs about the opposition’s initiative apart from Business Standard.

Let’s find out the Relinquish Tax (GST, IGST & Custom-Duty) on the essential products to Restrain/Cure of Covid-19.

FCovid-19.

Do you really agree with this tweet?

Even if the world is about to end, do you think someone will give his valuable vote to Rahul Gandhi?

So let’s find out if Modi government has ever considered or issued GST-Free in any compliance.

  • Government has extended the date of filing GST returns to businesses.
  • Relief from penalty and fine.
  • Exemptions from import duties.
  • The Government has also decided that the due date for issue of notice, notification, approval order, sanction order, filing of the appeal, furnishing of return, statements, applications, reports, any other documents, the time limit for any compliance under the GST laws where the time limit is expiring between 20th March 2020 to 29th June 2020 will be extended to 30th June 2020.
