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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

टीएमसी द्वारा प्रसारित बैठक के वीडियो को देखने और आर्थिक समय पर लेख पढ़ने के बाद, हम यह मान सकते हैं कि लॉकडाउन दो सप्ताह तक बढ़ सकता है।
सरकार की प्राथमिकता प्रत्येक जीवन को बचाना है”।
लेकिन हमें COVID-19 से लड़ने के लिए सिर्फ लॉकडाउन से ज्यादा हथियारों की जरूरत है।
आइए मोदी की तालाबंदी पर शेखर गुप्ता की राय पढ़ें।
लगभग तीन हफ़्ते पहले जब भारत ने चुनिंदा रूप से परीक्षण करना शुरू किया, तब उन्होंने पाया कि विदेशों से आने वाले कई लोगों को उनके परिवारों के साथ सकारात्मक परीक्षण किया गया था, जिन्होंने भारत को इस तरह की कार्रवाई करने के लिए चिंतित किया।
कोई बड़ा या व्यापक परीक्षण नहीं था, पाकिस्तान की तुलना में अन्य देशों की तुलना में भारत का परीक्षण बहुत कम था, जिसकी आलोचना हुई।
यह भारतीय लॉकडाउन दुनिया में सबसे गंभीर है, अर्थशास्त्री ने ऑक्सफोर्ड में एक समूह द्वारा किए गए अध्ययन के आधार पर एक चार्ट बनाया, जिसमें COVID-19 के जवाब में देशों को गंभीरता सूचकांक पर रखा गया था।
भारत दुनिया में चार्ट में सबसे ऊपर है, जबकि भारत लॉकडाउन की तीव्रता के अनुसार चार्ट में सबसे ऊपर है, दूसरी तरफ भारत चार्ट के निचले भाग पर था जब यह जीडीपी के प्रतिशत के मामले में अर्थव्यवस्था के लिए राजकोषीय प्रोत्साहन के लिए आया था।
इसलिए गंभीरता से, भारत इटली से आगे था, लेकिन राजकोषीय उत्तेजना में, भारत सबसे कम था जिसे आप समझ सकते हैं क्योंकि पूरे समूह में भारत अब तक अन्य सभी देशों में सबसे गरीब था।
वास्तव में, भारत की तुलना में अगले सबसे गरीब देश चीन और मलेशिया प्रति व्यक्ति जीडीपी के पांच गुना हैं।
भारत जैसा कि लॉकडाउन के साथ जारी है या इसे विस्तारित करता है, यह अर्थव्यवस्था या हमारे देश के लिए जोखिम भरा है। हालांकि ऊपरी या मध्यम वर्ग लॉकडाउन को दूर कर सकते हैं, लेकिन यह गरीब और किसानों को मुश्किलों का सामना करना पड़ेगा क्योंकि अर्थव्यवस्था के इंजन बंद हो गए हैं। जितने लोग दैनिक मजदूरी पर रहते हैं उनके लिए स्थिति गंभीर है, या तो कोरोनोवायरस भूख उन्हें नहीं मार सकती है।
जैसा कि शेखर गुप्ता का कहना है कि अमेरिका के विपरीत, भारत में पैसा छापने की क्षमता नहीं है जैसा कि डोनाल्ड ट्रम्प कर रहे हैं।
मुझे समझाने दिजिए क्यों:
भारत एक स्वर्ण मानक नीति का पालन करता है, जिसके तहत प्रत्येक रुपया स्वर्ण आरक्षित मूल्य के समान मूल्य द्वारा समर्थित है, इसलिए कागज के टुकड़े को वास्तविक मूल्य देता है। दूसरी ओर, लगभग सभी वैश्विक व्यापार यूएसडी के साथ-साथ यूएस पर भी होते हैं, एक लचीली अर्थव्यवस्था होने के कारण यह गोल्ड मानकों से दूर चला गया और इसके बजाय यह ‘वैल्यू ड्राइवर’ के रूप में ‘अर्थव्यवस्था पर विश्वास’ बना रहा है।
प्रमुख हथियार या माइक्रो फोकस एक्शन और योजना को खोजने के लिए इस बिंदु पर अब हमें क्या चाहिए।
Nillie: How can a person get fed up with the limelight, I feel a star must get brighter and brighter as the […]
नियंत्रित करने की प्रमुख संभावनाएं हैं:
लॉकडाउन का विस्तार करें
लॉकडाउन को पूरी तरह से उठाएं
हॉटस्पॉट्स को सील करें और धीरे-धीरे अन्य क्षेत्रों से लॉकडाउन उठाएं।
तीसरा विकल्प एक बेहतर विकल्प हो सकता है क्योंकि कुछ कारखाने या कंपनियां काम करना शुरू कर देंगी, जैसे फार्मा फैक्ट्रियां फिर से कम्यूटेशन का कारण बनेंगी, इसलिए संचार मोड संचालित होने लगेंगे लेकिन फिर वायरस का प्रसार भी तेजी से फैल सकता है।
तो इसमें आपका क्या कहना है, नीचे टिप्पणी करें देश को, नागरिकों के विचार बताएं।
