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?

Trump

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.

Read in details: https://romieducation.com/2020/04/07/who-is-responsible-for-spreading-so-much-of-hatred-and-communalism/

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. 

Detailed blog:

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/

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.

Link: https://romieducation.com/2020/04/29/we-will-miss-you-irfaan-khan/

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/

If you are planning for Lockdown wedding here’s what you must know- Tips and suggestions

The tradition of inviting thousands of guests and spending lacs and lacs of money for the big fat wedding season is over.

We all have witnessed since centuries of trying hard to pamper the barati and yet finding it difficult to stand up to their expectations is no more a problem now.

Just wearing for posing. Mask is not a photo prop one must understand that.

As mass gatherings are not allowed, the father of the bride need not worry as he can organize the ceremony now in his budget.

Where we will save money:

  • As we can invite a limited number of guests hence people are no more booking marriage venues for marriages.
  • The old tradition of weddings on the terrace, roof-tops, verandah, lawns have returned.
  • The cost per plates and dining has reduced.
  • The cost of accommodating the guests attending the marriage has also been reduced to 1/5 ratio.
  • No need for lavish arrangements and decorating the venue for show off.

Opportunities:

  • As lockdown threw spanner for grand weddings, now you can enjoy a reasonably simple and intimate wedding.
  • People like me, who don’t like a crowded place or swaggering would enjoy spending the time with their closed one’s and cherish the lifetime moments with them.
  • Uninvited guests will not appear as it did in 3 idiots.
  • Earlier to invite the barati’s, people used to stand with flowers, pagris and welcome drinks.
  • Now you can find, the attendants are standing with sanitizers, mask and gloves.
  • Throwing flowers on the gifts that brides and grooms family members come with have been replaced with spraying sanitizers.
  • Event planners have come up with the innovative idea of a new form of marriage and involving the closest ones to be a part of the D-Day.
  • As you can see, there are multi-screen video calls, like Zoom or webinar where you can simply join and watch the entire event and shower your blessings and love.
  • Wedding planners have come up with a new form of packages also in a very budgeted price.
  • The cost starts at 1 lac-4 lac for a reasonable package.

The make-up artist is taking precautions by wearing a PPE kit. I can feel how discomforting it is.

You get a new accessory to wear.

In spite of wearing masks, wearing a protective shield is a better idea where you can display your make-up as well.

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.
