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.

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/

The blog has become too long so allow me to share the remaining part in the next blog.

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!!.

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.

https://romieducation.com/2020/04/05/ranbirs-family-body-shamed-alia/

  • 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.

Feeling lonely during lockdown?

Are you staying all alone in a city for your job and suddenly the country went to lockdown. You cannot go outside, no office, no more hanging out with friends, the whole day you spend your time playing ludo, pubg and watching shows on Netflix, Amazon prime, youtube, Hotstar, feel like you are locked up in a luxurious jail?
Some might feel the same loneliness ever with their families, people all around but no-one to sit and relax, share your feelings and express.

Here’s a story:


Shweta after her marriage shifted to another city with her husband. She left her family, friends, the local places, markets, colony, society and vibes from her places which made her feel homely.

She was very excited about her new life. She was ready to explore an entirely different place and diverse culture. With her open heart, she was willing to build her own family and mould herself into a new lifestyle.

Initial days, were like a fairy tale. She arranged and decorated her new flat. Now it was her home, tried enchanting recipes, enjoyed shopping household products and loved to wait for her husband.

Everything was fine but after some time she started to miss her own self. She was a girl who had lots of close friends. A working and independent girl who had a busy lifestyle. A target to achieve and a routine to follow.

From client meetings to office gossips, talking with her colleagues or hanging out with besties she started missing all.

Suddenly, she started to feel lonely and even her husband couldn’t feel the hollowness she is dealing in her life.

A city where she knows the only person. Out of so many faces, she recognises only one. Out of so many locations, she has an apartment where she can sit and look outside. The only view, she looked every day we’re a few buildings and trees from her window.

She was feeling as if she’s trapped in a cell, she wished to be the girl she was earlier. She can open the gates of her cage but don’t know where to fly.

This is life, it’s difficult to adapt and your sacrifices won’t be acknowledged.

Shweta will adapt and get accustomed to this life one day.
