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. 

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.

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.

The virus is scary but Trump’s suggestions are even scarier.

Update: Twitter on Friday has said that the video clips of President Donald Trump don’t violate the rules of COVID-19 misinformation policy.

Never thought of such a terrific idea of preventing from COVID-19 coming out from the President of such a great nation!!

Bill Bryan, Department of Homeland security presented the following measures to fight with Coronavirus. He mentioned about sunlight, isopropyl alcohol, bleach which can be used to kill the virus.

Isopropyl alcohol can clean the virus in 30 sec and bleach in 5 minutes.

To which, Trump responded. He said:

So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous – whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light and I think you said that hasn’t been checked but you’re going to test it. And then I said, suppose you brought the light inside of the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you’re going to test that too. Sounds interesting

Trump

He didn’t stop with this, he said:

And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning?

So it’d be interesting to check that.

Trump

After this, doctors and companies we’re forced to address the world.

Lysol manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser warned the world that under no circumstances the products should be administered in human body.

Even the Dettol company reacted to it and all the doctors requested and warned people, not to take advice from Donald Trump.

Let’s see how people reacted on Twitter:

To fight over religion, communalism & caste and allowing other countries to point a finger on us. Is this what we want?

This morning, I read that the US commission has raised their concerns over the way India is fighting against Coronavirus.

According to a media report, a government-running hospital in Ahmedabad has separated the infected places on the basis of religion.

On this, official Spokesperson, Ministry of External Affairs, India blasted out on USCIRF to stop adding religious colour to our national goal of fighting the COVID 19 pandemic.

As if it’s a peremptory commentary on religious freedom in India is not enough, the USCIRF is now spreading misguided reports on the professional medical protocols followed to deal with spread of COVID19 in India. It must stop adding religious colour to our national goal of fighting the pandemic and distract from larger efforts. No segregation is being done in Civil hospitals on the basis of religion, as clarified by the Gujrat Government.

Anurag Srivastava

After reading this, I have a few questions in my mind, please answer me:

Aren’t we giving a chance to other countries, to put allegation against us?

Aren’t we responsible to fight discrimination on the basis of religion?

Should not we stop discriminating on the basis of caste and creed?

Forget about this virus, haven’t we been fighting on the basis of religion earlier? This is what we are, we have been fighting for years and while this virus is killing people, no matter their caste, creed or religion.

I am a neutral person, I neither understand politics nor interested in understanding it.

Let’s read what Head of ICMR, Dr Raman GangaKhedkar tried to tell us. I am trying to make you understand on the basis of logical and scientific factors. Not on the basis of religion and politics, let me explain what’s going on, so please read and understand:

Worry is relative phenomena if you ask me the background, the first case was on 27th January today we are exactly two and half months into the outbreak, you know the population density of our country, high level of migration that we have in our country, the proportion of people below the poverty line and staying in slums if you look at the world today, they are extremely worried how India is not showing so many cases.

Raman GangaKhedkar

If you compare our country with Italy, Spain, China at this point they were in the much worse stage. We are trying to flatten the curve. If you compare India with the US, they are economically much stronger than us.

Please understand the government has taken such a brave initiate. Our country is not as economically developed as the US, Europe, China yet more than 2.5 lac people have been tested.

The government immediately shut all businesses because life is more valuable than the economy and money.

So now why are we creating such nuisance?

Let’s forget about Muslims, aren’t we Hindus discriminate and abuse on the basis of caste, creed and culture? Intact state-wise basis within our own religion?

A Bengali brahmin girl fell in love with a Bihari brahmin boy. Now, read this carefully, this is a real-life story. They tried to convince their parents to earn their blessings and get married. Though the caste is same, religion is also the same now what was the issue :

  • They are from different states
  • The neighbouring States having cultural differences
  • Bihar was a part of Bengal once as Pakistan was a part of India but the same rivalry between the Bihari and Bengali is there.

So it became a continuous process, both the parties by that I mean the boy and the girl vs parents don’t come to the mutual track, they kept on fighting, arguing & convincing.

On the other side, the wind started to blow differently, family politics began, family members started to demean and disrespect each other. They try to break the bond by any possible means be it playing with emotions, character assassination, fabricating lies, mentioning names, body-shaming and so on.

So when both the families fight, many will sit and relax and enjoy the scene, some will take advantage out of it. People start commenting on the same way the US did.

This is how today our India is fighting, let not the rest of the world takes advantage out of it.

What’s wrong with Indians?

  • Is it so difficult to understand and obey the simple rules?
  • Team of doctors and health officials were pelted stones in different parts of our country.
  • Group of Nihangs, chopped off the hand of a police officer.
  • Recently, in Moradabad, a mob of around 150 people came and started throwing stones over team of doctors, attacked the ambulance and even attacked the cops, damaging the police car and ambulance.
  • However, 17 attackers have been arrested till now.

Salman Khan message to the nation-Do or Die

Salman Khan’s first interview for COVID-19 was published yesterday. He addressed the nation and raised his concerns.

You can watch the full video on YouTube:

Link:https://youtu.be/tiQ4huz7NG4

He requested the citizens to stay at home, worship and pray at home.

Do you want to decrease the population of India starting with your own family?

-Salman Khan

He praised the doctors, bankers and all those who are working every day for us during this lockdown phase just to provide ease and support.

Let’s not fight, let’s not demean, time and again I am requesting the literates and educated mass of our society to get united and fight against Coronavirus, not with Communavirus or communa cancer.

Coronavirus-Global current update|Nihang’s case

The global confirmed cases of Coronavirus have now skyrocketed to 2,831,785 cases according to John Hopkins Coronavirus resource centre, with cases the in US and Italy outnumbering that of China. It has to be noted that it took just 1 day for the cases to increase by 0.1 million.

Confirmed cases in the US and Europe are spreading like wildfire and there seems to be no stopping to it. India which has 24000+ confirmed cases as of now is bracing for much more as the rate of testing has been increased by the government. United States, Italy and Spain are reeling under the pain of the loss of lives.

The US has passed a bill of the record $2.2 trillion to fight this, with confirmed cases surpassed 5,61,103 and around 22106 deaths.

Current cases in India as per today’s statistics is 24000+ Out of which, 5,063 have recovered.

India extended the lockdown, yet the upcoming news shows very clearly that it could have been implemented much better also it might extend.

Migrants flocking in thousands at bus terminals, having been walked for days to reach bus stands, some being run over by Trucks on road, dying of exhaustion as they walk all the way hundreds of kilometres to their natives and some surviving only on biscuits and water due to this lockdown.


The gathering of people in such large numbers, cramped in spaces and sent back to their natives such as Bihar, UP, MP and Rajasthan defeats the purpose of lockdown and increases the risk of even wider spread in states where health infrastructure is already in a dismal state. The government in the meanwhile issued numerous statements ranging from Bihar government to establish shelters over other states to Delhi government saying all migrants in Delhi are Delhiites and it is their responsibility, yet not an iota of any actions was taken. In the meantime, we see Indian again resorting to frugal yet efficient methods of combating like trains being converted to makeshift quarantine field hospitals.

Nihang’s case

This Sunday, a group of Nihangs chopped off the hand of a police officer Harjeet Singh who is an assistant sub-Inspector, injuring 3 others policemen as well.

It took 7.5 hours of plastic surgery and successfully the doctors reattached his hand. Again our doctors proved that they are the superheroes and God.

People have tweeted their opinions in this case.

Sunday’s incident of lawlessness can be attributed to the fact that the Nihangs only wish to follow orders of the Guru and perhaps consider orders from the administration an attack on their sovereignty, a scholar said.

The world is scrambling to find a cure, economies are in a dismal state, destitute having faced double whip of loss of jobs and no access to food and water. This virus does not differentiate between your economic status or stature and has not spared even the Prince and the Prime minister of Britain. The good news is that he is recovering.

Boris Johnson

The incident of Tablighi Jamaat and later on gave the pandemic a new turn in India is Communavirus. When the World is only dealing with Coronavirus, we are actually dealing with communalism and novel COVID-19 at the same time along with poverty, low economy and lots more.

Modi’s macro actions have worked, now India needs micro focus.

After watching the video of the meeting broadcasted by TMC and reading the article on economic times, we can assume that the lockdown might extend for another two weeks.

Modi said that “the priority of the government is to save each and every life”.

But we need more weapons than just lockdown to fight with COVID-19.

Let’s read the opinion of Shekhar Gupta on Modi’s lockdown.

About three weeks back when India started testing selectively then they found that many people coming from overseas were tested positive along with their families that alarmed India to take such a massive action.

There was no major or widespread testing, India’s testing was very low compared to other countries ever lower than Pakistan which led to criticism.

Shekhar Gupta

This Indian lockdown is the severest n 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.

So in severity, India was even ahead of Italy but in fiscal stimulus, India was lowest which you can understand because in the entire group India was by far the poorest of all other countries.

Must read:

In fact, the next poorest countries are China and Malaysia at five times per capita GDP than India.

India as it continues with the lockdown or extends it, it’s risky for the economy or our country. Though the upper or middle classes can overcome the lockdown, it’s the poor and farmers who will face difficulties as the engines of the economy have stopped. As many people live on daily wages for them the situation is critical, either not coronavirus hunger might kill them.

As Shekhar Gupta says unlike the US, India doesn’t have the ability to print money as Donald Trump is doing.

Let me explain, why

India follows a gold standard policy, under which every rupee is backed by a similar value of the gold reserve hence giving actual value to the piece of paper. On the other hand, almost all of the global trade happens over USD, as well as the US, being a resilient economy made it move away from Gold standards and instead make the ‘faith over the economy’ as it’s value driver.

What we need at this point now to find the major weapon or micro focus action and plan.

Also read:

Major possibilities to control, are:

  • Extend the lockdown
  • Completely lift the lockdown
  • Seal the hotspots and gradually lift the lockdown from other areas.

The third option might be a better option as some factories or companies will start fo work, like pharma factories which will again lead to commutation hence communication modes will start to operate but then the spreading of the virus can also spread faster.

So what’s your say in this, comment below. Let the nation know, citizen’s views.

Read what exactly Trump said rather than reading outlines

Sunday evening, President Trump requested to release the hold on hydroxychloroquine. Click on the link, to read in details:

https://romieducation.com/2020/04/06/trump-asks-modi-to-help/

Never thought of that by April, we will be heading to a disaster, the pandemic, Virus has already killed so many people all over the world.

According to Hindustan Times, President Donald Trump on Monday spoke of “retaliation” if India turned down his request to lift the hold on US orders.

I watched the entire video and at 30minutes 39 seconds a journalist asked the question, have a look:

Journalist: Are you worried about the retaliation to your decision to ban the export on medical goods like India Prime Minister Modi’s decision to not export hydroxychloroquine.

President Trump: 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?

Coronavirus-World in distress seeking answer from WHO & China

PART-2

To summarize Part 1,

  • The world already started to ask questions to the director-general of WHO – Dr Tedros.
  • The US has directly blamed the WHO of siding with China. 
  • China controls many votes in WHO due to its political relations with many countries who are almost dependent on China for its economic, military and political reasons. 
  • Why has not WHO, not for a single time mentioned the root cause of these viruses again emanating from these wet markets, which has been called my many institutions, research and even by Chinese citizens to be banned?

Read in details by clicking the link:

https://romieducation.com/2020/03/29/coronavirus-world-in-distress-seeking-answer-from-who-china/

Part-2 Continuous

Times have changed, and the truth is between 2002-03 and 2020, China is much bigger power, and the US is now a much lesser one. There were many warnings on these Wet markets on the basis of research of WHO itself as early as 2018 on the threat of new coronaviruses emanating from these places threatening the world as global pandemic.

What is funny that until Jan 23, WHO tweeted that there is no human to human transmission despite the fact that a Chinese epidemiologist Dr. Zhong Nanshan on Jan 20 made a statement that actually human to human transmission is possible. Note that Wuhan went on lockdown on Jan23.!!              

 Dr. Tedros himself went to China to check the facts twice, yet he found nothing wrong and in-fact praised Xi Jinping. It’s a slap in the face of humanity who rely on these institutions.

Xi Jinping

Now all this is coming back to haunt Dr. Tedros and his credibility, with demands growing for his resignation. If China found human to human transmission, why did it not inform the world pre-hand. It seems that WHO is caught in an awful situation of what science dictates and a powerful country. He came back and praised China of identifying the virus in record time. Great!! What do I do of it? The ill-informed world kept on travelling to and fro from China and especially to Wuhan which is the size and population of the likes of Delhi and Mumbai.

Speaking of dying, A German finance minister committed suicide due to financial implications arising out of this virus, global confirmed death has crossed 51,299(as per the updated report). Deaths in India due to this has crossed 53, and we all are bracing for much more.

Thomas Schaefer

In these grim situations, we as humans should maintain the ethos of humanity and help those in needs as much as possible.

Numerous countries have returned Chinese masks and protective gears claiming it to be of sub-standard quality.

In the meantime, many countries discussed better control over biological weapons and Coronavirus was mention, giving it significant traction.

It is to be noted that WHO in the reform of 2005 has the power to act on it, over questioning the states on cover-up and it can declare an international emergency even in the face of opposition, yet it did not choose to exercise them.

China, we see has become very powerful in the UN and it has the means to silence even large global institutions. It brings in money, jobs and Infrastructure. Case in point is WHO and China becoming partner in OBOR. (One Belt One Road). It is evident that there is a problem in the UN which has come out in open. China, we all know is an authoritarian state and its citizens have no right to dissent. Very bad things can happen to you if you write anything criticising the Government. To me this seems to be the mother of all problems.

A group of researchers already raised red flag saying that such an outbreak is imminent and when a new case of pneumonia came up and it did not respond to normal medicines, and a group of 8 doctors researched it and raised the alarm. A normal democratic country would have taken this seriously and sent out a larger research team. However, this is China, instead they send police to silence them, government mouthpiece started criticising them and making fun of them, until the first of those doctor’s Li Wenliang contracted the disease himself and died raising criticism from the citizens.

While the government is taking it steps to arrest this infection by taking measures never done before like ordering all bodies to be cremated irrespective of religion, which was withdrawn later.

Many responsible citizens are also coming up and helping the people in need.

Tweet at @JhaRahul_Bihar to provide support to labours. Actively helping poor people and labours by providing food and immediate assistance. Already reached and helped 1000s of labours.
