Modi Shah should keep their dirty plans aside and plan to help poor migrants who with lots of difficulties reached their house. Modi Shah should realise, poor are not interested in their hindu muslim agenda anymore.
I'm confused by the headline. This seems like a good concept for a zombie web series, and the review itself is largely positive.
You can't really take anything containing zombies seriously in the same way that you take Schindler's List seriously, can you?
Quality horror signifies the health of a film industry. Young directors can play around with special effects on a small budget, and include social allegories without alienating a casual audience. The horror genre pushes the envelope. Bollywood's pathetic performance in this field over the years has therefore been instructive. Even this effort (only the second Hindi language production involving globally popular zombies) is led by a British director.
Truly appalling. Gift her funds. Give the training to those who are actually qualified and capable of the standard needed. You cannot lead in sports by doing social service and quotas. Indias olympic deal count is testament to the calibre of what is being nurtured by the state
All Twitter warriors of the Indian Left and TMC who have giving the rest of India and the Central Government, the benefit of their wisdom about handling the worst pandenic the world has seen in a century or more: Pitiful testing per capita- lowest in the world, why no action, why a lockdown, see how poorly we plan lockdowns what can poor people do?, why end the lockdown now the cases will surge in June July and people will carry infection into the villages with its poor health infrastructure...
Now all these armchair experts are back, trying to stoke regional feelings. A pathetic bunch of experts who knew how to handle a pandemic at every stage, cannot handle a cyclone?
How did you think the NDRF get organised in time? Why are the casualties so low?
Pathetic bunch of vultures! All you can do is tug at the carcasses and keep twittering "Woe me!".
Three pertinent points erupt from this story:
1. We do not have the primary healthcare infrastructure at all. That’s why she has to travel 50km for her life saving medicines.
2. The lockdown will be counterproductive if we are unable to keep our vulnerable patients shielded, who are doomed to come out and travel.
3. The Maharashtra Municipal Corporation doesn’t give a damn to personal privacy of the patients, forcing them to disclose their medical conditions in their building’s whatsapp group!!
I hope this journalist had taken her due consent before disclosing her identity.
Thanks himanshi jangir for putting this out for the farmers community. Thanks mogamby india for sharing.
Highly incorrect article. First it is Ramzan, when you translate from Arabic to English it becomes Ramadan. It is just simple grammar, you have to refer to Arabic dictionary for this. Secondly there are many practices which pre dates Islam like hajj, sacrificing animals. And ashura is the 10th day of muharram, not ramzan. Islam is a continuation of preaching of prophets of Allah. Like Moses, Jesus, Noah and Abraham. Prophet Muhammad is the last of the messenger of Allah on earth and with him the revelation of Allah ended.
Incredibly exaggerated reporting of the damage. Trees and light poles yes - but no buildings collapsed - communities swept away. Sensationalism just to get attention.
Rohan Venkataramakrishnan has hit the nail on its head. This government is clueless about what it is doing. Forget social distancing inside the aircraft, just see the photos of passengers lining up chockablock to board the aircraft - you can be sure that if it were migrants lining to board buses and trains, the police, without hesitation, would have beaten them up black and blue.
A good article raising real concerns, which are likely to apply to all those who are fore-front of keeping nation’s wheels running amidst the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic.
Lifting of lockdown, in spurts or otherwise, should not be taken as war against Covid-19 being over. Media continues to have an important role in preparing for long haul against Covid-19. Enduring success is more likely to be achieved by community participation through involvement of local stakeholders.
On the effectiveness of disinfection by spray, World Health Organization’s Interim Guidelines dated 15.05.2020 may be taken into account.
Hi Mr. Sruthisagar Yamunan.
I agree with the question that you have asked for politicians to ask themselves. They really need to do that.
Having said that I would like to add a question here... That if the congress has so many buses available with them why haven't they been in service and carrying the migrant workers in the states governed by Congress themselves? Why take so much interest in Uttar Pradesh when their own states don't have enough arrangements?
It is human to attribute success to us and failures to others, more so in politics.Undoubtedly the world has been paying a heavy price due to the outbreak whether it is natural or man made and accidental or intentional ! Even an advanced country like the US did not seem to take it serious enough in the beginning and the delay delivered a body bow.China too on its part delayed in conveying the news and in arresting international travel when lockdown was imposed in the beginning.Now the question is to ascertain the origin and evolution of the virus in the interest of future strategies for preventing such pandemics.For this China must extend all the needed cooperation in permitting a global body consisting of experts in various fields for an in depth study. Logically if the virus’s is not man made or at least,is not unleashed intentionally, there is nothing for China to oppose such a scientific study.As many of the vital facets of the virus such as its source, mutation patterns, exact incubation period, effect of temperature , humidity etc., prophylactic or therapeutic medications are still not certain to satisfactory standards, it is in the interest of the entire world that an accelerated, exhaustive study is carried out !On the other hand, if nations go on indulging in heightened animosities, merely hurling accusations, it would be detrimental to the global interests, more so at a critical juncture like this.
The plot sounds truly engaging. Being a fan of both Irfaan and Aditya Bhattacharya, I hope this film is released soon.
Is it effective because middlemen pocket it? The reason for bringing in adhaar and ration cards etc is to see it reaches the genuine. There are repeated complaints of MNREGA funds misusef
The atmanirbhar billboard featured a 5-episode flop show that basically asked the poorest Indians to fend for themselves and not expect govt to do anything. Relief is now called entitlement that India is not entitled for.
India immediately take back their troops from the Kalapani the territory of Nepal since long back.
Wonderful work from a debutant director and equally talented actors!
Modi sent AIR INDIA flights all over the world to “rescue” stranded Indians to repatriate them but never thought of rescuing menial labourers with their young families from interstate to their native places. This was only to get international acclaim and fame but the lowly labourers inside India didn’t matter because there was no international publicity in rescuing the poor citizens.
A nice panoramic exfoliation of Mr Debes Roy's creative excellence as a writer. Hope it capture the audience of pan-India so that people of our country as well as abroad would prepare themselves to be a reader of this international writer in true sense
You are absolutely right. This is really a man-made disaster our millions of migrant workers have been been suffering since past two months. Not only the migrant workers, but also thousands of students, workers and other professionals who have gone out of their native towns/ cities, patients who have have gone to cities for treatment are also got trapped in the 'note-ban' like proclamation. It is very easy and cost nothing for those in high position and cosily perched in their glass houses to issue orders, even at god-forbidden hours. Only those who are on the street, without food and water, money and support knew, experienced the pain. To appreciate that, one needs to be humane, not enough to be just another two legged animal. Even after nearly two months, there appears no end to the travails of those who are trapped outside their home states due to the instant lockdown declaration and the centre showing just their right (and no duties) and leaving the duties to the states. And the states in turn are displaying their own discretion and leaving the sufferers still gasping.
dear author, you have double counted ~Germany,iceland,finland and new zealand~ in the second paragraph, please correct it.
I was about to buy the premium subscription for "award winning Journalism" and then i saw this
Splendid. Thank you for a fabulous article!
You should also download and see the khayal recordings from across the border on the Saarey Music app.
When Govt of India is trying to control Covid 19 spread, with its limited resources and Health workers are struggling day & night, such a comment by Indian doctor is discouraging.
Our main aim is to Control Covid 19 spread and data collection is secondary, which may help some professionals to submit their paper with analysis of this data to get one PHd.
You can keep your labor laws .
All manufacturing will move to your masters China . If not China then Vietnam , Thailand or Bangladesh .
Bye bye leftist
What’s exactly the point of this article ?
A fruitful, informative and encouraging article. Thank you for sharing it with all of us. Hope people would read it and understand the true teachings of hizmet movement and Islam
Rest in power Rizwana.
India needs many more comrades like her.
I have been inspired. I too will now write crime fiction set in London without ever visiting it. Who better than me to depict English life in all its drab pettiness.
In other news, Shah and Skarsgard looked tasty in their youth. I approve.
The Covid 19 came abruptly with its very high transmission potential (R0= 2.5) and moderate toll and gave little time to the states to have comprehensive and logical thinking. Moreover the trial lockdown followed by total lockdown 1.0,2.0, 3.0 and possibly now 4.0 selectively for red zone and containment areas) with closure of state and district boundaries restricted the choice while selecting the members for task force or think tank for Covid 19 from state capital only. So the states deserve benefit of doubt in this context. Having said this, here are some observations for your consideration.
1. Presence of experienced epidemiologist should have been the top priority and the PSM departments of medical college should have been on forefront in the battle. This opportunity is missed out. (I saw cardiologist leading the state strategy of Karnataka which appeared a lopsided and hardly rational. )
2. The Kerala with fresh experience of tackling Nipah possibly helped well to prepare a comprehensive state strategy which has fetched tangible results. Their representatives should have been part of National think tank too.
3. Largely the Dominance of clinicians in pandemic think tank rather than a multidisciplinary think tank has made frequent flip flops in national and state level guidelines/ SOPs. Nevertheless the clinicians have major role in downsizing the case fatality rate and case management of individual patient specific complication rationally.
It would have been better if the reporter first helped the family and then wrote the article. This virtue -shaming, establishment-bashing attitude helps nobody. Walk the walk, don’t just talk the talk. I am really ashamed of this pandemic opportunistic journalism in my country.
There is always a difference between a mask for medical reasons worn by all, and one worn by one gender rooted in patriarchy.
In real terms, there is nothing to revive the economy.... just an eyewash...
20 lac crore economic stimulus was expected to take in to account the unprecedented migration and extreme hardships faced by these people.It was also expected the package will bring some immediate cash relief alongwith passionate appeal by our PM to stop leaving their places.His little assurance to these people could instil a sense of security and stop exodus.
But PM chose to remain silent for these poor people and left them to die on the roads and tracks while walking hundreds of kilometers with bag baggage women and small children.
All these persons are precious voters of India but without identity.They will be trapped to vote for those people who are responsible for their plight.
Really wonderful poetry.If interested visit my poetry blog https://shreyaspoetry.blogspot.com
It is a must visit for all poetry lovers.
And yeah, 2G internet, which supposedly is being used to broadcast "hate speech and videos" (funeral videos and free speech as such), was barred until 3 pm today (24 hours ban). That's our life, Indians.
May be...Cause poor people vote against (with) note...n peoples stranded outside country must be rich relatively and they might start casting vote... May be too practical.
It is well said that there is nothing moral or immoral about taxation ! But the rationale in collection and utilisation do matter much ! With 70 paise of every rupee spent by the government coming from taxes, there is nothing wrong in levying taxes if one wants development.In fact, a day should come when we volunteer to pay tax and demand the amenities in turn ! I have been in full agreement with the writer’s opinion on the corporate tax relief. As I have been repeatedly mentioning in my comments and write ups,the step had a whipsawed effect ie.,on one hand the investment scenario did not improve and on the other, there is a huge erosion in the revenue for the government.The reason is that our present economic crisis is mainly because of lack of appetite for consumption but not that of investments.An investor invests in a venture, if there is demand.So, greater effort must be aimed at improving the appetite for demand which needs measures to boost the money in the hands of masses, if need be by infusing cash directly into their hands.Unless and until this is taken care of either by reducing the fuel bill or by controlling cost of living or by various other methods to increase savings or by incentivising spending, the chances for revival appear bleak in the near future.The policy measures of easing liquidity such as rate cuts, credit guarantees etc. act as only cosmetic measures and look theoretical rather than practical.
Killing, including animal is deplorable. But few psychic take pleasure in such stories. In Gujarat riot 2002, 756 Muslim & 285 Hindu were killed, Delhi riot 40 Muslim & 12 Hindus were killed. In 1984, 3560 Sikhs were butchered, none else was killed, in 90's tens of thousands of Kashmiri Hindus were butchered but none Muslim. Who is persecuted community? Minorities in Pakistan also face genocide in Pakistan.
All states need to do this.
