Why this hue and cry about latest wave of corona.?
During first wave last year it is urban slum dwellers and have nots getting affected

In the latest wave the elite are becoming affected.
So things are getting blown up more than before
Apartment complex residents are getting vaccinated at doorstep.
Those with corona are only home quarantied.
I have a family in 7th floor home restricted.In lift one has to be extra carefull
Maids and cooks are extra checked at gate of apt. complex
Many house helps have left for villages as they feel the pinch of downturn.
So many women both housewives and working women are forced to cook themselves.
When support systems fail working women feel the pain
MNC employees are getting hurt as they show
no mercy and over work their staff.
Govt needs to regulate MNC in india.
They do in india what they would not dare to do in western countries.
The layoffs are hurting .

Western media sre blowing up the indian corona wave and collapse of health care system.
FII are withdrawing their money from indian stock market.Domestic institutions like LIC are buying up shares at rock botom prices to prop up the market.
The brave with strong heart can inv est in shares and make a killing.
Since industries are not doing well GDP may come down but indian agriculture will cushion the impact of slow down
Though prices are going up due to food inflation
rationing system is smooth
Well off have no worries. Everything is available ar a slightly hiher price
Companies are offering higher discounts to sell consumer discretionary products.So one can buy AC Frig and expensive mobiles on discount.
Actually it is good life for elites but for corona related issues

When the tsunami struck in 2004, poor people (mostly fisher folk) who had their huts on the beaches were rendered homeless. Tiruvanmiyur, Chennai is one such place and a very elite area with only a few hundred metres separating splendid apartments from the huts. The poor people who lost their homes felt that the apartment dwellers were indifferent to their plight and they became violent. The situation could have become very serious but for timely police intervention followed by relief measures arranged by volunteer groups.

The corona could blow over to deluxe apartments in a very different form. All people who are in a position to help should get in touch with voluntary organizations and contribute what they can.

Many in the country take pride in being poor and living off govt doles or many voluntary group money. These voluntary groups collect money from agencies abroad propagating religion other than hinduism. Voluntary groups live off money from abroad or money collected as donation from gullible.
Daily I find many with receipt books trying to extract money .If you have no job floating a NGO is the best way to make a good living

Election time is the best time for the economy
Lot of foreign and unaccounted money gets spent on election material meetings and paid crowds. In fact there is economic boom now with four state elections .Winning candidates recover the money when they use their power after election to award contracts and to bestow favours

Curfew back in karnataka from tomorrow night
Tamils in TN have a day to return to bangalore from TN.
I do not know how much it can stop the spread of corona.
Only if all use masks and practise social distancing there is hope.
Otherwise we may end up like delhi or mumbai

Bjp ruled states are managing corona well
No shortage of medicines or essentials
BBMP the local municipal set up is delivering vegetables at apartment gate at reduced prices
Online sites like amazon or bigg bazar are making supplies efficiently.
I find difficulty only finding postal services.Forced to use private couriers .A bit expensive.
Hospitals manage patients well .
Only emergencies are managed by ward boys and interns.
Specialists stay home .T hey give online directions.
They charge a bomb
1600 to 2000 rs for online consultation
There is no shortage of these specialists though.
They play safe , recommend a lot of tests before prescribing anything.
Once one is in medical cycle one ends up with lot of expense and minimal relief

Bjp ruled states are managing corona well
Such tall claims cannot be accepted in toto.

For example, take this State, where there was no election recently, but it is reported that there is exponential rise in corona virus cases across the State and adding fuel to the fire is shortage of beds, shortage of ventilators, shortage of Oxygen, etc etc

There is lockdown for 14 days across the State from Tuesday !!

It is reported that well managed State has another biggest single day spike of 34,804 new COVID-19 cases, taking the total caseload to 13.39 lakh, while 143 related fatalities pushed the toll to 14,426, the Health department said on Sunday. Bengaluru Urban alone accounted for 20,733 cases.

Some jumps in haste to declare biased judgement while the actual ground realty is quite grim.

Lot of relief materials from wester countries ,US gulf is pouring in . Armrd forces are roped in for movement of supplies and setting up of covid treatment hopitals in delhi and some other places.
Slowly india is getting its act together.
Vaccination is in full swing
Supply gaps are getting attention.
In a couple of weeks I hope state and the centre will coordinate smoothly for treatment and relief
India has sufficient goodwill to get support of world powers.

If BJP was capable then it would not be spreading in Madhya Pradesh

If the other Party was capable in then it would not be spreading in Chhattisgarh

If the Ruling party was capable, then it would not be spreading Maharashtra

If the AK party was capable, then it would not be spreading in Delhi, the thread opener need not have come over to Bangalore seeking safety

If the Ruling party of was capable, then it would not be spreading in UP

What is the case of US…..? The world learnt lot of lessons during Coronavirus Outbreak in the U.S

Why it spread like anything at Sweden, Greece, Belgium, etc..???

Some crave to jump into issues heart first – mind later. LOL

It is only a relative comparison.
Bangalore is far better than delhi or mumbai
If one is in an apartment complex managed by someone with politcal connection all facilities become available.We get vaccination at doorstep.
Anyone with covid gets isolated at home itself.
Top hospitals accept residents on priority .
Being in an elite society has its plus points.
It so happens that it is a bjp ruled state

Many of the residents are working for mncs or big four IT..IT majors have got their employees and their families vaccinated on priority irrespective of age.
Some global MNCs are helping to relocate their employees in another country.Many hold dual citizenship.It helps them to go to another country if there is a crisis.

Since many earn big money they get maids and cooks paying them much more than the market rates. But they insist on timeliness and efficiency in return.
Most house helps get sundays off
What more can they ask for?

Admtting children to school is a major concern.
Most would like proximity and education which makes it easy to go to get schooling in any other country .Most do not mind the higher expense if it is an international school .State board or central schools are av oided.Most go for ICSE .
In the process most get into english language scbools and kids can speak in mother tongue only home.

The Delhi high court on Thursday asked the Centre why Madhya Pradesh was allocated more oxygen than what was demanded while Delhi's demand was not met. "We are not saying that people in the other parts of the country should die. But if the demand of a particular state is x, then why did you give it x+y? Why don't you give y to Delhi?" a bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli observed. The court, however, clarified in its order that it's not making any finding and it would be done only when the Centre has given its submissions.


The court was told that Madhya Pradesh was allocated 540 MT oxygen while it demanded 445 MT. Maharashtra was allocated 1661 MT, while the demand was for 1,500 MT.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said the Centre will respond to the court's query and will give the reasons for giving more oxygen to Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. He said there are other states, including Gujarat, which have been allocated less than the demand.


As the high court was hearing a case related to the Capital's oxygen shortage, it asked the police to release oxygen cylinders and Remdesivir they seize as they can be used in the treatment of Covid-19. The police should not seize cylinders from individuals as they may have bought them at an exorbitant price in an emergency situation, the judge said. "Whenever any seizure is made, the IOs (investigating officers) should immediately inform the DCs (deputy commissioners) and also ascertain the genuineness of medicine. The medicine should also be immediately put in a refrigerated environment. We also direct the Delhi Police to not seize any cylinder or medicine from patients or attendants. It goes without saying that Delhi Police would be bound to conduct an investigation with the cooperation of the public at large," the court said.



Essential medicines and oxygen cylinders cannot be kept as 'case properties' and instead should be put back into circulation, the court observed.

Being in an elite society has its plus points.

Being as an elite, has its minus points too which one cannot be overlooked

COVID-19 has its impact on elite

With the pandemic spreading, it is reported that the lawyers Offices are attracting clients more particularly the elite ones for consultation to write last will and testaments, estate planning and details about bequeaths

It is reported that they are more worried about both mortality and wealth erosion.

Wealthy are reported to be breaking their head to make sure that those they want to take care of do not suffer.

It is said that some of the elites worries about business losses and stock-market volatility as both have led to many more wealthy seniors writing their wills as well as revisiting earlier plans after Covid-related wealth erosion.

They seemed to have felt the urgent need to be well prepared with a documented and updated family will.

They are NOT definitely relaxed

It is said that restrictions in the parts of the country took a toll on Dallal Street and Investors were reported to have lost several crores during the session.

Fear of inevitable is compelling many to plan the succession, which preferably should be done in good times when there is enough time to plan it.

Some seemed to have realised that the absence of a will can causes great inconvenience to their family members

India’s rich are really busy in completing this exercise with great urgency

Thank God, there are sections which really enjoy their peaceful life without any such worries even in times of crisis like this.

Some wealthy families trying to flee the country by private jet

One-way economy-class trips to Dubai are going for the equivalent of more than 10 times the regular price.

And that shows how desperately people are trying to get away.

Thank God, there are sections which really enjoy their peaceful life without any such worries even in times of crisis like this.

They are blessed in deed.

There is no glory in being poor
Many like to boast about their poverty as something holy.
They wait for doles from govt and other agencies.
India is full of such people.
Politicians live off them and make them their vote banks.
Our economic management makes possible breeding more of such types.
The gap between rich and the poor is only widening.
Any economic downturn is a blessing for the political class..It is a golden chance to increase their vote bank as more fall below poverty line

It is a misconception that indian stock market is not doing well.While there is a small downturn it is considered the best time to buy quality stocks .
Pharma shares are doing well because of covid.
FMCG is getting advantage of captive home delivery. Supply chain shares are up.
Our farm sector is largely unaffected.by covid.So minimum growth is assured.Only some industrials are taking a hit with shut down and lay off.
IT and work from home is catching up to spur growth.
Only rupee is weakening against dollar.So it might help exports.
