Classic instance of indian supply chain.
Ordered some ayurvedic medicine from coimbotore.
The parcel reached bangalre four days back and did not get delivered.
Daily follow up only got an excuse citing corona.
After threat ....police etc he promised would deliver same day.
Then got delivery boy"s details
It turned out thst he was an auto driver who did delivery after 10 pm
He landed after 11 pm to deliver in his auto
I felt very bad. Someone working so late on sundry job due to down turn.
Corona downturn makes people odd jobs for a better living.
I gave him some hundreds .for the trouble he took to deliver the parcel.
I wish normal life returns fast ending the misery and hardships of have nots

from oct first. Valid for one year.

Collecting medicines from chemists over the counter has become difficult.
All are extra careful , ask for doctor prescription. Doctors consult mostly online due to corona and visit hospitals rarely.In hospitals there are only interns.
Only pray God and do not fall sick .requiring medication.
No of corona cases are leap frogging. We read stories of celebrities dying every day
It appears so unreal. It is reaching epidemic proportions. Where did india go wrong in treating corona. We shut down early .Yet we sre in a mess

Digital gadgets to monitor health status at home during lockdown is inevitable! But it could drive you mad!

I have Accu - Check glucose meter - Dr Morepan digital BP Monitor - Digital Thermometer and Pulseoxy meter. I wonder if they give correct readings acceptable to standard biomedical normal range! Corona lock down is forcing many to go for them - When BP was recorded on the monitor I was shocked to see 220/ 154 - I rushed to Apollo to see my doctor - His mercury manometer shows 170/ 98 . for which I was taking Arbital 40mg twice day for the past 2 years He reassures me and prescribed some more drugs and meet him after 1 month. Self medication is dangerous but monetering BP sugar etc is inevitable during this lock down - seems to give wrong readings and anxious moments!

its not that hard to make veg biryani.
you can see the videos of Vahchef- VahRehVah

he has great recipes, i just omit the onion/garlic and i add more ginger instead or some nutmeg shavings.

Today my digital thermometer reads in Celsius I am used to F reading ! I don't know how the setting was changed There is only one button and gadget and I know I have to meddle with that to change the setting-After half an hour struggle I found how to reset it - a long press on the button will do that!

Medkcines prescribed in north india is not a ailable in south.
I talked to my chemist to what I wanted from delhi.
I asked him about covona in delhi
He says to keep away .from delhi.
He dispenses medicines and hre knows bestthe ground situation
So remote managing my flat getting my water meter reinstalled , getting home cleaned and tending to the plants .
Situation is still worse in chennai

One resident died in my block of flats
My tenant went off to coimbotore to his home there out of fear .
When will this end?
All are waiting for antidotes and natural tapering off .
It might take a few months I guess.
All want normality.

Stock market crashed yesterday .Nifty came down to 11200 from 11600.Bank shares collapsed by 5 to 8% IT shares dipped a little.
China did nuclear testing leading to panic.
Some medical shares were stable.
Signals from Nasdaq were not positive.
It is a bit depressing.
One wakes up to only bad news everyday.
Watching IPL cricket from dubai with players playing to empty stands is humourous
Who wants this farce? Only commercial reasons.
TV is only broadcasting SSR death probe and drug crack down by police.
It appears most film stars consume drugs.

Bills passed by parliament on farm reforms is inviting both criticism and applause.
It gives small and marginal farmers direct online access to market bypassing commission agents and mandis. State govts which levy mandi tax lose revenue and commission agents their living.
It gives MNCs direct access to farmers produce.whether farmers will gain by this is to be seen.

even though here the situation is very much under control with a very low infective rate but still life isnt like before.
its like living sans freedom with so much rules and protocol to follow.
I can understand how much we would want "normal" to return but some part of me also feels that the world could be "over-reacting"..cos we cant hide forever..we have to learn to live and know that we could die..its as if we need to embrace the potential death waiting at every step.

This virus is here to stay and not going anywhere..its like how influenza and other viruses are still around.

I have a feeling that corona has been over hyped.In rural areas people are going about their normal lives .
Most treat corona like normal cold or flu and take aspirin or crocin.
Most doctors have vanished from rural areas valuing their own lives.
India is lucky.Our rural areas are least affected. We had a good harvest in rabi season and good rains for fesh sowing in kharif season.
India's GDP is entirely because of agriculture as manufacturing and services have collapsed.leading to unemployment and urban folk fleeing to villages in interior. A good percentage may not return to city again

India's supply chain has partially collapsed.
Supply demand mismatches are becoming more common.
For any item one has to approach four or five online sites to get what one wants. Items either are in short supply getting rationed or not available
So getting a particuler brand of any item is difficult.One looks for alternatives all the time.
One always pays more online.

I consider myself lucky.
I am in touch with both urban and rural folks.So get to know what is happening in both metros and deep interior villages.
You know those in interior villages or remote places like Mizoram or other north east states or in krishnagiri dharmapuri districts are far
more happy than urban people in delhi or pune.
They are tension free breathe fresh air and less prone to anxiety .and depression.

In top hospitals in bangalore you are services only by nurses And resident doctors who are interns
Specialista are available only online and interns contact them for advice when they get a patient for treatment.
These hospitals charge a bomb and give shabby treatment charging big sums.Corona gives them the liberty to do what they like with patients
Many die because of lack of care there.
Only the easily treatable escape live from these hospitals.

Some one of relatives took the heart patient to one of the renowned hospital in Banglore this month,
She was attended to only after a lapse of 2 days for want of doctors, and only interns seemed to
have attended her. She died .None is allowed to visit the patient during treatment and we are in dark as to what actually happens .Hippocratic oath not withstanding.Buyer beware concept alone seems
satyam,kjanam and anantham.
