The current situation in the country is grim, however things aren't as bad as most people are making it out. Things are slowly and steadily looking up, strict lockdown enforcement has reduced the spread of the pandemic. However lockdown cannot be a solution in a country like India. Unlike first world countries where people unemployed due to lockdown enforcement are duly compensated, such is not the case in India. Lockdown is not the solution, prevention and due vaccinations are!
What we fail to realize is that the actual stats paint a completely different story, when compared to the fear and panic that is being spread by the Indian and International media.
still has one of the lowest deaths per population worldwide, and this is when deaths due to cardiac arrests and all other ailments are being attributed to Covid-19. To call the Indian media shameless and negligent would be an understatement so akin as to the specific gravity of a neutron star material. When programs pertaining to educating the masses should be broadcast on a mass level, all that is being propagated is fear and hysteria. People are gullible and easily fooled by the mass panic and fear mongering propagated in the media. I guess, seeing multiple burning pyres on the banks of the Ganga, at Varanasi and Kanpur makes for a great picture for selling the tragedy unfolding in India. USA and Brazil individually have double the deaths of India, France has half the number of Indian deaths, inspite of having 0.05 times the population of India. Have you seen pictures of mass burials at France and USA? Meanwhile we have a so called journalist, who is actually a pathetic excuse of an human being, dubbing Lucknow as Lashnow!
It so happens that even this site has been infected with this disease of creating hysteria. I just saw a post from a member who wants all trains to be shut down for a whole year! Indian railways is the lifeline of the nation, and the national transporter in chief. Given the fact that how irresponsibly some chief ministers behaved last year and continue to behave, we don't want the situation of yesteryear to repeat again. We don't want migrants forced to walking thousands of kilometres, to reach their homes, we don't want little girls having to ferry their sick fathers, for thousand kilometres under the scorching sun of Indian summer. No Trains, especially the long distance trains should continue running, shut down the intercities, but the long runners should continue to run!
Finally my point is , don't fall for the mass propaganda. Switch off your television sets and spend time with your family. With the necessary precautions we will soon come out with our heads held high. These racist 'gore langurs' cannot digest the fact that a brown skinned country that is supposed to be a third world country, is actually doing far better than them, inspite of having multiple disruptive elements flouting the prescibed protocols.
