Will there be another lockdown in India?

22 Apr

Beyond The Line

In a country like India imposing another countrywide lockdown is highly unlikely but states may impose statewide limitations depending on the total number of infected people in that state. For ex – Delhi has been put under lockdown for a week i.e. from 19th April, 2021 to 26th April, 2021.

“Lockdown is a term coined for the developed countries!”

Strict lockdowns in countries where a significant share of the population is poor are likely to have more severe consequences on welfare than in richer countries.

Are lockdowns a sustainable model for the developing countries?

No, they are not. Here I would like to point out the example of India. Last year a lockdown was imposed by the government of India in March. It surely provided motivating results as far as curbing the transmission was concerned but millions lost their jobs overnight.

Bolsonaro Gets Covid After Downplaying its Impact on Brazil

21 Apr


SAO PAULO/BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Tuesday he tested positive for the novel coronavirus after months minimizing the severity of the pandemic and defying medical experts, even as the virus killed more than 65,000 people in his country.

The right-wing populist gave the news to reporters at his official residence standing just inches away from him, adding to criticism of his cavalier approach to the outbreak in Brazil, the world’s worst outside the United States.

Even as he announced his infection, the 65-year-old former army captain dismissed the dangers of the virus and credited unproven treatments for his mild symptoms, echoing his political role model U.S. President Donald Trump.

“If it weren’t for the test, I wouldn’t know the result. And it turned out positive,” he told the television cameras, adding he had started to feel sick on Sunday and grown worse on Monday, with a…

It’s hard to reckon that the men in our society, could also be potential victims of assaults, tortures, defamations, false accusations, and wrongful convictions. Why? Because India is still a majorly patriarchal society where men hold the baton, unfortunately. It is, therefore, unsettling to agree that these men could be vulnerable too. The thoughts of these men being oppressed rather than being the oppressor don’t ring a bell in our society.

The Reverse Theory – The 498a and Dowry Prohibition Act

The 498a clause that dealt with ‘matrimonial cruelty’ was added to the IPC in 1983. Over and above the Dowry Prohibition Act, that already existed. Victims of dowry harassment and assault, therefore, had a strong legal option to knock off their suppressors. Women, who decide to fight back, could access strong legal tools to literally squash their suppressors.

I just realised my days are determined and lead down paths from the feedback by my readers and followers around the world, like you. So thanks for the input.

All your comments and feedback encourage (greatly), uplift and even inspire me to follow “this road less travelled”.

I love my days “interacting with you’ guys and gals’ (good people)

<strong>Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials ¦and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.</strong>
