Also has anyone watched BBC's 'The adventures of Merlin"? I just started, and would like some reviews before I spend 5 seasons on it, because that CGI dragon isn't cutting it up until now.

Is Delhi flattening the curve or is the government lying about the numbers or this is just the calm before the storm?

Let's please remember that Safoora did not deserve to be out of jail because she is pregnant, but because protesting for our rights is not a crime.

NRIs and people who do not write about atrocities against minorities in India, but elsewhere think BLM means Bhakt Life Matters.

Queer people of color are the reason pride is even a thing. Too many gays forget that.

Now locust attack. Really does feel like the end of the world.

India is a fine example of how bad a crisis can go if you do not elect a government that cares, or think scientifically, or for the people. At the moment, the government feels like apathetic headless chickens, while massive migration patterns shows the loss of faith in the government. This is ofcourse with good reason due to unplanned, hurried, and oppressive imposition of policies that have only exacerbated problems for the underprivileged citizens of the country.

"More importantly, they cannot be taken off during the shift so as not to contract infection, which in turn means the doctors cannot use washrooms in that time. They will be sweating inside the PPEs, bleeding heavily but unable to get out of it till their shifts are over. Add to that dehydration — doctors try to train their bodies by not drinking water prior to their shift to avoid going to the bathroom.

I cannot bear to share the news of deaths of migrant workers, or the factory workers. why does this world keep getting bleaker?

Anyone else decides to choose the most annoying tune as their alarm? Or do I just hate myself?

From having to issue 83773773 clarifications to threatening punishment for not having installed Arogya Setu, the Govt's use of Disaster Management Act = Management Disaster

On the night of 31st December I broke my leg, retrospectively, no wonder I did not want to walk into 2020

Of course the lockdown is increased two more weeks, because rather than an increase in testing, what our nation does is conduct fly pasts, indian air force decides to air drop flowers on hospitals, and naval ships light up vessel to show thanks. What? Fuel muft mein aata hai plane ka? Ya phool?

Raise your hand if you cannot work on a chapter for more than a month and go into trash it mode? No-one, just me? Good to know *throws table*

Binge watching Doctor Who. What a commentary on social issues, but also loneliness. It gives us the word companion, not a lover, not simply a friend, but a companion, because sometimes we need other people.

What ARE people doing to get through lockdown? I'm working, working, and binging. But i'm looking for time away from the screen, and have no inspiration.

The Covid-19 lockdown may have increased the spread of other respiratory tract infections (which kill 1000 Indians per day) by forcing people to stay inside crowded and insanitary housing. Add to that the "deaths of despair" because of loss of livelihood.

Reports that say we might need social distancing till 2022, my bit is why can't pressure be put for investment in public healthcare system? Why are we building the new future based on everything should go back to as was; dis-invest in war, corporate bailouts, and environment destroyers, invest more in public health system! more ventilators, more hospitals, more public education. The system was broken, and it should be re-made as something better.

Hello people! Arnab is not the story. Here’s the story, by @reporters_co@twitter.com, in @Article14live@twitter.com. 👇🏼

RT @mitalisaran@twitter.com

Investigation by @reporters_co@twitter.com finds that ICMR scientists warned govt that would only buy time to put effective measures in place—but they still aren’t in place, & data is contaminated. So Indians have paid bitterly for indeterminable results. Govt must explain. twitter.com/reporters_co/statu

With a man* sorry. Still very surprised by that exchange. Tha kya bhai?
