Lockdown should be lifted with required measures


It was good decision that Indian prime minister Narendra Modi ji has imposed lockdown throughout the country in view of Codid19 pandemic. It has helped the slow down the disease growth. It has instilled discipline and social distancing among the citizens. It has averted a loss of life.

However the lock down has also caused a lot of suffering to middle class people, poor families and business owners. And it has impacted the economy heavily too. But we, as a nation needs to make some compromises considering the loss of life that the disease would have caused without the the nationwide lockdown that Modi government has imposed.

Today our beloved prime minister Modi ji will address the nation again at 10 AM to announce the further steps. It is widely speculated that he will announce the extension of the lockdown, pssoibly with a few relaxations. In the prevailing situation, the whether to extend the lock down or not is a tough decision for any government to make.In my opinion, the lockdown should be lifted with some measures like banning the social gatherings. Now all the people are equipped with the basic knowledge about the preventive measures. It’s now the individuals’ responsibility to take care of their health and follow preventive measures like social distancing, using masks, gloves, sanitizers etc.Every action comes with some cost. We need to have a balance.I suggest the following:
1) Lockdown should be lifted after today, the 14th April 2020.
2) All the economic activity should be restored with a few exceptions.
3) All the shops and malls should be opened, lest the small businesses and dependent workers and families don’t have to starve or get into the burden of debts or losses.
4) All the social gatherings, meetings, conferences should be banned.
5) All the public meetings should be conducted using online video conferencing tools.
6) All the schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutes should remain closed. Educational activities should be done using online classes.
7) Movie theatres should remain closed.
8) Pubs, discos and all other entertainment activities should be closed.
9) Social activities, parties, gatherings should banned till the situation gets into control.
10) Public religious activities must be strictly prohibited.
11) All the mosques, churches, temples, guru dwaras etc must be closed for public.
12) Everyone must wear masks and gloves every time they step out of house.
13) Everyone must sanitize themselves before they step out of and after they reach back homes.
14) Online deliveries should be restored.
15) All the business/economic activities such as shops, manufacturing and other industries should be restored with the exceptions mentioned above.
16) Agriculture sector should be boosted.
17) Supply chain systems and transportation of all the goods should be restored to the normal.
18) Public transportation such as buses, trains, flights should remain closed.
19) Private transport should be restored. Rental taxi services including bikes should be restored.

There is a price that we have to pay for everything. But continuing the lock down in the present situation will cause more suffering to the nation than lifting it.

Special Status to Andhra Pradesh

Special Status for Andhra Pradesh

While dividing Andhra Pradesh into two states (Andhra Pradesh and Telangana), congress government has done lots of injustice to the divided Andhra Pradesh against the will of the people; It was done very rudely and undemocratically against the democratically elected assembly’s resolution.  It is unfortunate to see that “honest” and “corruption-free” BJP too was involved in this gruesome crime for its petty political gains. Why is Modi’s BJP government refusing to give the much-deserved special status and other supports to Andhra Pradesh? Shame on Narendra Modi and Venkaiah Naidu. Better late than never. At least now they must acknowledge the fact that they have done severe damage to AP, declare special status to AP and take speedy measures to rectify.

Sri Sri Ravishankar on Raksha Bandhan

Golden Moments Of A Blissful Sharing.. Raksha Bandhan

Dear friends, Wish you a very happy Rakhsa Bandhan. Here is what my guru Sri Sri

Ravishankar’s wisdom

“This full moon is dedicated to the seers — the rishis. It is also called the raksha bandhan.

Bandhan means bondage, raksha means protection. A bondage that protects you.

Your bondage to the knowledge, to the master, to the truth, To The Self, All Saves You. A Rope Can Be Tied To Either Protect Or Strangle You. The Small Mind And Mundane Things can strangle you. The big mind or knowledge saves you. Raksha bandhan is that bondage that saves you.

You are bound by your bondage to the Satsang. Your bondage to the master, to the truth, to the ancient knowledge of the Rishis is your savior.

Bonding is essential in life. And let the bonding be divine in a life free from bondage.”

Question: Who is an atheist?

Sri Sri Ravishankar: One who has a concept of God.

Question: What is peace?

Sri Sri Ravishankar: Undivided mind.
