Covid19 — An ‘out of the syllabus’ question for one and all
At one end of the spectrum, the white collar class, whose lifestyle has become an albatross around their neck, have been complaining about salary cuts — how will I now pay the EMI of my SUV and Duplex, how will I manage the fees of my kids whom I send to IB schools. Now how will they keep up with the Joneses?
At the other end of the spectrum, the ‘ no collar ‘ walking class who are getting crushed by trucks on highways on their way back home — 70 years of independence and this class still struggles for its place under the sun. They are the migrant workers — the hearts and lungs of our factories — we are skeptical about their returning to the villages lest they never return back to be cogs in the wheels
You can rant about the inefficient politician on social media but remember he/she also is caught on the wrong foot — his USP is to polarize people along caste, creed, religion — this Covid19 is an óut of the syllabus’question for him. So for the babus, who never studied Covid19 in their history textbooks en route cracking the UPSC exams
If the politician were the typical HR, he/she could have asked the recruitment consultant to furnish CVs of administrators with relevant Covid19 experience , but sadly there are none in the market — it’s a unique, unparalleled situation and no one has faced it before
Novartis CEO says a vaccine that is properly tested and can be administered to millions, is 2 years away
What times we live in
130 crore Indians cant sit and eat — even if the Waqf Boards, Temples, Gurudwaras and Churches were to open their treasuries
Maybe the only way forward is to look within and pray !!
