  1. Hey Covid-19! says:

    Covid-19 cases keeps growing In Mysuru, Bengaluru and India-wide.
    So much for Modi’s Mann Ki Baat!!

  2. Mysorean says:

    I think it’s time to re-implement a full fledged lock down for 3 to 4 weeks. Else, the situation may continue to worsen. A strict lock down is the only option to control the spread. No point in having Sunday lock down alone as corona spread on all days.

  3. Balraj Noel says:

    Sunday lockdown is worthless, strictly 3 to 4 weeks lockdown is required to Mysuru. Else, situation will go out of control…

  4. Past Mysorean says:

    So only 3 countries have the special distinction of having the most Covid-19 cases in the world: US,Brazil and India. Other countries outside these 3 should prevent citizens from India from travelling to their countries and India as a whole should isolate itself from the rest of the world.
    No exceptions even for VVIPs like Deve Gowda!
    Every city,town and village in India should face lock downs until September end. Thanks to the State and Centre governments, who let this situation to develop by pointing fingers at other countries as your PM did the other day.
    It is the poor who will suffer, and have always suffered , as they did not matter in independent India!!

    Hello Mr Abhiram DC… its a humble requesting Sir that people staying in and surrounding Mysore are getting afraid to such an extent that death sentence is near by a day… and some of them are least bothered and taken this issue as granted… So in concern of people who are afraid n whoelse treating this as a chuck matter make a remarkable and sort this issue…

  6. Prof Govindaiah says:

    Perfectly said mr. Hey Covid.19.
    God bless you.

  7. Hey Covid-19!! says:

    @Prof and @Theekshan
    The duty of a leader in a democracy is to come out and address the nation and take questions from the journalists, so that people get reassured.
    When the Corona Virus infections are getting worse – despite the stupid FM Sitharaman who is just a cheer leader for Modi prattles that it is flattening out, which is a lie, MOdi instead of hiding in a sanitised cave in New Delhi, should come out like all other leaders of Western democracy, and talk to people in front of journalists, and take questions.
    Yeddi, is not doing the above either. These BJP leaders know the discredited Gandhis offer no challenge, and hence, there is no opposition to the government at the Centre.
    I know, Mysoreans who are simply very scared, of dying and of spending their assets to get treated in this situation. India does not have free healthcare like the West has. The DC is just an officer controlled by ministers.
    Your PM and the CM have failed miserably.

    I think People should stop believing TV and news media if they have not done so already! COVID-19 has created a whole band of laptop warriors who have nothing to do in their life due to lock-down! if the entire scientific community all over the world is struggling hard day and night for a proven vaccine but no cure yet, spreading venom on the internet using this as an opportunity to spread hatred and negativity against others seems to be the only pastime for many!
    As Sadguru once joked, about a Chaiwala in a remote village in Karnataka or Kerala,
    ‘See this man serving tea! He is very confident about How Barack Obama should handle the international affairs, He also has many good advise regarding how Sachin Tendulkar should hit the ball for any occasion! He also knows everything about all the policy changes the PM of India or Finance minister should implement to make our nation the heaven on earth!
    He is all knowing except for one! The only thing he does not know is ‘How to make a good Tea”
    This seems to be the situation with many people here! Scientific community may be able to find a cure for COVID-19 one day but the mentality of these people has no cure at all!
    Here was a message I received which is a peek at the reality! I do not want to translate it
    ಕೊರೋನಾ : ಮಾದ್ಯಮಗಳು ಸಾರ್ವಜನಿಕರನ್ನು ಕಾರಣವಿಲ್ಲದೆ ಕಂಗೆಡಿಸುತ್ತಿವೆಯೆ?*

    @Sridhar. You are on the dot! when I read some of comments by some of the readers, It reminds me of Albert Einstein’s famous quote
    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
    As Sadguru pointed out, there people are all knowing(except what they are supposed to do) and jobless( job taken away by COVID) .. a very lethal combination! We need to ignore their old brain farts as they have a need to making some contribution to the society, but have not figured out in their entire life!!

  10. Howdy Modi! says:

    Forget about other countries, it is your country that matters. Interesting about that Chaiwalla, he is from Gujarat, as a matter of fact speaking Mann Ki Baat” That was the point raised, and you confirmed!

  11. Hey Covid-19 says:

    Keep talking philosophy and other countries folks, while the Covid-19 is sweeping Mysuru and Bengaluru , as well as other parts of your country. Blaming TV news and media and point to the old adage : ” shooting the messenger”
    The quote from Einstein that best applies to your country is: ” doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”. That sums up what is happening.
    Now , Yedi, not a chaiwalla, but a khaki-clad cheddi who was wielding a stick once, , has appointed a committee to deal with the virus menace in Bengaluru in different areas. Bommanahalli is mentioned! Now, folks, along with Sadguru, Chaiwalla, you could also include Bommnahalli Kindari Jogi, when you philosophise next time! Poet Kuvempu will enjoy that joke, sorry, philosophy!

  12. Hello, hello! says:

    Mera Naam Raju, the hit song by Mukesh!!

  13. Hello Chaiwalla! says:

    Hello Chaiwalla!
    I mean the Chaiwalla referred to by one poster, the one who cannot prepare a good tea! Never heard of this nonsense, as Gujarathis for example, the community known for consuming Chai in generous quantities ,every one knows howto prepare their Chai. They do it with: dried tea leaves, hot water, sugar, boiled milk and tea spice-this recipe is the same whether Gujarathis live in Ahmedabad, Houston, London, Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, Sydney and Toronto. or whether they are Patels, Shahs or Desais
    Anyway, that Chaiwalla, who is selling Chai in the platforms of Ahmedabad railway station, seems to be well informed of the world politics: Obama, the FM Sitharaman ( well, the ex sales person in the Habitat shop in central London 3 decades ago”,who claims as finance wizard!), the budget nuances etc… Person of this nature, can always use his relative to prepare Chai , if he is busy as a commentator of world politics. May be one day, he will lead the nation too!

  14. Raju says:

    Our comments are the mirror to our mindset! Some call our PM the Chaiwala! His journey to grow to become a Prime minister of a democratic nation seems insignificant to some people! They still seem to think that his skill set and knowledge is still of a Chaiwala! USA welcomed him with Red carpet who was not even getting a visitor visa due to the crooked plot by our old PM and his gang! And him willing election 2 times defeating a grand old party seems to be nothing! Some others seem to think that he is not our PM at all! May be he was selling tea in a local railway station! Not working as a waiter in an Italian bar! Yes, if somebody had the experience in an Italian bar serving drunkards, you have the ability to run a nation for a decade muting a highly qualified economist and looting using a Harvard educated home minister. Do you think that was the way to run the nation?
    People must remember that we have a democratic system and all the commentators who are venting there frustration may be having the same opportunity to contest in the next election and defeat Modi and show us how good they are. Nobody is stopping them!
    If People think that Rahul must be our next PM and Vadra is our next FM people will elect them! Until then, you are free to burn inside with jealousy! That is an option everybody has! We always get what we deserve! after all even Rabdi deve was a CM of a state, why not these people run the nation?

  15. The lucky ones! says:

    “See this man serving tea! He is very confident about How Barack Obama should handle the international affairs, He also has many good advise regarding how Sachin Tendulkar should hit the ball for any occasion! He also knows everything about all the policy changes the PM of India or Finance minister should implement to make our nation the heaven on earth!
    He is all knowing except for one! The only thing he does not know is ‘How to make a good Tea”
    BJP members and activists who read the above, see this as the direct attack on their leader who once was a Chaiwalla, to earn his living. It is not a shame, if some one earns his living through honesty they say. We have to agree . Only a demented person and a supporter of the Gandhis would post something like that they say. This poster is an ill-educated and miserable loud mouth ,who cannot write a proper paragraph they say. Amen , we say to all of the above.
    The good and lucky ones in India ( lucky, because Covid-19 has caused mass unemployment) meanwhile, are doing their work like the tracing staff in the photograph!

  16. Howdy Modi, Namaste Trump and Putin! says:

    Mera Naam Raju! Good song by Mukesh!!
    The red Capet welcome by Gujarathis , who outnumber every other communities from India, in every Western country. The Gujarathis pooled their resources and welcomed him saying: Howdy Modi”! Trump simply used that platform to get the votes of these Gujarathis, as the India-Americans vote for the Democrat president.
    It is not ” Howdy ” Modi or “Namaste Trump” nonsense that counted as Trump has stopped the issue of work visas, and now his government is asking all foreign students, to leave the country as the universities there offer only on-line course delivery. Nearly 2 lakh Indian students will be back soon.
    That is the reality of that Red Carpet welcome!!
