Symptoms… Symptoms… more Symptoms

July 4, 2020

As the lockdown continues in its various forms and formats, and as COVID-19 changes its strains so also its symptoms, it’s turning people into hypochondriacs — worried about every itch, snitch and sneeze.  Initially, we were told to look out for chronic dry cough, followed by fever and then difficulty in breathing — very obvious…

FM-in-waiting…forever?

May 24, 2020

In a recent interview on a TV channel Dr. Subramanian Swamy, economist and BJP Member of Parliament, reiterated his opinion that this Government had no economic policy, does not know what it is up against and warned that the Indian economy would crash like 1930’s United States if cash is not put in the hands…

COVID Wedding and After

May 10, 2020

Life has become austere, especially weddings. COVID-19 has taken us back to 1960s India when Lal Bahadur Shastri chose to impose rationing and limiting guests at events. Just like how today Government allows no more than 50 guests at a wedding, back then only 25 guests were allowed including the hosts! So apart from the…

Alconomics: Hic…Hic…Hurray!

Indian States are addicted to alcohol. If they don’t sell enough of it, they suffer financial withdrawal symptoms. That is why our CM and also the CMs of other States requested the Prime Minister to lift the ban. And it seems their wish has been granted. Hic… Hic… Hurray! Now here is the irony. Just…

Covid Symptoms and Humour

April 19, 2020

As the lockdown continues with the ever-increasing list of symptoms for COVID-19, most of us are sure to second guess and even panic at least once during the lockdown. Initially, we were told to look out for chronic dry cough, followed by fever and then difficulty in breathing. Then suddenly diarrhoea was declared a symptom….

Cure is in Nature

April 11, 2020

Nature creates, nature cures, nature destroys. We better save nature if we want to save ourselves. Because nearly half of all human pharmaceuticals are originally derived from natural sources and we humans by systematically destroying more and more species of plants and animals are also destroying nature’s medicine cabinet. Since the past few weeks, a…

COVID-19 Effects

April 4, 2020

Lights out, lamps on… and the plan? We have another request from our Prime Minister. First we clapped for 5 minutes at 5 o’ clock, next we have to light lamps for 9 minutes at 9 o’ clock. What next? May be, chant for 10 minutes at 10 o’ clock… for positive energy? Indeed, collective…

Finally, our Prime Minister spoke. And it was a damp squib. It left us wanting, wanting something more.  Ever since the 8 pm address of November 8, 2016, the night of demonetisation, any address by the PM at 8 pm makes people anxious. As the March 19, 2020, address was announced, some people went out…

Namaste and keep distance please !

March 14, 2020

For the past few weeks having been told not to touch my face I have started behaving like cricketer Krishnamachari Srikkanth — contorting my face, as I am unable to scratch my eyes, nose or face when it itches. I also feel like putting a sticker ‘Keep distance’, like they have behind lorries as we…
