3 Would be Accidents

*******

Due to Corona, people have been without jobs, and, as such, without much cash. We shall not discuss here that people have not bothered to Save. I estimate that about 40% of Tamilians have the philosophy of: Earn it, Spend it. It burns holes in their pockets to Save.

The ‘gorement’ of India had very kindly ‘ordered’ that employers should pay their employees their salaries in advance, as advance. Too many employers claim that they have done so.

Now, to get businesses going, the owners have to get workers to come, announcing in advance that the workers will not receive salaries for an unspecified amount of time. We can understand this as the products they have generated have not been sold off.

They expect the ‘gorement’ to bail out cash to get them going. Which same,  on the one hand having given out some help ‘packages,’ – and eaten up fat commissions for same, no doubt,

– says, (without saying it aloud), that it too is short of money. Above: People waiting for a gorement prepared meal, which it calls: Over-prepared.

That the central gorement of India has collected unspecified Millions in an account called the ‘pm cares fund,’ has already helped out its cronies, who had showed it the thumb and had even given up Indian citizenship in the process, to the tune of 68,000 Crores. Rupees, of course, and one crore is ten million.

The miserable workers, who are cheated left and right with regard to their salaries, and have to pay their rents in advance, as I suppose is common the world over, decided to go back home, thus the infamous Migrants of India. …Very kindly, all of 0 rupees of the ‘pm cares fund’ have been spent in getting these Migrants home by the gorement.

A close up.

 

The central gorement has not seen fit to give the state their share of the taxes. To allay their baying, it has allowed the states to reopen the liquor shops, which bring in no mean money.

And herein starts the tale of Accidents.

I have been taking Walks in the evening. Since the liquor shops opened, Three, not one, not two, but Three bikers nearly dashed onto me.

Food Scarcity and… During Corona times

*******

This article, refers to:

https://wiangga0409.wordpress.com/2020/04/29/the-peril-of-food-scarcity/ …of Wiangga.

In India, Corona has highlighted the plight of the ‘Migrants,’ who constitute part of the Whopping (about) 93% of the population of India, being the ‘Daily Wage Earners.’

Despite Lip service on the part of the centre, not being paid, or taken care of, by way of place to stay and food, etc, the Migrants have preferred to Walk, for the Most part, distances as great as 1,100 Kms, about 675 Miles, with almost No provisions, carrying Infants in Arms.

Above: Resting.

The Toll, visible on faces.

Not allowed to go further, camping under a Bridge.

Tragically, a 12 yo Girl, having walked about a 100 Kms, died of Exhaustion and Hunger 50 Km from her destination. https://www.shethepeople.tv/news/12-year-old-migrant-girl-dies-walking-reach-chhattisgarh

Collecting Spilled grains.

As opposed to all this, instead of helping such poor people, #modi and his gorement have chosen to write off Wilful Defaulter’s loans, to the tune of 68, 607 Crores (roughly 883 x 1,32,788 = 11,52,71,804 Dollars).

And then I read in Wiangga’s post:

The Jakarta Post reported on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, that more farmers from villages help cities ensure food supply during the pandemic. The farmer association in Kulon Progo sent pickup trucks full of vegetables and rice to Yogjakarta to help the poor and those who had lost their income during the pandemic.’

Why didn’t Indian Farmers do that?

Bec too many of them are Busy Committing Suicide.

All hail to chief #modi, and his able assistant, #amitshaw.

Learning, at the age of 72; Edited.

[ NOTE: This is a PS, correcting my former word ‘Immigrant’ to Migrant, please. ]

Hello, my Dear Friends,

Had been concentrating on Facebook and Twitter, as they take lesser time to write.

Feel inspired to start working on my good old Blog again.

About this ‘learning…’

Had been showing what I found wrong, and had thought that people would simply and automatically understand that Doing the Opposite was the Solution.

But Bill Gates, one of whose posts I was reading of late, suggests that we, (in my case particularly ‘I’), say it out, in black and white as it were, what could be the solutions.

With India’s Corona lock down, it has meant that thousands of Immigrant Migrant workers want to return home, deciding to Walk(!), Hundreds of kilometres, as Trains are cancelled; – along with small children.

Youth and others are being harassed by the police, when these are trying to return.

And this is what I wrote to the Indian Prime Minister’s Office:

@PMOIndia

1. Pl arrange for FOOD along the way, for those trying to return home.

2. Army trucks could help them for at least for part of journey.

3. Army shd be under STRICT instructions not to Molest, particularly the women and girls.

[ Army men have been known to use ‘Rape’ as a tool, for what they would say bringing out the truth, as well as… ]

Response of Women of the North East of India, for Younger women being raped:

Do You think I am improving? 🙂

Love and Regards, and Stay Safe.
