Farmers Protest to Public Protests


It has been been more than 22 days, Indian Public along with farmers are protesting at all the borders of national capital New Delhi. Prior to this farmers have already been protesting in the states of Punjab, Haryana, parts of Uttar Pradesh from last 3 months against new farms bill 2020 introduced by Modi government during Covid lockdown.
Farmers are saying
1. Industrial houses – Adani & Ambani are backed by Modi government.
2. That’s the reason they had the knowledge of the details of the farm bills that it will legitimize Hoarding & from 2017 they are working and now they have already setup gigantic storage facilities in Haryana even before introductions of farm bills in 2020.
3. This bill do not guarantee the Minimum Selling Price #MSP of produce and farmers are asked directly to negotiate with corporates. Farmers says after gigantic hoarding at normal prices this corporates will not only BUY CHEAP by bargain with farmers much below MSP but will also SELL DEAR to the end consumers.
4. In the event of any disputes farmers will be at the mercy of SDM Senior District Megistrate, because as per farmers bill farmers cannot go to courts in disputes. Farmers are of impression when courts today are showing favouritism to government & corporates, which SDM position can give justice to poor farmers?
5. Why government has drafted this anti – farmers bill without consulting farmers (a main stakeholders in bill), opposition political parties, Joint Parliamentary committee (as bills has to be discussed in joint committee consisting of members of parliament of different political parties representing public).
6. Why this bill was in emergency passed by VOICE VOTES when due to Covid MPs from many other political parties were not present in the House ? What was the emergency??
7. How Central government can frame farms bill when it comes under jurisdiction of States?


Hence at the beginning farmers were protesting to guarantee MSP, to bring Courts in the event of disputes but as Central government stood hard & even used police force on peaceful protests, now farmers are demanding scrapping entire farmers bill.

Though after use of force by Modi government & after Global agitation in support of farmers, Modi government showed interest to support MSP & bring Courts jurisdiction but in vain because till date government have not drafted this assurance in the farms bills.
Therefore farmers are of stand that Modi government is not interested legally to draft the bills which it has assured in its interest letters hence its high time to rollback this Anti Farmers Bill.

Presently this matter have entered the Supreme Court of India & here its going to be discussed by the collective team of Jurists & senior politicos, Social Thinkers,, team is yet to be made.

But most sad part of this protests & chilly winters- have witnessed deaths of 22 lives till date.

We can say Governments are framed for the welfare of people but its dark side of governments when even life of people do not matter to this power hungry machines working 360* to benefit corporates.

Conclusion : We think Modi government won’t scrap farm bill 2020, nor it will be in a position to enforce it as best of the lawyers jurists are standing to debate in support of farmers in Supreme Court as well local, national, global voices are supporting public & farmers to scrap farm bill. Henceforth it will go in a deep fridge as of now in near future and may be Modi & team will use it to get votes by legalizing it as per farmers demand in 2024.
It’s been our notice from 2014 till date of this Modi government, it has crumbled the 11% Indian GDP Growth rate to 2%, now Negative thanks to Covid outcome.
Nationalistic idea of this government have also not won rationally as Indian neighbours China, Pakistan & non speakers as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh are also showing thumbs down.
Banks, NBFCs, big corporates are going bankruptcy. Communal violence rising, trade & commerce shattered, though Kashmir made Union Territory but it is of no benefit in reviving national growth and terrorist activities have not fallen. Demonetization have not yield any repercussions on black money and corruption. GST Goods & Services Tax have adversely affected Small & Medium Enterprises. Highest numbers of financial frauds witnessed affecting billions of dollar loss to India fraudsters yet to be brought to justice nor it seems to be happening. The only music of crazy Nationalism, Hinduism is chanting by so called BJP IT Cell & mind washing general public having nationalistic ideas but not understanding deep dark politics which is only benefitting only 2 or few dear corporates. Hope public to come out of this hangover and see the real accident already happened after 2014.
May be slowly but 1 by 1 people who are directly affected are getting out of this hangover, better late than never.

Coronavirus Global Impact

New daily cases of corona virus show that lock downs and physical distancing do work, though it takes time. They work by reducing the pool of potential people that the virus can infect, which slows the spread and allows authorities a chance to contact-trace and quarantine those that have been infected or that have been in contact with people infected. It is a mammoth task and economically destructive.

The US was slow to implement lockdowns and they’re still not universal across the country. The chart below shows the rolling seven day average of new daily cases for selected countries. A rolling average is used because the data is noisy and the average helps to smooth out anomalies. Previous epicentres in Italy and Spain are trending lower. The UK (including Prime Minister, Boris Johnson) continues an upward trend, though at a slower rate.

The US is, very clearly, still escalating rapidly though the rate of growth is slowing, however this may be more a function of the number of tests being carried out.

The latest on the outbreak
As of April 7, 2020, there were over 1.3 million confirmed cases of Covid-19 around the world and over 76,000 fatalities. The US, with over 370,000 cases, is grappling with a severe outbreak. New York state has over 130,000 cases and is facing shortages of critical medical supplies and equipment. In Western Europe, Italy and Spain have a combined total of over 270,000 cases. The death rate in the European Union is almost four times the rate in the US.

Half the world’s population, about four billion people, is currently subject to some form of mandated social distancing. Most Western European countries have implemented various types of national lockdowns. State and local governments in the US have issued strict shelter-in-place or stay-at-home orders requiring nonessential business to close and residents to avoid leaving their homes unless necessary. While a number of countries have announced extensions of social-distancing measures, several European governments—Italy, Denmark and Norway—are preparing to ease restrictions as infection and fatality curves have flattened in recent days.

The sizeable economic effects of the pandemic are becoming apparent. Data from China indicates the virus resulted in a 20% GDP decline in the first two months of 2020; other countries forced to implement aggressive social distancing will likely experience similar effects. In the US, over 10 million American workers filed for unemployment in the last two weeks of March. Economists estimate the country’s unemployment rate is currently at 10% and could rise to 15% later this year.

The global economy now faces two threats. If governments around the world fail to slow the virus’s progression or if they relax social-distancing measures too aggressively, the human toll and economic effects will be significant. Furthermore, the pandemic is jeopardizing the stability of the financial system.

The Federal Reserve and European Central Bank have launched an unprecedented effort to prevent a liquidity crisis that could jeopardize the entire global financial system, but fiscal stimulus measures are almost certainly needed to stabilize the macroeconomy. Legislators across the developed world have promised to deliver economic relief, and many have already done so. France and Germany have both announced large stimulus packages, but long-standing tensions within the eurozone are hampering regional relief efforts. In the US, President Donald Trump signed a $2 trillion stimulus bill on March 27, although the rollout of the legislation has been rocky.

Looking ahead
The Situational Threat Report (SITREP) Index is likely to increase further as aggressive social-distancing measures are implemented and extended in more countries. New research indicates these measures may be required for much longer than many are expecting, and the economic and financial damage from maintaining these disruptions will grow geometrically over time. The duration of these disruptions will be an important determinant of the pandemic’s ultimate economic effects. Considerable uncertainty remains, however, about the duration of these measures, which is why we are not yet raising the index to level 7 on a scale of 10. We still anticipate raising the index to level 7 by early April if the situation continues on its current trajectory.

Since we first published the index in February, observable patterns have helped resolve some unknowns, but significant uncertainty still surrounds other critical determinants of the virus’s ultimate effects. We originally constructed the index to encompass the broadest possible range of potential developments across three dimensions: the epidemiological progression of the virus, governments’ policy responses to the pandemic, and the epidemic’s macroeconomic impact. We believe that our original range (from 0 to 10) still encompasses the full range of possible outcomes.

Encouragingly, developments along all three dimensions have reduced the likelihood we will ever reach the uppermost range of outcomes. That said, we remain cautious about ruling out more extreme possibilities in a situation as multifaceted and fluid as the global Covid-19 pandemic.

In light of our evolving understanding of the contours of the pandemic, we are making minor clarifying adjustments to the descriptions of the index’s upper levels (7 through 10). These adjustments have not changed the meaning of those levels, nor do they imply a change to the relationship between the index level and recommended business response.

We believe these changes enhance readability and transparency about how we are calibrating judgments on the current global situation surrounding the pandemic. Specifically, the language now focuses more on the macroeconomic impacts, although these effects are intertwined with both government policies and the epidemiological situation.

To provide additional context, we also offer the following commentary about the two sets of ranges in the upper part of the index:

Levels 7 and 8 imply that enough macroeconomic damage has occurred or is likely to occur to transform a one-time shock into a more severe, broad-based, multiquarter recession comparable to other severe recessions since World War II. In particular, if solvency-risk concerns spread beyond the initial set of frontline industries most directly impacted by social distancing, the resulting economic contractions are likely to be more severe and long-lasting.

Levels 9 and 10 imply that macroeconomic conditions are adverse enough to produce business failures far beyond the scope of typical contractions, unless governments implement adequate backstops. For example, if governments mandate extremely strict social distancing for over a year, many normal market activities would likely be severely impaired.

We continue to maintain the index at Level 6 at this time. Barring unexpected developments, we will consider raising the index to Level 7 in early April, but offer no prejudgments about the likelihood of an increase at that time. We are closely monitoring several factors that will affect the pandemic’s course: the progress of disease-mitigation efforts in places like Italy and Washington state, which provide useful information about how much distancing is required to achieve stabilization; fiscal and monetary policy initiatives to address the macroeconomic damage resulting from the pandemic; and emerging treatment protocols, which could change the epidemiological facts of the virus.

Ban Wet-Markets of China India SE-Asia before it becomes too late…

Nagaland in India, street traders not only‘risking human health by slaughtering goats, lambs and chickens in squalid conditions’but also killing Dogs for meat which is illegal,anti-Animal Rights. Indian govt. & Nagaland State govt. till date not banned this illegal activity when coronavirus pandemic is creating turmoil for human existance globally.

China again opened up its wet markets. Global govts. seems much busy in fighting covid and not raising proper voice to ban this chinese wet markets. Until & unless the origin cause of the pandemic is not completly banned this viruses will come again and again in more stronger and may be human society may not fight viruses. Better now to stop wetmarkets & killing animals then it becomes too late for the human existance.

De-Centralize Global Manufacturing : Shifting from China to India

World has made China the global manufacturing hub. Most of the global corporations have their manufacturing units in China. In the past China attracted the global investments by showcasing their easy availability of the factors of production viz. land, labour,trade services. But today the real negative face of communist China has outgrown the positive sides it shown to the world. Its power centric idealogy not only overpowering the democratic setup of global society but also wants to create an envioronment of manufacturing monopoly and this is not good for the global future. India compared to China stands taller in democratic setup, easy availablity of land, labour, capital, trade services.

Though world may have not approached India in the past for manufacturing setup, but now its not only the necessecity but in actual terms India seems much better in not only manufacturing but also in presence of vast market that can service entire Asia and other continents with ease.The global open economic envioronment, enhanced trade services, developed IT infrastructure, quality and cheap labour etc, all goes in the plus positive points in favour of India.

#Covid-Lockdown- The mirror of global political corruption !

Thanks to Covid-Lockdown’ may seems inhuman word but when its acting as a mirror of global political corruption, then whats the harm in thanking. Total Human population globally is 7.8 Bn. but today a fact is realised that even 1% of the global population cant be supported by governmental medical facilities worldwide. This one percent may seems big number but when entire 100 percent number is 100 times bigger too and if governments governing this cent percent world population cant take care of just 1% then thre is a BIG BIG Q mark on their political management and its proved today in black and white either we accept it or not.This is the harsh reality which common people is facing with their life and deaths. When Corona Virus has no power to effect everyones life, it will not effect even 1% of the world population then why governments and politicians globally are jumping to lockdown? Answer is,they seems less interested in saving lives, if that would have been the case then atlest globally governments would have done some efferts in the past atleast would have built medical infrastructure that can support 1% of the people.

PPE shortages are forcing some doctors to use raincoats and motorbike helmets

Actually by lockdown the present pity state of medical infra wont be challanged and thus they would be able to wrap their faults/corruption which they have done till today. The big wars, nukes,hi-life enjoyed by politicians are way more costly then building a bare medical support for the common men, which they neglected. Today all reality is infront of you- hide it or live with it- but thats the harsh reality. Yes one more thing medical facility may seems a big word, forget it, this global politicians / governments are unable to provide with PPE Personal Protective Equipments to doctors and medical staff fighting Covid for the world. Dont feel shame make this governments and politicians feel shame.
