Fareed is a knowledgeable guy and likeable. However, it is annoying that he is allowed to shamelessly advertise his book for free. He put it right behind him on camera and it's the only book of all of them that clearly shows the front cover. How many millions will he get from this and all for free? All the CNN people like Don Lemon advertise their books for free if they have one. In Lemon's case he had every person who he works with mention how good his book is "without asking" making him more millions.

Modi is making this government seem less democratic as he is more interested in boosting his ego than actually helping us out. For example: we really do not need a new government building. That 13000 crores can be diverted towards Covid relief.

Rhetoric overtakes facts in some part of Zakaria talk. It is true there was a major issue with migrant workers, probably not anticipated, but did get addressed later, but then that is not sensational enough to report for CNN. It is not true pharmacy and groceries were closed. Far from it, essentials were available all through lockdown; yes the choice was a little curtailed in the initial weeks bcos mfg units rationalised production and distribution. The Indian industry and civil society rise in a big way to mitigate hardships. Community kitchens and food parcels were common sight to complement govt schemes. It certainly protected India from first wave when India was not even ready with test kits, masks, PPE and health care infra . To dismiss the lockdown as too harsh and too early suits CNN narrative, bcos one would never know how much worse it would have been at that time even compared to now if the lockdown was not implemented. There is no denial that the wave 2 is bad and the country after its truly remarkable response to wave 1 could have handled it better.

No pharmacy shut down during lockdown. With all due respect this seems more of a propaganda. Yes Govt has fumbled a lot but you cannot blame the centre alone, the state govts have to take the blame as well. He is lying about many things.

No one is showing china is real face of corona virus. Why some foreign media showing 5-6 year old cow festival video & link with corona they are not interested in dog festival of china. Below list of Fake biased china & Green Jihadi psycho community sponsored media.

The experience of China, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and, even India's first lockdown, has demonstrated that lockdown is the only effective way to stop Covid-19 transmissions. Just 2 weeks to isolate the infected parties and another few weeks for them to be treated or pass away and then, the pandemic will nearly be over. After that, it becomes an easier matter of containment. No huge need for masks and vaccines, if there is no virus. Why isn't every country practicing that? Instead, most countries are pussyfooting around the issue, leaving gaps for the virus to survive, mutate and spread. I wish people who have a voice that can reach the government and the masses help take this message to more ears. Oh, one more point; I agree with Fareed that before lockdown, there should be early warning and time given for people to stock up and attend to urgent matters.

Too many people in India have to choose between feeding their children and leave their houses to make money or stay in their houses and be safe from the covid-19 virus. Treat countries like India as a country with extreme food shortage and feed the poor so they might obey a lock down. The UN should take the initiative by sending food and make sure that the people who need it, actually get it

the lockdown spreads things out. the first lockdowns were sold to the population “because the hc systems couldnt cope” this although “triage” is a basic tenet in medicine..make do with what you have. ofcourse society will assist as best as they can, but hc can ALWAYS cope. lives are saved with lockdowns is the messages. that is true shortterm. whether that is true longterm remains to be seen. the idea is that vaccins will fix it, its like the cavalry, the magic bullet. whether that is the case remains to be seen as well. the 1918 flu was probably similar to covid. it had 5%+ victims, covid only 0.3%, but 95% of these 1918 victims died from bacterial infections when weakened. we have now antibiotics. but the interesting thing on 1918 was that there were 3 peaks in the span of a year and the whole world was rid of it for 30y (later came h1n3 etc) we are now 15months further and have india in full blown epidemy..that is because of lockdowns..instead of a fire that burns and then extinguishes, we have thanks to lockdowns , smouldering fire everywhere, and then suddenly here and there new flares..do lockdowns save lives? it remains to be seen. it could also be that they prolong the time the virus has to mutate around.

Till around January 2021, Indian people were very careful. You couldn't find anyone on the streets without a mask. But since then, people gave up on masks. In 2020, all small merchants had to close down businesses for months and took on the biggest losses. Then surprisingly the virus didn't have much impact in India. When it was perceived that Indians are immune to the virus, people completely ignored the government's recommendations on masks and social distancing. Since January 2021, all safe practices are put aside. And hence the surge in numbers.

In states run by Christian and Muslim chief ministers, there is so much corruption and extortion of money from poor patients. Mr. Modi has commitment and love for the country. The Christian and Muslim chief ministers don't have any love for the country.

New, streamlined nations e.g. Punjab, Tamil Nadu or Kashmir going independent would do much better being unified along shared causes, faiths or ethnicities. People then will work genuinely towards the betterment of the societies they truly belong in. India is now like a pot with which 20 different chefs try to cook a shared dinner for all. They are each to contribute something nutritious but when no one is looking they each throw in a little rock into the pot instead. In the end, instead of a pot of wholesome stew, everyone gets a bowl of soup boiled with stones!

If British India was never a democracy, would this artificial union of disparate ethnic and cultural peoples suddenly have become democratic in true form and spirit? Democracy is just a cunning concept and false front on which tyranny, bigotry and political hypocrisy thrive while keeping the Indian masses perpetually suppressed and impoverished.
Jeremy Pink
Jeremy Pink 7 dögum síðan
The pandemic has made it clear that India cannot exist as a nation because the federal government cannot help the country at all. Different parts of this artificial nation would do better if they declare independence. Gee, there was never a country called India until the British came in to put together diverse kingdoms into a colony for their exploitation. Present India is never a spontaneous evolution of a sovereign country. It was a creation of the British colonial master. People who accept the integrity of this India are, in effect, acknowledging England as their own rapist father, an England that had long absconded with the riches of the Indian subcontinent. Therefore, to regain their pride and dignity, the proud peoples and cultures of the Indian subcontinent must rise to forge their own truly independent nations and discard the unspeakable shame of the past. To accept the status quo of India as a whole country is to still suffer under the yoke of a British ghost.
