    Per today's Deccan Herald, a village fair was conducted in Abnali village on April 5th/6th; all who participated (144) have been tested positive! How come the fair was allowed to be conducted in the first place? Now just imagine what kumbh Mela & election rallies crowd will spread the infection??

    Normal seasonal flu viruses also called as corona viruses. That's why some people take yearly flu shots by the fear and hype created by Big Pharma for business. So these current and future corona viruses if classified as Covid 21, 22, 23, it is not surprising also If all of these viruses this high sensitive RTPCR tests detect has Covid 19!!! It is not surprising. These communists chinese, globalists elites, Big Pharma and their controlled media making use of this Wuhan leakage or deliberate spread also through chemtrails in the west in some places in the name of reducing global warming or other reasons to depopulate and control the world to bring their new world order. That's why better to avoid testing if one has little cold, one likely to test positive. But Sooner or later, world, already almost controlled by Globalists billionaires and communists, if RTPCR tests /Vaccines become mandatory, (Book Revelation Ch 13:16 -18) and must for travel or to buy and sell, it is not surprising. Worst part is that these high tech vaccines what damage do to the human immune system, God only knows. These vaccines already no effect at all on mutants as cases are increasing. if they come up with one or more or yearly booster shorts it is not surprising but how many survive with this artificial immunity and bad side effects of these and in overcoming future viruses, it is the question? Seems Lucrative business for Global elites (vaccines, technology, online business) and Big pharma but common people and smaller and third world countries are in big nightmare. Seems war is going on between Good versus evil. Only prayers can help that's why communists have always targeted or closing of religious places so no prayers take place and that they can go on their killing spree. One should not deter by this but double the prayers as we know doctors finally say we have done our best, now, it is in God's hand. So better to pray more to safely sail through this storm.

    ELECTIONS are over CURFEW back!!.. ofcourse CORONA wud'nt affect election rallies/roadshows of feku or taklu. BJP has ruined india beyond recognition. one by one nations are issuing travel BANs to india. feku for years didnt built single hospital but had money for monuments/stadiums/temples, he shamelessly squandered peoples money on these. INDIA now importing drugs/oxygen from even countries like bangla !! being net exporter to begging for lifesaving drugs thats FEKU/BJPs great acheivement.

    Praveen, we booked the hall of St.Joseph, Vikhroli, Mumbai. The condition was, if we cancel, the booking, the booking amount would not be refunded. However, if they get a customer or if we bring a customer after cancellation, they are refunding whole amount. The rules in different halls may differ. Another thing, if you are Catholic and want the marriage in marriage registrar's office, please do not consummate the marriage till you have a marriage in Catholic church.

    It's too late in the day to impose such nonsensical restrictions as the big damage has already been done! The situation will explode as the lacs of Kumbh Mela & election rally returnees come back to their respective homes; get ready for the worst; all thanks to the administration! Coupled with this virus, many more businesses will close down & lacs of poor people will become papers! This is just my personal opinion only.

    Curfew nor lockdown has to be imposed in a strict manner. No point in giving relaxations for few essential services, where authority take advantage. Last lockdown you should have seen industrial areas near baikampady, Thanneerbhavi areas,construction works were going in full swing. There was no one to bother them, Why such incidence should happen. Can't we wait for 2 weeks and bring down some cases, Govt should impose strict measures, it's only for 2 weeks. According to my views , Government should deposit Rs 10000/- in every ration card holders account, and give 2 days time to procure essential provisions for 2 weeks and impose strict rules that no one should step out of their residence. Only Hospital that too limited staff on alternative days should be given permission to work and only medical stores should be open. Other than this not even a single shop should be open. You follow this, I think we can bring down lots of new cases.

    If i was the prime minister, i would give everyone an ultimatum of ten days to reach wherever everyone wants to reach. Call in the army. Get them to mobilize all the resources to get people to their homes. Part of them covering every house distributing ration and urgent medicines. Build temporary army tent hospitals and arrange treatment and vaccination. I would make the army take over all the oxygen and vaccine production units. The army would make sure to knock on every house, checking on every single citizen. Have public address systems in place to create awareness. On the tenth day for a month enter lockdown. And the army will deal with voilators with a iron hand. This is the only way to get rid of this virus. But alas I am not the prime minister.

    Satish, The top 10% of the Indian population holds 77% of the total national wealth. 73% of the wealth generated in 2017 went to the richest 1%, while 67 million Indians who comprise the poorest half of the population saw only a 1% increase in their wealth. We stand at #102 out of 117 in global hunger index!!

    It is an humble request to stop interstate/interdistrict travel of people. People are coming down to their hometown i.e to mangalore for various functions especially from Maharashtra, Kerala ,bangalore and various other places. It would be better if the govt stop all this. This way number of cases will be reduced.

    Once again the virus has become more intelligent like in last year, now it will roam the streets in weekends, will be a devotee to attend religious places & will get free pass on nights to morning like Vikramadhithya Bethala. It shows the govt has no vision or lack scientific evidence based decision making capacity. End RTPCR Pandemic by stopping that test which has clearly stated in its manual- "For Experimental Use Only, Not to Test for Covid"

    No point in doing these things. Cases will go up like crazy and there's no point in doing a lockdown after that. When a boat starts leaking,you abondon the mission,search for land,repair the boat and set out again in water after a few days of rest when the boat is good enough. Sailing with a boat filled with so many holes wile drown you in a place where there's not even a chance of swimming back to safety later on.
