    Lockdown 4.0 in Bangalore and Karnataka: What is allowed and what is not!

    Lockdown 4.0 starts from today, and this is the 4th edition of lockdown, at least from the “edition” perspective. Though on ground, Corona virus is still rampant across the country and in almost all 200 countries globally. What I can see is, relaxing the lockdown is more of relaxation for your body and mind, than the actual virus itself. Having said that, it’s important to understand that lockdown relaxation is essential. In Karnataka, lockdown 4.0 makes way for several new things that were not available before. Let us quickly take a look at them below. Do note that all of these are applicable from May 19, 2020 and is only…

    21 things to do for 21 days: Corona virus lockdown

    Last evening, Mr. Narendra Modi has informed the nation that there would be 21 days of lockdown across India. This means, for the next 21 days, you cannot go out of the house without a specific reason; and that specific reason, must convince the police. Else, you might get yourself in trouble. While I was terrified looking hearing the news about the 21-day lockdown, there’s very little I could do about it. It’s an order imposed by the Prime Minister of a country, and you need to respect it. Considering the fact that the lockdown has been imposed for the nation’s welfare, it makes more sense to honestly follow it.…

    India lockdown: Where are we heading to?

    As I write this email, I get scared of the future. Last evening, almost all states were ordered to shut down. Rather, a lockdown of the states. This simply means, there are a hell lot of restrictions imposed on the people and their movement, restrictions on business centres, hotels and almost every other commercial place. While some of the daily essentials will be made available, most of the them won’t be. If you turn on any random news channel, you’ll probably go mad looking at the amount of news and information being thrown at you. Agree, this is the time the news channels have to make maximum money and increase…

    How to stop the Corona virus spread?

    Since the last month or so, the spread of Corona virus has been rampant. While several countries have imposed lock down and taken stringent measures, there has been little to no success in eradicating it. Why? Because, a lot of it is dependent on each of us. Yes, for the spread of Corona virus to subside, it’s very important that we all follow certain protocols and be truly honest about it. Google shows you the way If you open Google’s homepage today, you’ll find a link below their search engine that says “Stay home this Sunday and DO THE FIVE”. If you click on it, you get to see the…

    Janata Curfew in India: Are you ready?

    I am not sure if you’ll believe me but I had guessed ‘Janata Curfew’ even before our Honorable Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, addressed the nation. Of course, the word ‘Janata Curfew’ wasn’t on my mind but I had guessed something like this considering the fact that we need to do something about social distancing on a bigger level. After the Prime Minister’s talk, I was glad to know I had guessed it right. A lot of people have been asking me, especially my friends, on how can we manage a day without stepping out of the house. In fact, my friends are already cribbing and whining, as they have…

    Corona virus in Bengaluru: Top 3 tips to stay healthy

    It’s been close to 3 weeks now since I first heard about Corona virus, and the way it created an impact in China. Since then, I have been seeing it spread across different countries and there’s no stopping to it. As I write this email, there are about 170 cases reported across India, and about 17 cases reported from Karnataka, and about half of those reported from Bengaluru. While the numbers are way lesser when compared to the population of our country, it’s still a matter of worry as Corona virus can spread from one person to another at a rapid pace. So, what can we do about it? While…
