During discussion on TV Channels on three different occasions from the start of Covid-19 case in Telangana state.
China: The virus spread to Wuhan City only and reported around 3000 deaths and later the deaths are few. China did not caution the world on the pros and cons to contain it. People started giving false theories – virus from bats; a virus contacted lady visiting market, etc. Bats are not new to the world or to China. Also, they are located 300 km away from the town. Reports state that the scientists collected the virus from bats long back. In fact I mentioned in my first TV debate that the virus entered the atmosphere while doing research. Such things happened in the past in the case of some viruses. China denied and some Chinese researchers do agree on this. WHO is in support of China and with this US stopped funding to WHO/UN similar to climate change. Now, reports are clear on this based on the past research reports from Chinese virologists. The virus must have entered accidentally or purposely released? This virus was carried to Iran and then to Italy through road project [India reject to join this project, other-wise we would have been the first country outside Wuhan]. From there to all free countries that were access through Aeroplanes-Ships. Great Tragedy!!!
India: Indian politicians never cared to follow the precautionary principle but are looking at post-mortem, particularly on the impact of calamities such as cyclones, floods, pollution, etc. on agriculture or viruses like Covid-19. This will help waste public money and pocket it under the disguise.
For example: Timely action by central government should have contained or stopped the spread of Covid-19 in India and thus the national disaster in terms of economy and in terms of agriculture. Here the central government should have applied precautionary principle by not allowing thousands of people from India and abroad coming to attend Tablighi Jamaat meeting at Markaj Nizamuddin in Delhi when Delhi was facing riots on citizenship bill with some states passing resolutions against the bill – shaky ground of ruling party. Or at least the central government should have stopped the people in Markaj Nizamuddin leaving the building.
In the case of two Telugu states the virus entered & spread from those people who came from Markaj Nizamuddin. However, in both the counts central government failed the rule of precautionary principle and now trying post-mortem action. By that time the national economy was in scramble and farmers suffered severe blow in the timely completing harvest and unfortunately at this time untimely rains affected the harvest also. The ruling party might have gained politically but failed miserably in running the nation.
Here the basic problem was the past & present government’s policies of encouraging rural to urban migration to meet the real estate needs at the cost of agriculture in rural India faced severe return migration with Covid-19. The urban labour force created problems with migration back to their villages illegally. The virus spread in urban areas to some pockets where the infected people joined the locals. Thus it became a socio-religio problem or fantasy..
Some people are talking reduced pollution. They failed to understand the pollution in residential areas increasing with the burning of domestic waste, plant material, hut dwellers using wood for heating and cooking; odour from cocking of food in open. These created severe breathing problems to old and children. Nobody bothered on this vital issue. On one side officials-politicians talk of lock down but they themselves are violating – TV Channels telecast them but they try to blame certain political party only.

In every step where an attempt is made to unravel the conspirators behind the assassinations and killing, there is an attempt to subvert it and suppress it. By the way will CPI-ML and others tell how often have the Commission's unearthed the truth? Why is CPI-ML and other political parties interested in the lies or half truths which Commission's give birth to? Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose continues to be in news 60 years after his disputed death. A BBC poll named Netaji the third most popular leader in South Asia after Jinnah and Gandhi. Netaji is supposed to have died at the end of Second World War. Netaji went missing while waging war for India 's freedom and in heart of hearts all Indians wish to know what happened to him. Nehru did institute the Shah Nawaz Khan Committee in 1956 after the Indian newspapers broke the news (based on agancy reports) on August 25, 1945 that Netaji had died in a freak plane crash in Taipei (Taihoku) on August 18th, 1945 .

Statement to the Supreme Court and to the Public of India at large. We, the below named, practicing members of the bar in India, have noted with dismay, the judgment of the Supreme Court, in Mr. Prashant Bhushan's contempt case. An independent judiciary consisting of independent judges and lawyers, is the basis of the rule of law in a Constitutional democracy. Mutual respect and the absence of coercion, are the hallmarks of a harmonious relationship between the bar and bench. Any tilting of the balance, one way or the other, is deleterious both to the institution and the nation. An independent judiciary does not mean that judges are immune from scrutiny and comment. It is the duty of lawyers to freely bring any shortcomings to the notice of bar, bench and the public at large. While some of us may have divergent views on the advisability and content of Mr. Prashant Bhushan's two tweets, we are unanimously of the view that no contempt of court was intended or committed especially

By EILEEN SULLIVAN 03/22/12 09:36 PM ET WASHINGTON — The U.S. intelligence community will now be able to store information about Americans with no ties to terrorism for up to five years under new Obama administration guidelines. Until now, the National Counterterrorism Center had to immediately destroy information about Americans that was already stored in other government databases when there were no clear ties to terrorism. Giving the NCTC expanded record-retention authority had been called for by members of Congress who said the intelligence community did not connect strands of intelligence held by multiple agencies leading up to the failed bombing attempt on a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas 2009. "Following the failed terrorist attack in December 2009, representatives of the counterterrorism community concluded it is vital for NCTC to be provided with a variety of datasets from various agencies that contain terrorism information," Director of National Intelligenc
