Karnataka: if you are in quarantine, don’t move your mobile phone

Firstly, let me express deep sense of appreciation to officials of Karnataka Government for monitoring people in quarantine to ensure safety of community. They have a mechanism to reach out via an interactive automated voice call, they have a doctor call person and then an employee from BBMP (Bangalore Bruhat Maha Palika) or local panchayat. All of them are doing great job. However, technology given to them or mechanism given to them is inappropriate. Since I have travelled to Hyderabad during last week of June, we are marked to be in home quarantine till 10th July, 2020. A couple of…

Recent travel experience

To help my mother-in-law, I have recently travelled to Hyderabad from Bangalore. This is my first travel during this COVID 19 situation. Good news due to COVID 19 measures is that we no longer have to print boarding pass. Travellers can do a web check-in and carry electronic boarding pass on their mobile device. Not so good news is that while web check-in is mandatory, airlenes keep a price tag for many seats ranging from INR 400 to INR 1000. It’s a bit painful because already air fares are hiked than usual. However, one can choose to have seat auto-assigned.…

Tips for effective sleep

It’s essential that we sleep at least for 7 hours a night and an hour during day. A lot of people complaint that they they do not get sleep. Here are some tips that I have learnt from various spiritual speeches. Leave gadgets includeing mobile phone 30 minutes before going to bed.

#TTDProperty – no bloody fellow has right to sell!

I never prefer to use abusive words but incidents that are taking place in Andhra Pradesh. There is news about sale of TTD Property to raise money. These properties are not allotted by any government but have donated by devotees to expand better facilities so that more devotees could visit Tirumala. Hence no government or anyone has any bloody right to sell them. Those thought of selling have to consider selling their own properties and donate to TTD if they really concerned about financial situation. Government of Andhra Pradesh needs to understand that they should not test patience of people.…

Does god exist? – a practical answer by a Hindu Priest

This is a short messaging extracted from speech of Dr. Shri. Garikipati Narasimha Rao. Once upon a time, a Hindu Pundit goes for a haircut. While working, the barber has asked “Sir, does the God exist?” The Pundit responds “Why not? by the way, I’m a brahmin pundit and spend a lot of time serving the God; why are you asking me such a question?”. The barber says “No sir, if God exist, he should be taking care of all of us and solve our problems; since that is not happening, I don’t think God exist”. The Pundit did not…

China, you don’t deserve to sell us your products

Read news about China’s claim about quality of their Rapid Testing Kits for COVID-19 which was rejected by our Government. India has made a wise decision of advising not to use Rapid Testing Kits made in China. China can’t even produce quality toys for children and why should we trust that China can produce quality products for health care? If China really have any humanaterion ethics, it could have controlled Carona virus itself by taking necessary measures and advise its citizens to stop eating animals. who knows what all have eaten by the team worked on to prepare Rapid Testing…

Not happy in your current job; should you move on?

Today, we often observe that people switch jobs for almost no reason; one of the most common reason is that the other company is offering some extra money. People especially youth of today should know that they should not switch jobs for pity reasons; there must be a strong reason for switching job. If you are switching job for a pay hike, please be informed that you get even better hike when you are loyal to your employer and show productivity; it may take a while but your effort and honesty will not go waste. There is no guarantee that…

Train cancelled… but you don’t have to rush for cancellation

India since lockdown has been extended, Indian Railways have suspended all trains till 3rd May, 2020. Indian Railways have sent messages to passengers stating e-tickets will be cancelled automatically and full refund gets credited to payment method used while booking. There is no need for users to take any action. For passengers those booked tickets through counters can submit tickets for vull refund till 20th June, 2020; so there is no need to rush to railway counters immediately. In the interest of Passenger safety, once trains are resumed, (hopefully for a few months or so), no blankets will be provided…

Lockdown in India continues to fight against COVID-19

Addressing the nation, the Prime Minister, Shri. Narendra has appreciated all citizens for following lockdown to fight against Corna virus (COVID19). He recalled that when there were no single case of Carona Virus, India has decided to screen every traveller, when there were just 550 COVID19 cases, India has decided to mandate 14 day quarantine for those who returned from different countries. When deaths due to COVID 19 are not even 100, India has taken step to lockdown completely for 21 days. Although, it has caused difficulties to citizens, it has certainly shown great results.
