It is official now. India is facing second wave of infections. Riding on the ‘Marriage Season” and gross violation of all protocols, the Corona Virus has hit India again. With 53,476 new cases and 251 deaths, the total infections rose to 11,787,534 cases which include 395,192 active cases and 160,692 fatalities, it is apparent. The number of daily infections has risen five times in less than a month.
The vaccination program of India and the world shows the total number of vaccinations so far:
National Investigating Agency has arrested Sachin Hindurao Vaze who is a police officer of the Maharashtra Police Force of India. Vaze is known as an “encounter specialist” with the Mumbai Encounter Squad and was involved with the deaths of as many as 63 alleged criminals. Vaze joined Maharashtra Police Force in 1990.
Vaze was arrested at 11.50 pm on Saturday, after being questioned for 12 hours by the NIA on the ground of placing explosive at the house of businessmen Mukesh Ambani on 25th February 2021. Imagine an on duty Police Officer working as a terrorist? The court has granted custody of Vaze till 25th March 2021. He is likely to be subjected to Narco Test, which is an euphemism for truth serum interrogation.
Let’s connect the dots. Ambani is publicly harassed, by one national political party repeatedly as beneficiary of the Govt policies without any details what so ever. Mobile towers of his company are vandalised in Punjab. Subscriber base of Jio falls to lowest in Punjab.
Anurag Kashyap is a mediocre movie director whose last and only successful movie is remembered for the choicest expletives he inserted in it. The actress Tapsee Pannu is no different. She is relatively new comer and not a blockbuster by any standards. Yet both have their networth multiplied exponentially. For past three days incometax department is questioning them for sources of their income.
The Midas Touch of Wealth without SUCCESS.
The Income Tax Department had been monitoring these two for a long time. Their ever rising wealth has become a reason for raids especially the fact that it happened while their movies were constantly flopping. Two producers Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena have also similar track record. The IT department is searching the magical wand by which these people generate wealth.
Anurag Kashyap has been working in the film industry for almost 23 years. In the year 1998, he started his career as a story writer with the film ‘Satya’. After this, he became a director from the 1999 film ‘Last Train to Mahakali’ and a producer from the 2010 film Udaan.
In just 23 years, Kashyap has acquired assets worth about 806 crores. His films continued to flop, but the property has been growing faster rate at which his movies flopped.
#MeToo campaign had started in India a few years ago, after similar incidents were reported in Hollywood about Harvey Weinstein. Then Minister MJ Akbar was accused of sexual harassment by a journalist. Minister sued the journalist for criminal defamation and after trial lost.
The criminal complaint was doomed from the beginning. There are two reasons and both are legal reasons. First is the nature of proof. To prove a criminal complaint the evidence must be of such quality so as to prove beyond reasonable doubt that accused is guilty.
Second is that the an accused has a very light burden to prove. As following extract will explain, the accused can deny the allegation on oath and unless her ‘truthful character’ is impeached this evidence is enough to disprove.
It was a case of one testimony against another duly corroborated by the presence of Akbar at the place and time. Unless the complainant could deny the place and his presence at the given time, this complaint was non-starter.
SARS-CoV-2 was first reported from China. Within three months, it evolved to 10 additional subtypes. Two evolved subtypes (A2 and A2a) carry a non-synonymous Spike protein mutation (D614G).
A new study:
A phylodynamic analysis of over 70,000 SARS-CoV-2 coronaviruses worldwide, sequenced until July2020, and found that the mutant sub-type (614G) out competed the pre-existing type (614D), significantly faster in Europe and North-America than in East Asia. A study has concluded that:
