India Needs You. Let's come together in support

    The condition in the hospitals of India, especially in the capital New Delhi is gut wrenching.

    I've never seen humanity at its lowest, I guess the last few days made me appreciate life even more.

    Medical system in India was always fragmented, but people living here are so used to marinating in mediocrity that it didn't bother anyone.

    I hear people telling me that medical system in India has collapsed under the weight of this pandemic, the truth is that it was always broken and on life support, the pandemic simply exposed it's rotten core.

    No amount of donations or wishful thinking can fix it, unless they decide that corruption should be dealt with full severity of the law or atleast kept away from the pillars of a society such as healthcare system and infrastructure.

    Greed- in its ugliest avatar was visible everywhere, from bootleggers selling oxygen cylinders and life saving drugs like Remdesivir at otherworldly prices in black markets to ambulance drivers charging close to 200$ for a four kilometre drive.

    Idiotic mobs thrashing doctors and healthcare workers, when the real people who should be thrashed are safely tucked away in their palaces surrounded by security guards.

    Massive rallies and festivals being promoted by politicians who don't have to worry about the plight of the common man.

    The rich/celebrities have flown away to safer destinations or secured themselves in bio-bubbles inside their mansions, while the poorest of poor are left to die in the streets like vermin.

    Donate all you want, it will never reach the needy, there are vultures sitting at every corner waiting to devour anything that crosses their path.

    I left a high paying job in Europe to help my country during the pandemic, but the more I saw, the more I realised that this was inevitable.

    Even back in February 2021, I was pleading my patients to wear masks, to maintain proper social distancing and not to be swayed by suger-coated lies spread by these cunning politicians.

    "But, xxxx politician says that we have defeated the pandemic."

    "There's no need for everyone to wear masks, I have been vaccinated, if you don't let me in, I will file a complaint against you with your superiors."

    "You doctors say these things to scare people, we know the truth"
    .

    I wish I were making up all this, but all this happened weeks before the second wave got worse.

    People were themselves begging for this catastrophe, even educated folks were indifferent to our pleas to not let the guard down.

    There were five official complaints against me in one month, simply for not entertaining Covidiots who couldn't care less about a potential second wave.

    I don't regret coming back here, I would do the same even if I'm given a 100 more chances, but in the end, it's futile.
    No civilization fuelled by greed, incompetence and stupidity can withstand a major watershed moment in history.

    Those who should lead the nation are being silenced by those who cling on to power like leeches.
    These ruling incompetent baboons should be locked up in the deepest depths of a mental asylum.

    Going by the recent trends, this will be deleted soon.

    We should all donate, anything is better than nothing. It's true that considering India's scale anything looks like a drop in a ocean.
    As for corruption, it's more or less the same everywhere. It only comes to notice when something this big (pandemic) happens.
