  1. The spike was more due to the religious meet in Delhi and the participants then going back to four corners of the country. More stupidity is that they aren't co-operating with the authorities. They have became the new hotspot cluster.
  2. We crossed 1600 yesterday with highest jump of cases yesterday. I was starting to believe we were controlling the spread as the rate of new cases per day was slowing down. With the govt not wishing to extend the lockdown period, the window to contain the virus spread gets shorter. Economic realities will compel to end the lockdown
  3. That lathi (bamboo stick) beating is just normal and some people need a stick to understand. Just an article how online buying of groceries and other essential items is playing out https://yourstory.com/2020/03/coronavirus-bigbasket-grofers-ninjacart-groceries-demand-rise-ecommerce?utm_pageloadtype=scroll
  4. We do have online delivery of essential items in Bangalore, India but its delayed. We had ordered on Sunday but its scheduled to arrive on Wednesday. Normally lead time of online delivery of groceries in Tier I cities is not more than a day
  5. There are still some stupid people https://www.indiatoday.in/movies/bollywood/story/baby-doll-singer-kanika-kapoor-tests-coronavirus-positive-she-hid-travel-history-threw-party-at-5-star-1657811-2020-03-20
  6. Even if the numbers are under-reported its still quite low given the population size and urban population density. Here, the pandemic is still at an early stage and we intend to keep the curve flat. Its not feasible to test everyone so only those who arrived from abroad or show symptoms are tested. We are trying to beat the pandemic by lockdown and most institutions like schools, colleges, banks and offices are closed. Our PM requested everyone to follow a virtual curfew on Sunday. The roads of Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India and has the worst traffic in the world, has sparse traffic nowadays and its surreal to see so few cars on the road
  7. I too agree on the overall number but still would nitpick on few numbers. For example, do you really think we can qualify a team in Women's Archery. I really don't trust Deepika Kumari and co. Also we will qualify 4 golfers. 7 players in Badminton is a long shot now unless the qualifying period is extended which it should as many events in April is suspended. Biggest regret so far definitely is Table Tennis team qualification, hope we clinch it in 2024. Can you elaborate who do you see qualifying in Taekwondo and Canoeing in 2024
  8. I would propose a multi-sport of sports which are indigenous and popular to a country or region and have potential to have mass popularity like Kabaddi from Indian subcontinent, Australian rules football, hurling, sepaktakraw etc. Since most of them are team sports, the quotas can be handed as follows - four best teams and one each from Asia/Oceania, Africa, Europe and Americas; so each sport shall feature 8 NOCs. NOCs may not be ranked by medal tally but by cumulative points earned in sport. The points earned shall be earned by combination of final standing and a weightage factor decided by whether the sport is indigenous in that region. For example, in hurling Ireland shall have a lower weightage factor then, lets say Kenya. Probable List of sports American football Basque pelota Hurling Kabaddi Sepaktakraw Wushu Sambo Netball Lawn bowls Australian rules football
  9. Manish Kaushik qualifies for Olympics, giving Harry Garside a bloody eye
  10. Hope we qualify more than in 2012 when 7 men and Mary Kom had qualified
  11. Olympic channel isn't working in my device at all
  12. Ashish Kumar progresses to Quarterfinals of Middleweight category, one win away from qualification. 5 wins out of 5 bouts for Indian boxers so far
