As on 5th June 2021, 22.78 crore vaccinations completed against 2.87 crore infected.

As on 11th June 2021, 24 crore (240 Million) doses have been administered in our beloved nation so ar. This number is greater than the combined population of UK, France, Germany and Australia.

India, at the moment is vaccinating one Qatar or 35 lakh (3.5 Million) citizens daily, which ois equivalent to the population of Kuwait too.

Hopefully from June 2021 end, India will vaccinate one New Zealand per day.

One Israel per day by July 2021.

India already vaccinated one Canada in the 1st first half of May 2021.

In entire May 2021, India vaccinated one UK.

Hopefully in July 2021, India will vaccinate one US.

44 crore (440 Million) doses of Covishield and Covaxin ordered. This is equivalent to the total population of European Union (EU).

30 crore (300 Million) does ordered from Biological E, equivalent to the population of USA.

This is the degree of vaccination being undertaken in India.

Be a proud Indian.

Also don’t forget Indian vaccines are the cheapest in the world and it is one of the 5 countries in the world to have vaccine of it’s own. Had the present leadership not worked towards developing it’s own vaccine, India would have been blackmailed like Taiwan by China, the rogue nation which did not allow any vaccine manufacturer to supply the vaccine for the proud nation, until USA agreed to donate its surplus 7,50,000 vaccine jabs to the Taiwanese people. In solidarity with its neighbour Taiwan received 1.24 million doses of the AstraZeneca China virus vaccine from Japan on Friday, alleviating the country’s struggles to obtain inoculations as it faces its first severe domestic outbreak. Reports also emerge that Sinovax, the vaccine made in China is not proving to be effective and even after 2 doses, China Virus is returning back.

During his visit to the US last week, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar participated with General McMaster in a virtual discussion conducted by the Hoover Institution, an important US Think Tank. He also did not meet two ladies. He was questioned on India’s handling of the pandemic. He stated, “We are giving free food to as many as 800 million people. We’ve put money into bank accounts of 400 million.” To underline his statement, he explained that India was providing food stocks to two and a half times the US population and funding more than its population. How many nations were able to sustain such expenditure through these trying times and receding economies? The answer is none.

On the global projection of a ‘so called’ failing Indian Government, Jaishankar added, “I would certainly see this very much as part of a political effort to depict our current government in a certain way and obviously I have a very profound difference with that.” In recent times, the global image of India has been of funeral pyres, (mind you dead bodies wrapped as per Hindu customs only, and there were no deaths of Muslims and Christians) depicting a nation failing in its battle against the pandemic. The world has witnessed multiple waves of the pandemic.

Casualties have been higher in percentages in countries possessing smaller populations, in numbers and / or density, than India, including US, European nations – EU, Brazil, and Argentine and even over hyped New Zealand. In no case were the deceased so disrespectfully depicted as in our case. The reality in the US was that Covid casualties were buried in mass graves employing mechanical means and without permitting the next of kin to pay their last respects or be present to bid good bye. Human touch to those who lost the battle against Covid was missing.

There were also reports of Covid casualties lying in refrigerated vans for a long time in New York, awaiting mass burials. Photographs in US and western media displayed people laying flowers in an open field in remembrance of the deceased. In Italy, the situation was so depressing that the army was called in to take over casualties and hurriedly cremate them away from cities.

Most western nations, currently critical of India, adopted similar measures. Indians, on the other hand, cremated their dead with dignity and as per religious ethos, despite shortcomings and a spreading virus. It was this display of religious reverence which the media displayed to depict a failing nation. Rather than showing respect, they showed the least human values.

Victory against Covid is not determined solely by the number of casualties (dead or infected), but by protecting the majority of the population, as also catering for their essential needs during periods of enforced lockdowns. Number of casualties are dependent on the population and density within a nation; while they matter, they cannot be ultimate determinants.

Success should logically depend on reversing and defeating the Covid cycle with minimum inconvenience and suffering to the large populace. Schemes have been made to take care of orphans and pension to the bread earning families.

The fact that India being the world’s second most populated nation was bound to have higher casualties was ignored. There is no doubt the current government may have erred when it went ahead with elections, religious events and protests, adding to the spread. Fake farmers, rapists at the Tikri border still protest without mask. But why was India singled out globally?

There could be multiple reasons, including internal political one upmanship and anti-government groups grabbing an opportunity, eyeballs and an attempt to play and narrate TRPs.

There were certain fools like Barkha Dutt and the slaves like Rajdeep Sardesai, which lowered the national pride, dignity, ethos, empathy and goodwill it created with vaccine diplomacy. Such shameless cahoots, whose politics rises due to shaming the nation and they get away in the name of Freedom of Expression and Freedom of Speech. They are the new antinational of the nation. Ventilators were sold in Congress ruled states, vaccine was wasted too and in some states it was buried such that it was thought that during rains, new vaccine will sprout. Some fool hardies with long nose and ‘red topi’ denounce it to be ‘bjp vaccine’ or some cast aspersions on the capabilities of the national top virologists, but they took the vaccine.

So called experts from the WHO, changed their statements more frequently than chameleon. They just want to name, shame and peddle anti-national narrative. Twitter was promoting its anti-India voices and the national shame and national pappu was telling the world that, if vaccine is not taken early, it may run away. I could not understand where?

Pappi was busy tweeting and playing with the careers of the Indian students studying in the XIIth class to cancel the board and a slave called Pallavi Ghosh was also giving credit to Pappi Didi that it was due to the untiring efforts of her master didi, the exam was cancelled. So much of hypocrisy and sycophancy.

India’s national power has risen in recent years. It is immune to global commentators, who felt they could compel 3rd world countries to behave as per their whims and fancies. Indian economy is on the right track. GST is over One lakh crores for the 8th consecutive month despite of lockdown in April and May this year. Last year it was 32,172 crores in April and 62,009 crores in May. Sensex is above 52,000 and forex reserves are also at all time high above US$ 598.00 Billion, 5th highest in the world, after China, Japan, Switzerland and Russia.

This achievement is excellent & fantabulously fantastic. JAIHIND. #IndiaFightsBack.
