  2. Meanwhile Parliament and its Motel is still open even when two people have died of covid-19, all because the humble leader wants Bill 10 to go through at all costs.

  3. Shocked that this can happen to Airtel, they usually have poor connectivity. Wonder how it was picked up.

  4. The new normal. Most companies with time will learn and adapt to the new normal. We will see companies investing in remote working facilities etc. Local outbreaks are happening world wide. Nothing sinister. Next
