Surprisingly today saw few shops opened and there was so much rush and line to buy innerwears that these shops went oos in no time. Guys bought lots of stock may be for another year.:p
Men were so relaxed, tomorrow they will rejoice wearing new undies and click selfie and share on insta it seems...

And someone earlier was bragging about innerwear with holes, well this is a plain answer to him that yes innerwears are equally important in this lockdown and not just medicines and food else these people arent fools to buy them and would have been happy covering their holes with holed clothes!

Got a tech related question. Is the Setu app's source code open?
A guy from Poland I know is stuck in Delhi since March. He asked me this question.
I tried googling it, but didn't understand anything.

I'm not sure off this but I have read it somewhere that its design/implementation is based on Israel's Hamagen Covid App - which is openly available on GitHub. Since this app is in React - if the developers of Setu app might have ported features - it might be possibility (but this is all assumptions based on the information available across)

Source of this info - Bluetooth P6 Approach - Whitepaper on describing to use Bluetooth or BLE to implement the privacy preserving proximity matching

That's executive board's chairman. They have no real power or authority.
If Trump walks out, there will be severe cash crunch.
These board members don't take any technical decision, as they do not have adequate qualifications.
WHO will gradually become irrelevant unless they manage to convince few specialists to join the board ( but they won't, as the professional fees they get is lot higher, more than double than the administrators)
Some have already joined CDC ( somehow CDC loves us and Trump wants us to join CDC asap!! with insane offers)
The offers are so good, even we are in in dilemma.
WHO ( once THE BEST place to work for) has already become a past experience in our résumés.
Sad times...unless something really radical happens in January election, we are out.

I guess Trump will not be re-elected.

Now govt. went crazy in overconfidence by opening ticket windows on stations for rail bookings. Probably the worst ever decision in current situation... They are inviting corona COME CORONA COME and fk us openly... Why the hell they want to allow people to travel needlessly??? The bihari laborerers are already on their way home with spl trains now why open railways?

I am sure someone has told Indian govt about herd-immunity and now they want to achieve it as soon..

Really sad. That's health ministry talking through ICMR.
Maharashtra alone has more than thousand cases where no definite source of infection could be found ( 1 such case = community transmission)
West Bengal ( mostly Kolkata) will have a big surge of cases soon.
Spoke to Didi over phone, really feeling sad for her. After the cyclone, there's nothing much anyone can do.
Surprisingly came to know about that cyclone from a local news channel. The Indian national news channels ( which I have access to) didn't really cover the natural disaster, can't access any Bengali channel for a week now!!
