Medical Studies Updates


Fun way to raise awareness by “So Sorry” show
  • Social Distancing – Just stay away physically from people. We are social people, we want to do it, but do it from a distance as large you can maintain. Digitally is best.
  • Wash Hands Often – Washing with soap is best. If you have to be outside i.e. you are a service person, maintain a hand sanitizer.
  • Use Masks, Avoid Spread – Cough into handkerchief or hands or elbow or anywhere but not out in the open. Just make sure you are trapping those nasty droplets into something which you can wash or discard later. Wear Masks
  • Listen to Authorities – Let’s stick with what authorities are telling us, we are all in this together. Viruses are not biased towards anyone, they are not self aware, they are not conscious, some scientists argue they are not even living things.
  • Maintain Calm – There is tremendous panic, fear mongering, and negativity on social media especially from people whose job is political discourse. Don’t stress and don’t indulge too much into that right now.

Some Good Messages

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Lockdown Message

Complete lockdown announcement by Prime Minister

Very good tips of how to sanitize yourself and your groceries after you have bought them

A good message by HDFC Head. First maintain a personal calm, stay healthy, stop panicking. Every thing will fall into place, no need to mix every issues together. We are on the right path, let’s take this tightly run ship to it’s destination. A good message to listen to.

Interesting Hindu philosophical analysis. Four things life needs to be complete: Dharma (Duty), Artha (Money), Kama (Pleasure) and Moksha (Spirituality). Corona Virus has disrupted Artha and Kama, on which the world has completely dependent on, influenced by the Western civilization. As we go forward, we should re-order our life and living by taking such steps that ensure that Dharma governs Artha and Kama, and thereby enabling the path to Moksha. See more below.
