Nothing new! This is the way administration has made the entire system highly corrupted so that specially selected people can do whatever they like with full immunity. Impunity is the culture now. This is the only culture we know. Other than that we remained especially people with power and money above all kinds of laws. We are now almost a complete lawless society, while many societies are very good in making pro-people laws and follow them strickly.
Corona is just a test. We got almost three months to get prepared to challenge this health crisis. But practically we did nothing. If talks could solve all our problems then why we need working culture? Where is our professionalism? We do not even understand the pros and cons of professionalism. For example, hardly you would find a professional teacher, doc, or nurse. Everyone is a politician and highly insensitive to the rights of others. On the other hands, everyone sees too many rights of his or her violated only by others. That is the way we made our capital city, country, and towns mostly inhabitable. Villages are being destroyed on regular basis. Business with religious, environmental and health issues are going as usual. From govt. Servants to talk shows are of same categories of parasites, which boosted of themselves as patriots.
All are calling BB as the father of nation on the one hand and then find too many national fathers and mothers in front of them, who allows them to destroy all norms and institutions that could save us from catastrophe approaching to us. Now young generations are left out from everything. They are deprived of real edu and genuine health care. Still they are the real catalysts of changes that are becoming inevitable.
