Ever since the start of the epidemic back in February 2020, I was one among the many optimists (read: scientific outsiders) who believed this is probably an aggressive version of common flu and will come to an end by October 2020 and in conservative estimates, normal air travel would resume…


Disclaimer: I am one among the many fans of Pa.Ranjith, the south Indian Film Director who wish him success in his endeavours to make the society more progressive whilst bringing Dalit issues to the mainstream focus and attention.
