Yes, and how many times must a man look up– Bob Dylan
Before he can see the sky?
And how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take ’til he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
So much sorrow everywhere. Hope this video makes you smile.

I hope there is hope
While India is gasping for oxygen, one district in Maharashtra, Nandurbar, is getting patients from outside the district and state. Foresight and action from District Collector Dr Rajendra Bharud.
“I believed that soon a time could come when there could be a desperate need for oxygen and so we set up a plant with a capacity of 600 litre per minute, when there weren’t many cases and we had enough time on our hands”
“We utilised the funds from the district planning and development and the state disaster relief fund because the point is to not let a single person die because of the want of oxygen”
