However, essential services and travel due to medical emergency will be allowed. Similarly Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said that considering the rapid increase in Coronavirus cases in the state (especially Mumbai and Pune), the government was likely to increase the lockdown till May 18.


Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal indicated that ending the lockdown will not be easy. Delhi witnessed a record surge in Coronavirus cases on Sunday. As many as 293 people tested positive for COVID-19 infection, taking the total number of cases in the state to 2,918.

Mumbai April 27: Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami was interrogated on Monday by the N M Joshi Marg police station in connection with multiple cases by Congress functionaries over his comments criticising Sonia Gandhi on Palghar lynching of Sadhus.

He was interrogated for over two hours in the case which has been filed by Congress leader Nitin Raut in Maharashtra and other Congress functionaries elsewhere in the country. Earlier, the Supreme Court had directed that all the charges against him would be investigated via a single FIR in Mumbai. Arnab was accompanied by his lawyer Sujay Kantawala.

Arnab upheld that truth will win, and that he has nothing to hide. The Republic TV had reported on Sunday that the Mumbai police had sent two notices within a span of 12 hours seeking to immediately interrogate him over his comments against Sonia Gandhi. Arnab accused the Maharashtra government of subjecting him to “political, malicious and motivated” charges.

In the video Arnab asked the Mumbai Police Commissioner to also investigate the midnight attack on him and his wife in the city and accused the cops of covering up the charges against the Congress party. “ I would urge the Mumbai Police to show similar alacrity and a sense of immediacy in investigating the attack on me and my wife, at 12:15 AM  on 23 April, 2020”. He alleged that the attack on him was ordered on the instructions of the highest Congress leadership and that there is a lot of political prejudice involved in the matter.

In a show related to recent mob lynching of two Sadhus in Palghar in Maharashtra, Arnab had said that “Will Sonia Gandhi remain quiet? She is quiet today and she is happy that the saints have been killed where her government is ruling. She will send a report to Italy that she is getting saints killed in a place where her government is ruling and she will get praises for that”.

Arnab and his wife Sambyabrata Ray Goswami was attacked by two Youth Congress office bearers near his office at Worli in South Central Mumbai. The attackers also reportedly said that they were sent by their “higher ups”. They also threw some liquid which fell on their car. Thereafter the  N M Joshi Marg police registered an FIR ( 148/2020) under sections 341, 501 read with section 34 IPC. However the FIR did not mention about the attack by the Youth Congress workers.

In a letter sent to Mumbai police on Sunday, Goswami, questioned the failure of the police to mention that the attackers were Congress youth leaders. The attackers threw some liquid, but luckily he escaped. It could have been an acid or any other inflammable material, he stated in the letter. The Congress is trying to stifle his organisation, he alleged.

The Supreme Court in its Interim Order last week has already granted three weeks of interim protection to Arnab. The protection was granted while hearing the petition filed by  him, challenging the FIRs registered against him in various parts of the country. The matter was heard by two-judge bench, comprising Justices Dr D Y Chandrachud and M R Shah. The SC ruled that no coercive action can be taken against him and he can move an anticipatory bail application in three weeks.

The Mumbai police is required to ensure the safety of Arnab and his family. Congress leaders in different states had filed FIRs against him for exposing the alleged hypocrisy of Congress President Sonia Gandhi. They were also upset with Arnab referring to Sonia Gandhi by her maiden name Antonia Maino.

Apropos to the Press Release No.22, dated 25.04.2020 issued by te Addl. Director (MD) & Spokesperson, Director of Health Services- “The State Health Department would like to rebut a news item published in the Imphal Times on 22nd April under the heading ‘Lack of Infrastructures Equipment in District Hospital Tamenglong-a serious concern for denizens’.
The Addl Director listed 5 activities taken by the State Health Departments, of which four refer to the provisions of PPE, mask, hand sanitizer, gloves and jars of Sodium Hypochlorite solutions, Isolation beds and quarantine centre to combat the Covid-19 Pandemic. However, the press release is silent on the other if not more critical issues of combating the COVID-19 Pandemic like establishing ICU beds with Ventilator in the 100 bedded District Hospital , Ambulances for Transportation of COVID- 19 Patients as per medical protocols which is 150 kms away from JNIMS or RIMS. The COVID-19 prevention items delivered to the district hospital is not sufficient enough. It is reported that Doctors are reusing the disposable mask by washing since it is not sufficient to fight the virus for this long.
The last and fifth point of the Press Release refers to the special activities, Surgical Outreach Camps and other various health camps. It is reported that over 600, operations both minor and major operations have been undertaken in these health camps. But because of the lack of Blood Banks in the 100 bedded District hospitals, any operations conducted in the Tamenglong District is extremely high risk. Till date the demand since 2008 to the State Health Department to establish Blood bank in Tamenglong District Hospital has fallen on deaf ear. Only life saving operation at great risk to the patients because of lack of blood bank are conducted in the 100 bedded Tamenglong District Hospital. Blood bank is a critical infrastructure for Tamenglong District hospital which is 150 kms away from Imphal. It is reported that the Surgical Team in the said health campaigns have to bring their own Work Anaesthesia Operator/Anaesthesia work station because of the lack of this critical equipment in the OT of the 100 bedded Tamenglong District Hospital.
The new 100 bedded District Hospital building was inaugurated by the Chief Minister N.Biren Singh on the 15th of November, 2017. However the upgraded 100 Tamenglong District Hospital continues to face lots of infrastructural challenges, shortage of Doctors, nurses, and paramedics, lack of basic equipment and other basic amenities.
Doctors and nurses and paramedical staffs posted to Tamenglong are seen as a punishment posting. As against the required post, the State Health Department will give posting order to Doctors and nurses to the District hospital, and the PHCs of the Tousem, Tamei, and Oinamlong, but within a week after lobbying with the Ministers will be transfer out, making a mockery of the attempt to station Doctors and nurses in the hospitals and PHC s of Tamenglong District.
No amount of rebutting by State health officials through press releases will improve the conditions of the 100 bedded District Hospital. Only a sincere and dedicated action of the State Health Department by providing sufficient doctors, nurses and paramedics with adequate medical equipments and facilities as per the guidelines of Indian public Health standard of 100 bedded hospital for Tamenglong District hospital will address the serious concern for Tamenglong Denizens.

Today, the Prime Minister of India is deliberating with the Chief Ministers of the states on the manner in which current lockdown imposed across the country is to be carried on further and how. And while a spike in the number of infections is seen across many states in the country, Manipur and most of the North Eastern states are faring much better, and it is more than likely that some sort of phased relaxation procedure of the Lockdown will be drawn up for the state during the discussion. While a strict and continuing lockdown will worsen the situation of a majority of the public in the state given the agrarian nature of the state economy, any haste, and indeed any lapse of precaution and social responsibilities on the part of the public or the authorities during the relaxation phase will render all the sacrifices, efforts and collective endeavors upto this point of time an utter waste, and more importantly might very well prove to be a recipe for disaster. Plans are already afoot to bring home a large number of Manipuris stranded at various places due to the countrywide lockdown presently in effect, and quarantine centres have also been reportedly prepared. The state authorities should make sure that the locals residents near these quarantine and isolation centres have realized their unfounded fears of transmission of the virus as was reported earlier, and if there still are the remotest possibility of such, advanced sensitization on the subject should be carried out to ensure no unwanted opposition or obstruction of work ensues. Reports of defective testing kits are another cause for concern which should be given due consideration by the experts and authorities. There are also reports of re-infection of patients which were previously declared virus-free brings clearly proves that one does not necessarily develop immunity to Covid-19 after one is cured of the infection, while a definite answer to the question of how long the virus remains dormant or present in a cured person is still eluding the experts.
Perhaps the most unsettling development regarding the threat of Covid-19 transmission in the state is the reported rise of Covid-19 positive cases in neighboring country Myanmar, with several of the more than 100 cases occurring in areas bordering India. Accordingly, the state government has intensified fencing work and upped vigil along the India-Myanmar border with the deployment of additional security personnel. But if the pictures of the fences circulated in the print and electronic media is anything to go by, it serves the purpose of demarcating the two countries but will do nothing to deter anyone from crossing over from either side, and as it stands, Manipur shares about 398 Kilometres of border with Myanmar, a large part of it inaccessible in the best of times.
In view of these developments, the state authorities need to review its preparedness in fighting the Covid-19 infection, and instead of belting out numbers as a means of assurance, it should look into the worst-case scenario and prepare for it while there is still time and sanity still prevails.

The current global pandemic of coronavirus (COVID-19) have already affected more than 2.8 million people and took the precious lives of more than 2 lakhs people. During this difficult time it is natural to ask, why our Honorable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modiji asked the citizens of India to connect with the Mobile-Apps AarogyaSetu? Why WHO, Facebook, Chinese—WeChat, Baidu, Weibo and many other Apps of the World are trying to connect every individuals on this Planet Earth? Why Modiji wear the Manipuri Leirum (gamcha) and indicated the importance of Manipur? Why April 21-24, 2020 is the last date for deciding the extension or removal of the Worldwide COVID-19 Lock-Downs? Why some economically backward countries (e.g. Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar etc.) are surprisingly having fewer COVID-19 cases, than the economically advanced countries? There are many classified questions, which cannot be covered in this article as of now. However, the questions asked by common-men are very simple and the answers should also be very simple.
Before we start, let us recollect the prophesied phrase, ‘It’s happening!’ by the famous seer, Nostradamus, and about the prediction of ‘the King—Chiren’! The predictions of the Vedic and the Mayan, also seems to be somewhat materialized. Yesterday news mentioned that a Mayan Workshop buried for more than 1000 years have been uncovered, but yet to be analyzed.
The answers to the various questions given above, may be little annoying to us, because it involved studies of both science and paranormal predictions. However, our inquisitiveness, will lead us to a dream world of ‘whether things are really happening or not’?
When we deal with the Universe—it is too big for us to even think about and to understand its existence. So let us, for the time being, concentrate only on our Solar System. Every one of us believed that the Sun is the main source of all the energies in our solar system. It gives us everything and without it—there will be no life forms in this mega-ecosphere. Well, how about the Moon, the Saturn, the Jupiter, the Mars, the Venus, the Mercury, the dark North Node and the dark South Node (in Vedic astrology they are called as Rahu and Ketu)? Do the planets have influences on our ecosphere?
The simple answer is ‘yes’ and obviously like our Sun, the planets also have different roles to play in our Solar System. It also impacted our planet earth and our daily (day-to-day) cycles. This is a very simple layman answer and as I am not an astronomer like Prof. Carl Sagan, it will be very difficult for me to explain about the conjunctions, attractions, combustions, etc. of the various planets studied in astronomy. However, based on my expertise on the atmosphere and ecosystem relationships, some doubt can be clarified as follows.
We know that the Sun gives life and dead to our planet earth. Other celestial bodies also have their roles to play in regenerating and ending of certain forms of living and non-living entities. In the present case, the ‘coronaviruses’ or any types of viruses or microorganisms are the transitions or ‘bridges’, between living and nonliving things. When microscopic virions entered the host cells through different vectors and received the following: (a) favorable environmental conditions and (b) energies to activate virions e.g. +ve, -ve along with a neutral charges (similar to our electric currents for lighting bulbs)—the nonliving virions become a very simple parasitic ‘Living Organisms’! In the case of the receiving energies, it can be potentially from the celestial bodies (Planets). The potentially strong celestial energies received on earth may also help trigger the germinations of even the ‘human’s sperms’ inside mother’s womb. Recently, I have coined a term as ‘Tiklak’, for such types of germination/s due to the major planetary influences. If the germination/s occurred in human, it will be seemingly impossible to understand, when, where, how, the birth will take place on this planet earth. However, in the near future we may come to know about the birth and the existence of a super-human, which is just the matter of time.
Thus, the ‘Great Conjunction’ of the most benefic planet Jupiter (+ve), most malefic planet Saturn (-ve) and a neutral North or South Node (Rahu or Ketu), will help in regenerating nonliving things (primordial soups) into living things (atma). When the conjunction takes place in a good house and environment, it will give us excellent or beneficial organisms (e.g. Pegivirus, Gamma-herpesviruses, Smallpox vaccine, Rama, Buddha, Jesus, Allah etc.), but if it happened in a bad environment or house, it will give us ‘demon’ (e.g. Coronavirus, SARS, Smallox, Commodus, Hitler, Ravana etc.)!
To further explain the concept, our planet earth’s atmosphere is crisscross by tremendous fields of geomagnetic and electromagnetic energies from the earth crust, mobiles, internets, telecommunications, radios, TVs, etc. These radiations interferes the incoming harmful or bombarding ‘Cosmic Rays’ in a very dramatic manner and sometime it acts like a ‘Shield’, protecting all the living organisms on this planet, for survival and from total annihilations!
On the more controversial note, it can be speculated (but not impossible) that there are about 7 gifted people on this planet (Vedic literatures also mentioned about Saptarishis), who have the unique and strong conjunctions of Jupiter, Saturn and Rahu/Ketu (JSR/K) in different houses of their natal birth chart (Navamsa) at the time of their birth. These 7 gifted individuals (Gurus), when combined together (even if living in very remote areas of the planet); they will form an energy shield, which can block the bombarding negative cosmic radiations of JSR/K.
In very simple details, we can take them as our own X-Men, who are genetically modified mutants and the coronaviruses will have very less impact on them and their surroundings. Their bodies may acts like a large ‘Lightning Rods’, absorbing the celestial strikes and be conducted to ground or dispersed it as harmless weak energies in their immediate surroundings. During the processes, they may or may not know anything about the absorbed energies; however, they may feel uncomfortable like headaches, nausea, vomiting or minor fever etc. They may be prone to sinusitis and early graying of hairs. Cloudy nights, high winds, rainy and thunderstorm days will bring them some respites. It is scientifically proven that during cloudy or thunderstorm periods, the radio, television and other signals are interrupted. Similarly, the celestial signals will be interrupted during various atmospheric phenomena. As the receiving celestial signals become weak at the surface, the 7 Gurus will also feel better. However, they cannot be regarded as aliens, for they cannot stop the bombarding rays from the planets; their role is to just absorb the weak celestial signal and disperse it into the environment. As of now, I don’t find any scientific evidence to support the fact that every one of us has the ability to absorb certain amounts of planetary signals. However, the astrological analysis of a person and the relationships between the various planets present during the time of birth, which are recorded in the horoscope are used for predicting a person personality. In the present scenario, many of us are not born during the time of JSR/K conjunction period. Therefore, the rare celestial occurrence, the simultaneous influences of the large planets and the larger signals received on the earth’s surface will have some detrimental effects within or outside of our body.   
On the contrary, if we are to search for the 7 Gurus (among the 9 billion populations of the World)—it will be like ‘searching a needle in hay stack’! The bad news is that the viruses as of now, are evolving and mutating in a dramatic way, that if we are not able to make a ‘Bridge of the 7 Gurus’, before April 21-24, 2020, the COVID-19 may evade our genetic tranquility and it may be the end of ‘Kali Yuga’ and the beginning of the famously called ‘Satya Yuga’!
The good news is that coronavirus is just a ‘bug’ and it can be tackled in the near future by developing vaccine/s. However, if a super-human (Tiklak) created by the great conjunction become materialized, then he will definitely try to bring changes (justices) on this planet, during our lifetime. About the consequences of the transitions between coronavirus and Tiklak, it cannot be foretell (as a mere human being)–but it is already mentioned in many religious and astrological books. The experience although, will be very exciting one!
Coming to our Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji, twice, he had asked his billion peoples of India to disperse the ever increasing bombardments of the celestial energies, firstly by clapping billion hands and secondly by lighting billion lamps (but not from electric current i.e. +ve, -ve and neutral), simultaneously. For the third and the final onslaught to the incoming negative energies, the whole World is asked to connect with various forms of Apps, Bluetooth, GPS or Social Medias. Correct information on the date-of-birth and place-of-birth are mandatory to receive the important information about COVID-19. In India, the government is asking everyone to connect through ‘AarogyaSetu’, meaning ‘the Restoration of the Bridge’, similar to ‘Rama Setu’ to kill ‘Ravana’. Can be say that the mammoth tasks of searching our 7 Gurus, worldwide are tirelessly undergoing? Comically, one drawback in India is that our actual date-of-birth is totally different from our academic date-of-birth e.g. 1st February.
Interestingly, while addressing the second lock downs of India on April 14, 2020, our PM wore a Manipuri Leirum (Gamcha), giving importance to the tiny state of Manipur. Does it meant that one of the strong energy signal i.e. the presence of a Guru, is received in the Radar of the Prime Minister Office, which may be located somewhere in Manipur? Earlier in my Facebook Posts, the importance of Manipur had been mentioned and looking for the JSR/K conjunction in the Navamsa chart people. On the other hand, unaware of the importance of himself/herself, our Heroes are roaming among us. Manipur is now a Zero COVID-19 State. Nostradamus prediction of ‘Chiren’, can it be ‘Chairen’?
Notably on April 17, 2020, according to the Daily Star reports, NASA is currently tracking an asteroid known as 2020 GT2, which is larger and faster than 2020 GR2. The 2020 GT2 measures about 177ft tall and fly past Earth at a speed of over 29,000 mph. NASA estimated that 2020 GT2 is expected to intersect Earth on April 17, 2020 at 1.07am on Saturday morning. So, our Solar System is becoming very excited and full of activities. Our Mother Earth too, is excited with two consecutive earthquakes, first in New Delhi with a Magnitude 3.5 on April 12, 2020 and secondly in Falam Myanmar, just few kilometers away from Manipur with a Magnitude 5.9 on April 16, 2020. On the other hand, since April 15, 2020, the atmosphere over Manipur seems to be celebrating something, without any casualty and giving relief to the drought like situation. Can we regard it as good omen?  
All the living organisms on our planet Earth cannot survive without the Sun and other sources of energies. Lights if unfavorable—can change many metabolic, physiological, chemical, psychological or anatomical set-ups of living flora and fauna (e.g. circadian rhythm, growth pattern, DNA damages, mutations etc). Therefore, it is for kind information that on December 21, 2020 (mid austral summer in Antarctica and the darkest in the Arctic), the two great planets Jupiter and Saturn will have the ‘Great Conjunction’ in the house of Aquarius at 0.6 degree, the rarest conjunction after the year 1623. This rare conjunction may develop ‘radiation pollutions’ from malefic planets, which is still in the nascent stage of scientific research.
As of now, please follow the instructions of the WHO, all the Governments, organization/institutions and also download/install AarogyaSetu Apps and other Apps. Observing social-distancing, using of face mask, hands washing and helping the doctors, the policemen, the CSOs, the frontline workers and the needy people etc.
Some personal suggestions are:
1. ‘Sky Watching’ (evening and nighttime) until February 2021 may affect our immune system functions due to high celestial radiations from malefic planets. Staying indoors during clear evening and night is suggested. Volunteers, workers and government personnel—wearing heavy cloths and caps during evening and night, will reduce the impacts of the incoming cosmic radiations.
2. Cloudy and rainy days and nights are safer than clear and bright days and nights. Lightning and thunder storms interfere, disperse, disrupt and minimize the impacts of the bombarding cosmic electromagnetic radiations from celestial bodies. Therefore, outing and playing during cloudy, rainy, sunny and windy days will be beneficial.
3. Indoor exercises, games and keeping our immune system intact, by eating/consuming fruits and vegetables (blue and yellow colors most preferably) will help in fighting the viruses.
4. Family prayers, Yoga (simple anoolom-viloom), meditations, fasting (recommended only for young and dynamic people), watching movies, mobile chatting, online-learning etc will help us overcome from Lock-Downs effects.
