    Mexico's grave coronavirus situation in numbers!

    Nobody is talking about the extremely serious COVID-19 situation in Mexico. While little less than half a million coronavirus cases might seem normal to some considering countries like India, Brazil are much further ahead, let alone the USA, which has over 10 times the number of cases, the death ratio of Mexico is alarming even in the best-case scenario. Mexico has had over 54,000 deaths reports, which puts it at number 3 only behind USA and Brazil. If you compare that to the number of cases it has, over 10 per cent of COVID-19 patients in Mexico have died. This is much more serious situation than is being let on. 

    If we talk about the closed COVID-19 cases in the country, over 14 per cent people have succumbed to the illness.

    India is remembering Bhikaji Rustom Cama on her birth anniversary today. Bhikaji Cama holds a distinct place in India's freedom struggle. She championed the cause of Indian Independence on foreign soil. The British government once asked her to sign an agreement that she would not engage in nationalistic activities on return to India from London. Cama refused. She went to Paris. Formed the Paris India Society and continued to galvanise the Indians abroad or people supporting India's democratic peaceful struggle for Independence diaspora for more vocal support to India's Independence Movement. 

    On 22 August 1907, Cama attended the second Socialist Congress at Stuttgart, Germany, where she described the devastating effects of a famine that had struck the Indian subcontinent. She made an appeal for India's autonomy and hoisted a flag that came to be known as the "Flag of Indian Independence".
