Brazil President appeal PM Narendra Modi to export hydroxychloroquine gave example of Ramayana



Brazil President appeal PM Narendra Modi

Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro, written letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a letter he has given an example of Hindu epic – the Ramayana, besides Christianity’s central figure Jesus. Ask modi to export the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, which can be used to treat coronavirus (COVID-19), patients.


Bolsonaro had asked for the supply of the drug, from India on Wednesday that is being used as a cure for the deadly virus, over a phone call with the Indian minister. The letter was written to Modi he had a conversation on phone call. Brazil has over 14,000 cases and has so far recorded 688 deaths the highest in South America.

References to both Ramayana and Christ were made against the backdrop of the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the world. India had banned the export of the drug on 26 March but after US President Donald Trump’s appeal, it allowed supplies on Tuesday.


According to media a letter which is written by President Bolsonaro“The way Lord Hanuman brought the holy medicine from the Himalayas to save the life of Lord Rama’s brother Laksmana, and also gives the example of Jesus who healed those who were sick and restored sight to Bartimeu, India, and Brazil will overcome this global crisis by joining forces and sharing blessings for the sake of all people”.


In India, the reference to the holy medicine would immediately be understood as an sign to the Sanjeevani herb, believed to have powers to heal. In Ramayana the herb is mentioned when demon king Ravana’s son Meghnada injures Lakshman, brother of the Hindu deity Rama, in a battle. Lakshman is badly injured and Hanuman is called by Rama to bring the herb from a mountain in the Himalayas. On reaching the specified mountain, Hanuman could not identify the herb and carried the whole mountain.


The reference to Jesus and Bartimeu relates to an incident narrated in the Bible’s new testament. When Jesus was leaving the town of Jericho with a large crowd, a blind man called Bartimaeus was sitting by the roadside, begging. When he heard that Jesus was passing by, he hailed him. Undeterred by rebukes from the crowd, he kept shouting for Jesus who then called the blind man to him. When asked what he wanted, Bartimaeus said he wanted his sight restored and Jesus granted him.


Besides Brazil, many countries have sought supplies of hydroxycholoroquine from India.





US based SpaceX launched off rocket ship with two astronauts after nearly a decade



SpaceX launched

Elon Musk’s SpaceX company successfully launched off a rocket ship consisting of two NASA astronauts. The rocket ship is on its way from the state of Florida to the International Space Station making it’s impression as the dawn of a new age in commercial space travel.

In almost a decade there was a blastoff from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, this is very significant for the United States as it was launched from there, it brought new hope for the humans to launch into the orbit.

NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, aged 49 and 53 respectively, launched at 3:22 pm EDT Saturday atop the company’s Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

With the take off, SpaceX became the first private company to launch people into orbit, this was previously accomplished by three governments: the US, Russia and China. The reusable, gumdrop-shaped capsule called Crew Dragon, would now take the two American astronauts to a 19-hour journey to the International Space Station (ISS). The spacecraft is scheduled to dock with the ISS at 10:29 am EDT on Sunday.

President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and thousands of American citizens had gathered to watch the launch live on a Sunday afternoon.

“I’m so proud of the people, of NASA, public and private. When you see a sight like that, it’s incredible. When you hear that sound — the roar — you can imagine how dangerous it is,” said Trump.

Congressman Kevin McCarthy said “the launch of the spacecraft is testament to American ingenuity and our country’s profound ability to overcome challenges as they arise, particularly in the age of COVID-19″.

In the US more than 1 million people have lost their lives to the coronavirus and more than 40 million people have lost their job. The pandemic has nearly destroyed the economy and pushed it into a recession. The launch of the space craft gave the Americans a reason to celebrate.

Minneapolis Updates: Outrage sparks amid George Floyd supporters



Minneapolis Updates

Violent protests are being led on over the death of an African-American man who died in police custody. A man was shot during the protests in Minneapolis for the second night. The protesters were looting stores bordering the police confined area. They were also setting fires that continued to burn until Thursday morning.

Minneapolis is in a bizarre state over the death of George Floyd as he died while in-custody of white police officers. The situation escalated since Wednesday night as fatal shooting near the site of the demonstrations due to widespread looting and deployment of tear gas.

The demonstrations in the city began peacefully for the second night but grew violent as time went by. It became very unsafe and hence the citizens were requested to leave the area.

His death is being investigated by the FBI and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

The Mayor, Mr. Jacob Frey pleaded with residents to calm down. He demanded that charges must be filed against the officer who had his knee on Floyd’s neck. Police had said Floyd resisted arrest, but Frey said “I saw nothing that would signal that this kind of force was necessary.”

“I’m imploring our city, imploring our community, imploring every one of us to keep the peace. Let’s honor George Floyd’s memory,” he said in a phone interview.

He also tweeted this on his twitter account. “Please, Minneapolis, we cannot let tragedy beget more tragedy. The area along Lake has become unsafe. We are asking for your help in keeping the peace tonight.”

An unidentified victim was rushed to Hennepin County Medical Center as the police officers found him at the protest site. He was found lying down on a sidewalk. At the hospital he was declared dead, they stated that he was shot.

Video of Floyd’s death has sparked outrage all around the country. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said about the incident on Tuesday“tragic reminder that it was not an isolated incident, but a part of an ingrained systemic cycle of injustice that still exists in this country.”

President Donald Trump took to his twitter and said “My heart goes out to George’s family and friends. Justice will be served!”

George Flyod, 46-year-old man died due to police brutality



George Flyod,

A Minneapolis police officer had been kneeling on the neck of a handcuffed black man who complained several times that he couldn’t breathe. He was later pronounced dead. This was seen on a viral video being circulated around on social media for the last 24 hours.

The department took prompt action on Tuesday and fired the four officers involved in this incident. But this was certainly not enough for his family members as well as prominent individuals.

“I would like for those officers to be charged with murder,” his sister Bridgett Floyd said during a Wednesday appearance on the “Today Show.” “Because that’s exactly what they did. They murdered my brother. He was crying for help.” “And almost the whole world has witnessed that,” she added, “because somebody was gracious enough to record it.”

READ : Minneapolis Updates: Outrage sparks amid George Floyd supporters

The state and federal authorities are investigating the case. Minneapolis police said officers were countering an alleged forgery on Monday evening. They suspected Geroge Floyd who was sitting in his car. The police claimed that he “physically resisted” after he got out hence their suspicion grew. The four Officers handcuffed Floyd who seemed to be suffering from medical distress. The police said he was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead,

Videos were captured by eye witnesses who were present at the scene of the arrest. The video clearly shows that an officer had his knee pressed against the neck of the 46-year-old, who was handcuffed on the pavement. He was constantly complaining that his body hurt and he couldn’t breathe. Two officers handled the man on the ground while another stood nearby with his eyes on the bystanders as traffic passed.

The FBI are looking into it and have said they will present their findings to the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Minnesota for consideration of possible federal charges.

The FBI also said that the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is conducting its own investigation into possible violations of Minnesota statutes.

PIA Updates: Careless pilot; ignores 3 warnings from the control room




A plane was crashed on 22 May in Karachi, Pakistan. On investigating the reason of the plane crash, 3 mistakes are coming out. According to a News Channel of Pakistan, Air Traffic Control gave 3 warnings to pilot. He turned a deaf ear towards the warning. In other words, the pilot didn’t obey the orders of ATC. On the other hand, the investigating team made by the pilot association didn’t have a single commercial pilot despite the fact the crashed plane was a commercial one.

On 22 May, a PIA plane A-320 was heading towards Karachi. This plane was crashed near Jinnah International Airport. In this accident, 97 were killed and 2 survived.

Warning 1 – Jio News with reference to ATC told that the when PIA plane A-320 was 15 nautical miles (27.78 km) away, it was at a height of 10,000 feet. At that time, ATC told the pilot to reduce the height to 7,000 feet to which the pilot responded that he was comfortable/satisfied by this height.

Warning 2 – When the plane was 10 nautical miles (18.52 km) away, the plane was 7,000 feet high. The height should be 3,000 feet to which he received the second warning from ATC. The pilot turned a deaf ear to this warning as well and responded that he was comfortable with height and will handle the situation.

Warning 3 – When the plane was not able to land in the first attempt, the pilot himself decided to go-round (roundabout motion). At the time of go-round, the plane was at a height of 1800 feet. ATC again issued the warning and told the pilot to take the plane to 3,000 feet to which the pilot responded he was trying to do so and in a few minutes, the plane crashed.

There was no lack of fuel

This is proved that there was no lack of fuel. According to reports, there was enough fuel to fly for 2.34 hours. It takes only 1.33 hours to fly from Lahore to Karachi. The investigating team is now working on was the pilot only responsible for the crash or some technical fault was also there which led to the crash.

CAA reports have been published

According to the reports of the Civil Aviation Association of Pakistan, the flight touched the runway 3 times when tried for the first landing. The sparks were also produced when flight rubbed the surface. The flight was taken off after the third touch by the pilot. It is assuming that during this time, the oil and fuel pump was damaged. It started to leak which was the reason for the plane not reaching a specific height to go-round and crashed. The crew members present in the cockpit didn’t notify the ATC.
