RESPONSIBILITY AS INDIAN CITIZEN
As being a good and responsible citizen of the country, everyone must perform duties very loyally as: People should obey all the rule and laws made by the government. They should respect the authority and do not break rules as well as motivate others to do the same.
We can say that duties are moral or statutory responsibility of any person, which all should follow for their country. This is a task or action that every and all citizens of the country should follow like their job or profession. Performing your duties for your nation reflects a citizen’s respect for their nation. Everyone should follow all rules and regulations as well as be courteous and loyal to the responsibilities of the nation.
A person has many duties towards the nation such as: economic development and growth, cleanliness, good governance, quality education, eradicating poverty, ending all social issues, supporting in all decisive to the Government.
Being a citizen of a society, community, or country, some duties also need to be performed personally. In order to provide a bright future in the country, everyone should discharge the duties of citizenship. If a country is backward, poor, or developing, then everything depends on its citizens, even more especially when that country is a democratic country. Everyone should be a good citizen of the country as well as be loyal to the country. People should follow all the rules, regulations, and laws made by the government for safety and a better life.
They should believe in equality and proper equations in society. A common citizen, nobody should show sympathy towards crime, and voice should also be raised against it. The people of India have the right to elect the Chief Minister, Prime Minister, and other political leaders by voting, so they should not waste their votes by choosing the wrong leader who corrupts the country. However, they should know and understand their leader and vote for him. Their duty is to make the country clean and beautiful. They should not destroy and pollute the historical heritage and tourist destinations of their country. People should be interested in daily news and other daily activities to know about the good and bad news going on in the country
With any big crisis comes great responsibility. In this time of a pandemic, while there is extensive, proven value in adopting recommended personal hygiene standards, maintaining physical distance, and demanding the States and Centre provide adequate facilities for testing and treatment for the ill, it is also essential to leave that word on the top of the pile — Responsibility. Every public health emergency requires community recognition that this is an extraordinary set of circumstances requiring far-from-ordinary responses. A reasonable restriction on citizens’ rights may come into play on invoking provisions of the Epidemic Diseases Act. State police are already slapping cases on violators of the lockdown conditions; action is also being taken on those who violate quarantine. However, the strongest weapon that one can unleash against this pandemic is with every individual. The time to say this nicely is over. It is time to insist that every individual respond responsibly during this time: To inform authorities of relevant history of travel, stay in quarantine even if asymptomatic, follow all other protocols. Keeping health authorities in the loop could make the difference between life and death.
Individuals volunteering information will help the Central and State governments narrow down on the cluster cases centred around the Tablighi Jamaat conference in Nizamuddin, Delhi. The spread of cases from this one spot, which reportedly had several foreign nationals who later tested positive, and where six among those who attended died, has emerged as a key milestone in India’s management of the epidemic. The conference was held on March 13, more than a week before the Sunday lockdown. Since then, people from the conference moved on, back home, and several, including Indonesian nationals who were present at Nizamuddin, have tested positive. While the State has deployed ‘hotspot’ containment strategies in ground zero in Delhi, it is the people who have spread out in the community that are absolutely crucial, over the next few days, to shaping one stretch of the course of the epidemic in India. While it is a massive exercise to track down all the attendees (it is now believed that thousands of people were present) and each of their contacts, it must still be done. Some States have already expressed being thwarted, without co-operation from the participants, and their close contacts. Unfortunately, this may leave the job half done, or undone, leading to disastrous consequences. It is indeed a Herculean task, and may even be considered impossible, unless those who went for the meeting in Delhi step up themselves, engage with health authorities, submit themselves to a test, and remain under quarantine for the prescribed period. Humanitarian crises such as pandemics invoke the worst among men and women, but also their best. The latter is eminently possible, as long as people believe
that the enemy is the pandemic, and act responsibly.
From March 25, India initiated the most extreme step in the mitigation strategy of COVID-19 control: the lockdown. This is a very courageous step by the Indian government, and as responsible citizens we need to abide by its instructions. If we are instructed to remain at home, we need to!
In the very early stage, people who had recently travelled to other countries tested positive. This is the ‘stage of imported cases’. India followed the ‘containment strategy’ at this stage: we isolated these patients, tracked their contacts and quarantined them.
Then we had the second stage, of ‘local transmission’, wherein contacts of the patients developed the disease. At this stage, Indian public health officials continued contact-tracing and also instituted the ‘delay measures’ in the form of social-distancing, and closed offices, schools and colleges and advised against large gatherings like weddings.
Next, India expects the stage of ‘community spread’. In this stage, people with no history of contact with visitors from foreign countries or with their contacts acquire the COVID-19 infection. In the community spread stage, we need to concentrate on delay and mitigation strategies by strictly implementing social-distancing.
The last and most extreme stage is the epidemic phase, where we can have hundreds or thousands of patients with the disease within the country. In this stage of the epidemic, the most reliable control measure is an extreme mitigation step known as ‘suppression’ or ‘lockdown’. Most countries, including France, Italy and the US, initiated a lockdown at the epidemic stage. But by this time, several hundred patients were already dead in these countries.
India has followed the same strategy of containment, delay and mitigation. But the difference is we followed a quicker transition from one stage to the next relative to those in other countries. India hasn’t yet confirmed the presence of community transmission of the new coronavirus but we can’t definitively rule out this stage either. The government has already taken the extraordinary step of implementing a lockdown, the extreme mitigation measure, at a very early stage of the outbreak. Unlike other countries that initiated a lockdown at the epidemic stage, our country initiated a lockdown at the local spread stage itself.
Obey Law of Land established by our Government.
Uphold and protect sovereignty, unity and integrity of our country.
We should cherish and follow the noble idea which inspired our national development.
We should strive towards excellence in all sphere of individual and collective activity so that nation constantly rises to the higher level of endeavor and achievement.
Impact on as and when
The coronavirus pandemic has lead to an increase in air quality all around the world. Lockdowns have resulted in factories and roads shutting, thus reducing emissions.
To contain the coronavirus pandemic, billions of people have been told to stay at home. In China, authorities placed almost half a billion people under lockdown, the equivalent of nearly 7% of the world’s population. Many other countries have since taken similar measures, initially in hard-hit Italy and Spain, and more recently in the United States and India.
The restrictions have sent financial markets into free fall. But they have also given residents in some of the world’s most polluted cities something they have not experienced in years: clean air.
Reuters visualisations, based on data from NASA’s Global Modeling and Data Assimilation team, show how concentrations of some pollutants fell drastically after the lockdowns started.
The government’s change in foreign direct investment (FDI) policy and strict measures to curb opportunistic takeover due to Covid-19 crisis is expected to have a significant impact on investment by Chinese players like Alibaba, Tencent and Xiaomi in companies such as Paytm, Ola, Bigbasket, Byju’s, Dream11, MakeMyTrip and Swiggy for follow up funding.
This is also expected to reduce the inflow of investments in new companies as well as the merger and acquisition scenario in the country. However, there is a view that the press note 3 regarding FDI in India will have a greater impact on listed entities.
So impact is integrating from a to z type of attributes.
