Failories newsletter


👋 Hi Failories! New week, two new interviews.

The first is with the founder of Wavve, a SaaS that turns podcasts and any other audio into a video. It has grown a lot lately, especially through content marketing and word of mounth, and has reached $76k in MRR.

StayHomeStaySafe #CoronaVirus #ChineseVirus – No guarantee you will survive; if you don’t step out for essential supplies in Bengaluru.


#StayHomeStaySafe #CoronaVirus #ChineseVirus – No guarantee you will #survive; if you don’t step out for essential supplies in #Bengaluru.

Public Distribution system has failed here.

The Government of, for and by the people has given chance to HOARDERS, BLACKMARKETEERS, PROFITEER Business people yet AGAIN to make money as they fund the ruling party at the “Election Hustings”.  Very sad sign of BLACK CORRUPTION IN in its dirtiest, Naked form seen

Yesterday, I ventured out in #Lockdown to buy some medicines which were nearly finished and carried a carrybag to see if I can get some groceries items in #Lockdown due to #chineseVirus in Horamavu, Bangalore.
1st shop – Queue of 15 people at 630pm. Got Cadburys. One Oil pack – 30 minutes. Some leftover packs of Farsaan.
1st Chemist shop- 15 people in Squares -waited for 20 minutes – I calculated it may need me 2 hours of standing – so I went to another
2nd shop – Home buzz – our regular Grocery/ fruit/ vegetable shop closed – no stocks
3rd shop – No fruits / Veg – I am told they open early in morning at 5 am and stock finishes b/w 7 and 9 am max
4th shop – Enter with Mask only – I had to buy one from chemist shop but managed to enter with a long handkerchief tied over my mouth and nose (like the hindi movie goons). Big shop – Except cosmetics – most food item Racks empty. No Marie biscuits. some local brands. Picked one leftover Sugarfree biscuit packet. Some eggs. A brown bread (?rationing – one per person rule). August 19 Mfd Sundrop blue -Oil pack – in the dirtiest condition the only one left – did not feel like buying – paid by card. Cashier put the machine before me to remove card myself.
5th shop – my regular chemist – gave me a Mask in a brown envelope quietly (Publicly – no masks are available and I don’t ask for price). Got most medicines – his shelves too mostly empty. Chattering with his wholeseller and sharing gossip/. rumors. Said Insulin may go in short supply – bought in PANIC – paid by card and returned. This whole thing took 2.45 hours.
Take away – 1 Rise early – if you want veggies/ fruits – now I know the shops which will open. 2. carry own bag. 3. Card only – most traders hesitant to touch currency notes. 4. Have. a list – you may not get all what you came for. There is nothing like impulse buying. 5. Queues can take longer than usual.
Narendra Modi BS Yediyurappa ji – the rumors are HOT! this is the fastest growing suburb and I heard in all shops – 13-16 POSITIVE COVID19 cases in this locality and some people saying the PDS has failed , law and order failed, people roaming streets and they expect ARMY TO DO FLAG MARCH in 2 days as if it is child’s play. Empty minds are devil’s workshops and this is most dangerous. In our RWA there was a concern and WhatsApp group says after tests one lady tested negative but was asked to self-quarantine. I wonder how other RWAs in Bengaluru are managing.
Watch TV – especially ABP news and you see the EXODUS from Delhi which is made out in comparison like 1947 paretition. No PURVANCHALI BJP Leader in sight e.g. the CM candidate of BJP Manoj Tiwari. TV Blaming it on Total Intelligence failure like the Delhi riots ( rumor is AAP Govt exposed all intelligence apparatus of Police, IB, NIA, CIA and made ineffective hence riots spread – God knows the truth).
Twitter is on a warpath with Chinese Virus or Corona Virus funded by Chinese as their last ditch attempt at cleaning up image and reputation – people blaming Governments – finding Design in Top country leaders getting affected. Cynical about WHO and impotent UN which have to share blame with CHINA apart from feet dragging world leaders to tackle the endemic.

An exclusive daily alert
Ø  Leaders of the Group of 20  yesterday pledged to infuse over $5 trillion into the global economy, and do “whatever it takes” to minimize the economic and social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. In a joint statement issued after the G-20’s first ever virtual summit, chaired by Saudi Arabia, members committed themselves to restore global growth, maintaining market stability and strengthening resilience. Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed the need for greater efforts to coordinate activities of nations for controlling the coronavirus.

Ø  Indian rupee rose sharply against the US dollar  yesterday tracking strong gains in domestic equity markets. After opening at 75.88 per dollar, the rupee moved to 75.09 at day’s high, as compared to the previous close of 76.10. Investor sentiment was supported on announcements of stimulus measures by many governments across the globe to combat the impact of coronavirus on the economy. Meanwhile, the dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against the basket of six currencies, was trading 0.26% lower at 100.79.

Ø  India rolled out a Rs 1.7 trillion relief package, amounting to about 1% of its gross domestic product, marking an aggressive attempt to limit the economic damage caused by the coronavirus outbreak and tackle the loss of livelihood of millions of poor hit by an unprecedented 21-day nationwide lockdown. The relief package, under a newly framed Prime Minister Garib Kalyan Yojana, aims to alleviate the financial pain faced by migrant workers, farmers, urban and rural poor and women.
Highlights of the economic relief package for those affected by the lockdown:

o    Front loading of income support to benefit 86.9 mn farmers

o    Raising wages under MGNREGA to benefit 50 mn families

o    One-time payment of Rs 1,000 to aged people, widows, disabled

o    200 mn women with no-frills bank A/Cs to get Rs 500 for next 3 months

o    District mineral funds to be used for testing and screening

Ø  Several noted hospitals across the country say they are ready for treatment of the novel coronavirus patients after mock drills and dry run for the specialized treatment. Government has been urging the private sector to rope in for testing as well as treatment since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis

Ø  All international commercial passenger flights will remain suspended till April 14, aviation regulator DGCA announced  yesterday amid a nationwide lockdown to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Ø  Domestic stock market benchmark Sensex   surged over 1,400 points today after posting its best gain in over a decade in the previous session. The US Senate has passed a US$2 trillion virus relief bill, boosting equity market sentiment across the globe.

Ø  Any registered medical practitioner can treat Covid-19 patients remotely or by using telemedicine tools, the Union health ministry said yesterday. The long-pending guidelines on telemedicine finally saw the light of day, in the wake of the unprecedented health crisis facing the country. The guidelines proposed 10 years ago were finally sanctioned by the Centre to cope with the Covid-19 outbreak.

Ø  President Donald Trump will hear recommendations from the White House coronavirus task force this weekend on plans to “open the country up.” The new guidance will come days after the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. surpasses China or Italy, making it the country with the largest outbreak in the world. Vice President Mike Pence said that the task force will share “a range of recommendations and additional guidance for going forward” with the next steps in its efforts to blunt the impact of the coronavirus.

Ø  New Hampshire is the latest state to issue a stay-at-home order and close all nonessential businesses amidst the coronavirus outbreak. Gov. Chris Sununu announced the order Thursday and it goes into effect March 27 at 11:59 pm.  Essential businesses that will remain open in New Hampshire include grocery stores, pharmacies and gas stations.

Ø  Federal prosecutors wanted to criminally charge Walmart, the world’s biggest retailer, over the company’s opioid sales to customers, a new report says. Top Trump administration law enforcement officials killed that effort, the ProPublica report said. Prosecutors found that the retail company distributed opioids in several states to customers who then died of overdose.

Ø  Nancy Pelosi indicates she wants another round of direct payments on top of the ones passed in the Senate stimulus bill. The House is set to vote Friday on the US$2 trillion relief package.  Pelosi and other top lawmakers have suggested Congress will need to take more steps to provide relief during the crisis.

Ø  New York coronavirus cases continue to surge, topping 37,258 as the state scrambles to find enough hospital beds and ventilators to handle the coming onslaught of patients, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.   More than 5,300 residents have already been hospitalized and the state is projecting that will climb to 140,000 over the next two to three weeks. He also called  the stimulus bill designed to ease the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the country “irresponsible” and “reckless.” “The congressional action in my opinion simply failed to address the governmental need,” Cuomo said at a press conference in Albany on Thursday. The coronavirus bill provides US$5 billion to New York, which doesn’t come close to covering state’s projected revenue shortfall, Cuomo said.
