      Mahua Moitra
      Ten days into the COVID-19 lockdown and I'm hoping beyond hope that the next time the Prime Minister warns us he's coming on television, he will ditch the "motivational" announcements and grandstanding and finally announce a proper economic stimulus package.

      IP Bajpai
      While Italy may be a marker, since we haven't as yet had the same experience, it is possible that we may escape the worst of the European experiences because we went into lockdown much earlier and also, we had cut connections with the world even before that.

      Brinda Karat
      India's unity, so crucial in the battle to save India's people from Coronavirus, will be strengthened if the government of India would keep the democratic and federal character of the constitutional framework in mind when taking decisions which affect the whole country.

      Maitreesh Ghatak
      We are waging a war against an invisible but common enemy. It is time to put aside our differences - we sink or swim together.

      Mihir Swarup Sharma
      When Prime Minister Narendra Modi first addressed the nation on March 19, he told us that a task force would be set up to deal with the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

    • COVID-19 Lockdown Is Needed But May Not Solve The Problem
      Dr. Arvinder Singh Soin
      Clearly, COVID-19 isn't going away anytime soon. It will surface again. Eventually, unless effective treatment and vaccine become available, herd immunity will play a big part in taming it. This means around 60% of the population needs to develop immunity to it by actually getting infected.

    • PM Modi's 21-Day Lockdown Will Change India Forever
      Mihir Swarup Sharma
      Modi's message on Tuesday evening was even starker than most expected. From midnight, this country of 1.3 billion will shut down: "For 21 days, forget what going out means."

    • Indian Doctors On How Hospitals Should Handle Covid-19
      If the ongoing situation is going to last months, as speculated, it will need truly innovative measures and sacrifices of the medical fraternity, with many having to don new masks - not just physically but also professionally and metaphorically - to save their fellow countrymen.

    • Mr Prime Minister, Wrong To Have Kept Parliament In Session
      Derek O'Brien
      It's not easy to turn down an invitation from Rashtrapati Bhavan. Earlier this month, I was mortified at having to do this not once but twice. I was invited by the President of India for breakfast meetings with groups of MPs on March 13 and then, on my polite refusal, on March 18.
