What does one say when the government wants to call the vaccination drive an “utsav”? By no stretch of imagination can it be a festival.

The vaccination drive is a crusade.
Having messed up the management of the production and supply sides of the vaccines, the government is covering up its massive failure through rhetoric and hyperbole.
We were the first to demand universal vaccination and get rid of the silly app and the need for pre-registration. Vaccination must be a walk-in programme
Government must immediately provide funds to ramp up production in India and increase supplies.

Government must also authorise the use of more approved vaccines and allow their manufacture or import.
We have a duopoly of two vaccines, but they are hardly sufficient to vaccinate a nation of 138 crore people.
