    Modi, we do not want your advice nor your help. Look after your own country where the way covid-19 is spreading now has parallel to what happened to your country one hundred years ago when ten million Indians died of the Spanish Flu.

    Modi, left his migrant workers and their families starve and die while taking perilous journeys back to their impoverished villages. Getting a praise from leader of his caliber is rich.
