India in crisis: TIME magazine cover page goes viral
India’s national capital is already the most polluted city in the world and in recent weeks body burns and odors have filled the atmosphere. Crematoriums are burning multiple bodies at once and witnessing a huge stampede and this is unheard of in New Delhi, popular American magazine TIME reported.
On its cover, the headline was “India In Crisis” with people carrying a corpse against a crematorium background. TIME claimed that the situation in India is due to the ineffective leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his policies. Slogans such as ‘Make In India’ were good but on the ground they did not work as the government intended and this led to the spread of the coronavirus in the country.
TIME also criticized politicians across India. “Just as the virus hit the country, politics and elections were responsible for an epidemic worse than the first wave. PM Modi’s experiences are also one of the main reasons, ”added TIME magazine.
This exclusive cover of TIME magazine has attracted international attention. Already many international media have covered the serious situation in India and with the TIME magazine report the problem has become even more important.
But will the Indian government hold responsible for this horrific crisis?
