What are the details of India's lockdown ?

Indian PM Narendra Modi has just announced the most wide-ranging lockdown the world has seen yet

- with some 1.3 billion people affected.

Here are the key points of his address:

The lockdown will be "absolute" and in force for 21 days
No citizen will be allowed to leave their homes during this period
It will come into force from midnight local time tonight
Mr Modi said it was the only way to break the cycle of the virus and that if the country
could not manage the next 21 days, it would be set back by 21 years
He also announced a fund of nearly $2bn (£1.7bn) towards health infrastructure in combating the coronavirus
He called on people not to spread rumours and to follow instructions
He said he was confident India would emerge from the crisis "successfully"

What cricket means to West Indians

Mar 25, 2020 : By Sean Devers

Guyanese Maurice Fernandes was the first West Indian Captain to win a Test match.

By 1838, the agriculture production in British Guiana (now Guyana) had fallen by 60 percent and plantations were
being shut down since most of the freed slaves refused to work for plantation owners who had mistreated them.

The British were growing sugar cane in Guyana
and had entered an Indian Province called Uttar Pradesh in 1765


Under British rule thousands of Indians wanted to escape the poor living conditions opted

to go to the ‘new world’ to work as indentured servants on the Sugar cane plantations in Guyana

nd later (1845) Trinidad and Jamaica.

By the 1860s Indians also settled in smaller numbers in St. Lucia, Grenada, St Vincent and St Kitts.

The first batch of 244 Indians arrived in British Guiana on a ship named Whitby on May 5th 1838

Many of their descedents still work on the sugar Estates, still remain in Guyana, St Kitts, Barbados and Trinidad.

Shivnarine-Chanderpaul was the glue that held the batting together in the new Century !

It's early days yet, and things may improve.

But how India copes with the economic and social fallout of its biggest ever disruption

possibly since the bloody partition at the end of British rule in 1947

It will also be the biggest test for any government since the founding of the republic.

There are fears that an outbreak in the country of 1.3 billion people could result in a catastrophe.

The man, identified as Baldev Singh, had visited a large gathering to celebrate the Sikh festival of Hola Mohalla....

The six-day festival attracts around 10,000 people every day.
