Current pandemonium due to fatally flawed, filthy rich, polluting industrial civilization

By Chandra Vikash*
Sub: Open letter to the Prime Minister for public health and economic recovery plan in face of coronavirus pandemic: 
Dear Narendra bhai,
As a complex systems researcher, innovation coach and visionary, I would like to first applaud you for trying so many out of the box ideas to keep the public morale high in face of the paralyzing Lockdown in face of the CoronaVirus Pandemic that is still unfolding.
Based on my interactions with thousands of people in India and globally, I would like to share following insights and recommendations with the Indian government. A mild non-HCID COVID-19 pandemic has been converted into a grave pandemonium due to the fatally flawed Filthy Rich dirty, polluting and diseased industrial civilization.
This should settle doubts and distractions on why and how the nature-friendly scientific Indian/Hindu way of life can not only check the pandemic but also prevent more such in the future. This is both a responsibility and an opportunity for Bharat to live up to its status as a global thought leader or Vishvaguru.
Insight #1: Hospitals with their claustrophobic air-conditioning and high aerosol ambiance that carries the CoronaVirus for longer - up to 4 hrs, are becoming hotspots for local transmission globally. Doctors and healthcare staff who are getting exposed to high "viral load" are endangered and dying in greater numbers even if they are young and healthy. Esp. as most of them do not have foolproof PPE protection.
Recommendation #1: It is safer at this stage to #Lockdown all the allopathic hospitals with air-conditioning and set up Open Air Ayurvedic Mohalla Clinics managed by the Local Communities. Milder infections can be treated at home.
Insight #2: Smokers who have afflicted lungs have much higher chances of dying from COVID-19. Air Pollution in Delhi is at safe levels during the total #Lockdown. Earlier toxic and hazardous pollution level was equivalent to smoking 10 cigarettes. These also increase the aerosol-load in the atmosphere.
Recommendation #2: Smokers must take their own responsibility. The #Lockdown should now continue only for all kinds of polluting sources - motorcars, air-conditioners, diesel/CNG/kerosene-based power generators, coal-fired power plants, industries, landfills, and sewage drains. Alternatives must be found out locally to eliminate all these pollution with heavily enforced deterrent penalties for the violators.
Insight #3: More than 15 crores of jobs and livelihoods are lost in the preceding grinding economic slowdown and now with the CoronaVirus #Lockdown. These cannot come back from the old dirty and polluting industries that will create more Public Health hazard. This includes the 5 crores job deficit from before.
Recommendation #3: LACE Model for Localised Abundance & Circular Economy should be adopted as a Mission-mode National Policy. This will not only bolster Public Health with better locally produced and distributed natural food and nutrition and thus boost immunity, but it will also create abundant livelihood opportunities locally for all. 
This includes one-time redistribution of the population by making rural areas more attractive to foster reverse migration from the densely populated urban areas which are also the CoronaVirus hotspots. For Lace Model click HERE
Insight #4: One of the big reasons for India's poor health leading to anxiety and depression is lack of family bonding and sexual intimacy among married couples. Lockdown has enhanced family bonding and sexual intimacy by giving back their own time and removing distractions of escaping out of unhappy and distressing homes. 
Lockdown on gyms and other air-conditioned claustrophobic places has been effective as these are hotspots for local transmission. Sexual health not only is a sign of vitality but also of good immunity from any kind of viral infection. Mobile phones are a big factor in lower immunity, health and fitness - both physical and mental.
Recommendation #4: Just as you have been promoting Yoga and Ayurveda, you should also become a global ambassador for Kamasutra. You should recommend married couples to try the difficult KS positions which will bring them closer together, improve family life and boost their health, fitness and immunity. 
Sports, music, dance -- especially classical forms -- should be promoted to wean away youth and children from mobile phones and boost their health, fitness and immunity. Similarly, as you have proved old age doesn't mean sickness. With good lifestyle practices, we can have good immunity, health, and fitness even up to 120 years of human lifespan.
