India, Twitter brawl in public as latest content rules begin to bite

Re: Broad brush.

I have been to India twice, 2002 and 2011. Like anywhere a mix of good and bad, but there seems to be a stark difference between the much more relaxed south, from the Chennai/Bangalore line down, to the mid part of country above where we encountered a lot more aggression and just sheer hassle at virtually every step. Goa was a bit of an exception to that. Haven't been to the far north yet so not sure what to expect but Sikkim and Assam look nice.

Just reading this about the current situation there which is really scary, and how the Gov't is absolutely hiding the truth on Covid death rates etc. Seem like at least 10/1 more than reported, and most likely a lot more. For example in rural villages only 1 in 5 deaths are reported even in normal times.
