''' '' MERCIES BY METRICS '' '''

IN INDIA STREETS GO DESOLATE : ASIA SHIVERS. And under strict regimen of protocols, the prayers for mercy began in Asia, for entire mankind.

The supplicant intoned and wept. The dazed participants, eyes lowered and fuzzed, recited mercy.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan, H.E. O''Captain Imran  Khan, sat upright, his head up, looking into the distance abyss.
''We have nothing O'' Lord, intoned the praying scholar - whither we ought to turn?''   

INDIA : ''WHY WE ARE COMING - AND'' the setting was a packed hall, just recent years, the laughter ringing and handsome - Navjot, leading. 

THIS RECOVERING CANCER PATIENT - CHOKED in mercy tears, her hair chemo'd - her body bloated, her voice shaky - a pin drop to blur.

Navjot stirred and swiveled restless, gaze bound, eyes shining mirroring agony all, and in the very  front row, where Kapil Sharma's proud and dignified mother graced.

She and all wept. Her husband, Kapil's father, too, had died of a very painful cancer.

A faraway look flickered in Kapil Sharma's eyes. This highly, - and at times, overly sensitive master artist, always, could relate to the sufferings of mankind, just as he can relate to the foibles of man.

And so, just recently, of the 125 people arrested in New York City over offenses that law enforcement officials described as related to the coronavirus pandemic, 113 were black or Hispanic.

Of the 374 summonses from March 16 to May 5, a vast majority - 300 - were given to black and Hispanic New Yorkers.

Videos of some of some of the arrests are hard to watch. In one posted to  Facebook, later, a group of some six police officers are seen tackling a black women in a subway station as her young child looks on.

''She's got a baby with her!'' a bystander shouts. Police officials told The Daily News the woman had refused to comply when officers directed her put the mask she was wearing over her nose and mouth.

Contrast that with photographs across social media showing crowds of sun-seekers packed into parks in wealthy, whiter areas of the city, longing undisturbed as police officers hand out masks.

And in revert to the beginning of this post, the Truth is :

Medical Care in entire Asia, and the developing world, is a ''sudden horrid strangeness''. And with that, I best leave it here, and return to my prayers and the Founder Framers to their struggles.

But be assured, that Yee all, O'' students of the developing world that Medical Care, in the entire developing world, will remain a focus on The World Students Society.

Three months into the biggest public health and economic crisis of our era, authors and publishers are racing to produce timely accounts of the outbreak, with works that range from-

From reported narratives about the science of pandemics and autobiographical accounts of being quarantined, to spiritual guides on coping with grief and loss, to a book about the ethical and philosophical quandaries raised by the pandemic, written by the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek.

Several forthcoming books look at the dire economic consequences of the pandemic, including  ''Going Dark'' by the Wall Street journal reporter Liz Hoffman, which Crown acquired, and Adam Tooze's ''Shutdown,'' which Viking plans to release in 2021.

Other publishers have snapped up reported narratives, like an account by The New York Times researcher Emma Goldberg of New York Medical school students who graduated early to help treat coronavirus patients in overwhelmed hospitals, and-

And personal accounts like ''Quarantine! How I survived the Diamond Princess Coronavirus Crisis,'' a forth coming book by the novelist Gay Courter, who was among the passengers on a cruise ship that docked off the coast of Japan while coronavirus spread among the passengers and the crew.

In August, Bloomsbury is releasing Bill Hayes's ''How We Live Now,'' a collection of vignettes and photographs that captures New York's desolate streets.

Aggressive police enforcement of social-distancing measures is nearly certain to harm the health and dignity of the city's black and Hispanic residents.

New York is facing a public health crisis, not a spike in crime. Black and Hispanic New Yorkers are already suffering disproportinately from the coronavirus.

They don't need more policing. They need more help.

The Honor and Serving of the latest ''World in Turmoil'', continues. The World Students Society thanks the authors Alexander Alter and The Editorial Board of The New York Times.

With respectful dedication to the Leaders of the developing world, and then Students, Professors and Teachers.
