The COVID-19 lockdown in India may have succeded in restricting the spread of the virus in the subcontinent but unfortunately also created the largest migration routes. Cut off from their homes, millions of Migrant daily wage labourers from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar are stuck hundreds of kms away from their homes and are forced to walk back home as an only option.
Unemployement and Poverty are just 2 of their problems now.All of these laborers have family who share their sorrow and journey alike. Children as young as 1 are learning to walk their firt steps on roads stretching hundereds of kms.
Many families under lockdown suffer from poverty and inability to provide for the bare essentials to their families in the time of national calamity. In this hour of need, I ask you to channel your inner patriot and ask yourself, "If not me, who? and if not now, when"?
