The entire world is fighting the outbreak of this pandemic called Coronavirus or Covid- 19. Every one is gripped with an uncertainty and to some extent fear.
Most of us as safe in the confines of our house but what about those who are out on the roads. The so called underprivileged ones.
Although Governments, NGO’s, Corporates, celebrities and people in the position to do something are doing there best to help these poor people and yet a large section of people are not getting the kind of help they expected from there government.
The country where i reside which is India, one such section of people belong to migrant workers. These are the people who had come to major cities and Metros in search of jobs and livelihood.
Ever since the lockdown was announced on 25th March 2020, the entire nation has come to a standstill, and almost everybody is staying in their respective homes and is praying and hoping that this crisis come to an end.
But the crisis seems to be heading north for the worst it seems and these migrant workers have ran out of resources to continue living in the cities they had come to. With all the transportation closed they have no other means to travel to their respective homes in the natives than to walk. News channels and WhatsApp feeds are flooded with images and videos of these migrants who are walking on highways to reach their native lands.
In Mumbai there is one person who took upon himself to see to it that these migrant workers can travel safely to their homes in their native lands such as Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Karnataka etc.
