Thousands of people waiting for a handful of buses.
This seems like a scene of partition where crowd of thousands gathered at one place to leave the city. No this pic was taken at Anand Vihar bus station. Workers, labour n employees leaving the city, following #CoronaLockdown— Urooj Khan (@mynameisurooj) March 28, 2020

And now, this heartbreaking image of a child sleeping on a suitcase as his mother drags it forward.
Walking with a small group on Agra highway, the child must have gotten too tired to be able to take a single step and hence decided to rest his body on the suitcase.
Mother being a mother, decided not to disturb him.
On being asked why the group did not take the many buses started by the government, the exhausted woman decided to stay quiet.

When our own people show such insensitivity towards their own people who work & build our buildings and roads & live in poor conditions. The problem is that our politicians always take these people for granted & only talk about them during elections.When they vote they fool them.— Shivam (@ShivamJ24) May 14, 2020
