Migrants are not MigrantsThere is a proverb that “prevention is better than cure”. When an epidemic appears which becomes pandemic subsequently, there is need to be more causes in day to day life of a person. In absence of any specific drug or preventive which are yet to be invented the duty of the Government or the knowledgeable persons of the society is to keep safe the whole mass. Therefore, the question of prevention arises. Social Distancing, wearing Mask, Lock-down, Hand Wash, etc. are essential ingredients to stop spreading of the present disease.
It is really very pathetic that we are naming or calling our people as " Migrants" after their home coming. Are they outsiders or foreigners ? Have they done some illegal activities? Are they our enemies ? If not, so why we are segmenting them instead of helping and supporting them. They are our people, they are in trouble, they have nothing to eat, they return home by walking hundreds and thousands of kilometers. with their family carrying small kids & pregnant wife in empty stomachs.
It is our humble request not to use migrants for them. They are part of us. They are the real heroes to build the infrastructure of our nation. But,.....they are very poor, they get their food for their families & kids from daily wage. Now they don't have any work to do and are not able to manage food, medicines, necessities for their kids, elderly & family. This situation is in each village and we together can help our people. This is the right time for doing something for our society, for our people, for our community, for our nation. Government is not only sufficient to manage this situation. Your small or little can impact big, your single giving will feed a hunger, a penny of your donation can make a family safe from CORONA VIRUS.
We are just trying not to help them only but to unite us all to help them and we sure we can overcome this pandemic situation.
