The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the focus to a section of society that was almost forgotten and invisible under the shroud of development in India. The lockdown was implemented within 4 hours and it stranded almost 21 million migrant workers whereever they were in India. With no jobs, no money and no food the migrant workers were left on their own, who decided to return to their native places. The plight of these migrant workers first became visible when people started missing them at their homes and workplaces. The migrant workers on their way home have been beaten by police and mauled over by trucks on highways.
