Life in Lockdown - Day 53, May 16, 2020

May 16, 2020

Nothing to report. Just a video I will try and upload. The story of the migrants for whom no one took any responsibility is heartrending. Here's P Sainath on First Post.

It reflects on us as a society - save the few who went out of their comfort and helped them with water and food, the governments simply washed their hands off the migrants and their troubles.

I guess it will always be the same. The weakest and the voiceless will always be easily sacrificed. But I never thought they would do it so blatantly. Human life is precious. Human dignity is precious. If we cannot treat human life with respect and dignity, we have failed as a society.

The collective leadership can squarely take the blame for doing nothing.
