[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A great reverse migration is underway in India. From my balcony I could see people (mostly laborers), who wanted to move back to their native places/states, had assembled. They were waiting for the registration and free rail tickets. Delhi Transport Corporation also has supplied buses, to move these people to railway station. All Indians were urged to stay at home for three weeks to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. The closure of all but essential services has made it impossible for the daily wagers/mostly laborers to live in the rented shanties of big cities. In the absence of trains and buses, central government has arranged Special Trains for these people for their native places. This family must have started the journey early in the morning before sun rise. To reach this destination, they must have walked down the long distance. Don’t know how many Kilometers. Tired? Yes.

Hi Kapil,
a sad photo of this poor family in difficult times

Good morning Kapil, from this side of our home(planet) Earth
We wish all the best for the future of this lovely family... What an excellent picture message....

When many of us think about migration, the image of birds winging their way south in their wrinkled V-shaped gathers is one that often comes to our mind. The migration of all and also human will be for ever and ever
