Let us organize community resources when the migrants returnAfter September 2020, perhaps only herd immunity would work. The Central and State Governments cannot lock people for months together in their homes. They need work. And so the trains from Howrah to Trivandrum would carry thousands and they would alight at Salem, Erode, Coimbatore, Tiruppur etc where the tiny and small companies will resume normal business. They may or may not get jobs soon after or they might not be able to earn what they were earning pre-COVID19. Let us do something for such people. Let us mobilize money and allow entrepreneurs to sell idli for Re 1/ a piece, as the old lady in the Coimbatore suburb is still doing or make meals available at cheaper rates.
Only such initiatives will help every single migrant to at least feel safe. KPR Mills at Tiruppur is not only giving them decent salaries, but the owner reportedly encourages them to acquire additional qualifications so that they get good and better jobs elsewhere too. This is exactly the kind of initiatives that we need, pan-India. Forget the Govt. packages and plans. Let us do our bit to its best.
