The heart-wrenching image of a toddler trying to wake up his dead mother on Bihar’s Muzzafarpur railway platform will forever haunt us. Ruksana was a reverse migrant who, despite her health condition, had been labouring in Gujarat to support her family.
15-year-old Jyoti Kumari was travelling, with her ailing father, riding pillion, on a pink bicycle, from Gurgaon to Bihar, her native State, a distance of more than 1,200 kms. This was another unforgettable image of India’s migrant
worker exodus. Jyoti’s story of grit made headlines around the world and went viral on social media.
