A group of Bengaluru youths show that the city has good spirit during the time of a crisis. After news of migrants from UP staying in cement pipes went viral, these young people pooled in money and booked flight tickets for the poor migrants and their children to fly back to their state.
Among the migrants, a man suffers from a physical disability and another one had to undergo mental agony after his wife eloped, during the lockdown, abandoning their small children.
The migrants had arrived in Bengaluru in search of work and as soon as they arrived, the lockdown began. With no earnings, they started to beg for food and stayed in cement pipes in Majestic.
The turn of the tide has allowed these migrants to be dropped off at the airport, from where they will make their way home.
