Being cooped up in our houses for so long is not an easy job for all. This period is indeed extremely one of the toughest for everyone especially for the poor people or old age couple whose children live in other cities for work.
This time is really hard to find a sufficient household for those elderly people. It became a torment and a nightmare for those who are unable to get food like migrant daily wages workers as well.
While most of the people have isolated themselves inside their house, some of them have come forward brilliantly to help those needy people in a very brave and commendable way.
Aritra Das, youngest producer of Bollywood along with his father Dr Amar Nath Das are wanted to curb this crisis. So, Aritra reached out to Smita Aggarwal, founder of “YehmeraIndia”. He wanted to help those needy people and also wish to get help in return in term of commodities, logistics, and finance.
On a note Aritra shares, “we started serving the ration from Belgharia to Saltlake to Rajabazar to everywhere in the city. Not only we are doing this inside the city, but also distributed the ration and food from Madhyamgram to Sandeshkhali. The migrant workers are truly helpless in this situation and it is our duty to keep them overcome the fear.”
Whereas Dr Amar Nath Das added, “For me social work is love, I have been doing this since my childhood. The inspiration came from my parents, for being a medical practitioner it is my duty to help the needy and I am doing the best possible way to help the society whenever the crisis happens. I only do it because I feel the urge to do so. I want to create the awareness, and for this purpose, my family members, friends and many peoples stand by my side always. This is my biggest achievement I think.
Furthermore, he shares, “We even reach to the Songachi Sex Workers and Theatre Practitioners/workers to distribute the ration. We also help a child care centre in Dumdum.”
